The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has acknowledged the resignation of coach Micho and released a statement in response to the development.

It is now confirmed that Milutin Sredojevic, known as Micho, will not be guiding Uganda for the remainder of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. This comes after a few days of rumors over his possible resignation. The Serbian has been managing the Uganda Cranes since 2013.

FUFA announced in a statement that they had received communication from Micho; deciding to terminate his contract with Uganda. The Uganda FA press statement was an expression of gratitude to Micho over his time as coach of the national team.

It read, “FUFA would like to thank Mr. Sredojevic for the services rendered to the Uganda Cranes during his time as coach of the National team especially when he guided the country to the AFCON finals in Gabon for the first time since 1978. Uganda will forever keep those memories with them.”

The Uganda FA statement also touched on finding Micho’s replacement. “FUFA will keep the public and members of the football family updated in due course on the way forward about the technical aspects of the Uganda Cranes.”

Uganda plays Egypt, on 31st August and 5th September, 2017, in the third and fourth rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. The two countries also faced off at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
