Former Uganda Cranes coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic feels his successor Sebestien Desabre found a better Cranes team that the Serb inherited way back in 2013.

Micho, now at South Africa’s Orlando Pirates replaced Bobby Williamson in 2013 during the FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifiers campaign while Desabre got the team in December a couple of days to the 2018 Chan competition.

“With due respect to my colleague,” said Micho in an interview with Monitor Sport. “I believe he got a good product that is much better than the product that was rock bottom in the World Cup qualifiers in 2013 when I took over,” he added.

“I believe that we have done some good job in between that you are having a recognized man (Micho) that is feared and respected playing against any team on the continent.

Micho also wishes the best for the French man and hopes he gets the much needed support from all stakeholders and feels he will do a good job.

I just wish the federation gives you the best possible support, that supporters give you the best possible support, that all the coaches in Uganda – technical people give you necessary support, that players are doing their the best. 
I have no doubt that you as a person that is coming from the French football school with talented players; you will do a good job.

Micho, who started his African journey in Uganda with SC Villa way back early 2000s, also admitted being a supporter and fan to the national team, The Cranes.

As your colleague, and a supporter, this time, of Uganda Cranes, I wish you best. May the Almighty God bless you.  For God and My Country.

The Serb, who has coached in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Sudan among others remains a hero in Ugandan football after guiding Uganda Cranes to the 2017 Afcon after 38 years’ absence.
