The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has in a statement responded to reports concerning the resignation of Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin Sredojevic alias Micho.
After guiding Uganda to a 5-1 win over South Sudan, Micho gave a hint about quitting the job because of unpaid salary.
The Serbian tactician at first indicated he would announce officially in the next 48 hours.
Fufa however has indicated they haven’t received any resignation letter from the coach and therefore still regard him as the national team coach.
“The media is awash with reports that Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has resigned. However Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) would like to put forward to the public important information,” the statement partly reads.
“FUFA President, as per his routine sessions after an international match, will hold a technical meeting with the National Team coach of Uganda Cranes Mr. Sredojevic that will come after the CHAN 2018 convincing 5-1 victory over South Sudan.”
FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo who is on his way from Morocco after attending a series of CAF organized events has already talked to Sredojevic.
“Mr. Sredojevic hasn’t forwarded any communication to FUFA about rumours that he has resigned his post as National team coach of Uganda Cranes,” the letter indicates.
The Federation indicates that they will have a meeting with the coach on Monday.
“However, in the meeting on Monday, FUFA will find out officially from Mr. Sredojevic his position on the rumours and his future as Uganda Cranes Coach,”
Micho has been Uganda Cranes coach since 2013, guiding Uganda to 2017 Africa Cup of Nations the first time in 38 years.
