Following Micho’s termination of his contract to coach the National team, Football governing body in Uganda, Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has come up to thank the outgoing coach for the good work rendered to Ugandan football.
In a press statement released on Saturday by FUFA, hours after Micho’s press conference, the federation confirmed that it received Micho’s termination letter and it would like to wish him the best wherever he goes.
“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. FUFA wishes Micho the best in his future adventures,” the statement reads in part.
It should be noted that on Monday, July 24, 2017, FUFA held a meeting with Micho at FUFA House in Mengo to pave the way forward for the two parties.
The meeting which was attended by top FUFA officials including FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo, Vice President Justus Mugisha, Second Vice President Darius Mugoye and FUFA CEO Edgar Watson bore no fruits as far as Micho’s stay was concerned.
Micho who claimed that he terminated his contract with FUFA on Friday night was unveiled as the new Cranes coach on a two year deal on May 21, 2013 at FUFA House in Mengo by Lawrence Mulindwa who was a FUFA president then.
The Serbian was succeeding Bobby Williamson who had recently been sacked after a spell of bad results.
