Micho Expected To be Named Today

mind geneva;”>The FA say they are confident Uganda’s a new coach will steer the Cranes to victory in the two June World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Angola and most importantly led the team to CHAN this year.

The Cranes coaching role fell vacant with the sacking of Scotsman Bobby Williamson last month.

“We are hopeful that we shall have a new coach in place before we play Liberia,” assured Rogers Mulindwa, the Fufa publicist, on phone, adding, “I’m very confident.”

However a short message service (sms) addressed to tall Technical Committee members scooped by yours truly on Tuesday, “Urgent technical committee meeting at 10am to plan for the Liberia game and interact with him on new ideas …” confirms our suspicions.

Italian Dario Bonetti and Belgian Tom Sainfeit and another Serbian Nikola Kavazovic are some of the coaches that have expressed interest in the job.

Micho’s 19-year career in the dugout has seen him coach teams in Yugoslavia, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, South Africa and, lately, Rwanda – which was his first national side assignment.

Uganda are bottom of Group J with two points, with Senegal leading on five. The Cranes face Liberia on June 8 before playing Angola seven days later – all at Namboole, Kampala.
