EXCLUSIVE | Micho casts doubt over his Uganda future
After guiding Uganda to a 5-1 win over South Sudan in the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers in Kampala on Saturday, Micho hinted that he might leave the Cranes over salary arrears.
Speaking exclusively to KingFut, the 47-year-old said, “due to non-payment of my salaries, my contract with Uganda is null and void, practically not valid which gives me a chance to go wherever I want. In the next 48 hours, I will announce what I will do.”
The Serbian coach, who has been in charge of Uganda since 2013, had guided the Cranes to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, which marked their first participation in the tournament since 1978. They’re now one step away from reaching the 2018 CHAN, as they’ll face Rwanda in the final qualification phase in August.
Meanwhile, the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) said that Micho “hasn’t forwarded any communication to FUFA about rumours that he has resigned.” They added that they’ll meet with Sredojevic on Monday and will discuss his future with the team.
“We understand our Coach as a professional who will address any issues with his employers first then a formal communication will be made,” said FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein in a statement.
Uganda are scheduled to host the Pharaohs in their third group game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification on August 31. The Cranes, who were drawn in Group E alongside Egypt, Ghana, and Congo, currently sit second on four points, two behind leaders Egypt.
