Following a week that had been succulent with the news on the fate of Uganda Cranes Coach Milutin Sredojevic “Micho” Chimpreports broke the news on Saturday last week indicating the Serbian tactician had resigned after guiding Uganda to a 5-1 win against South Sudan, a thing he later came out to deny.
Another week later, Micho has finally announced that he will not be the Cranes coach anymore bringing the curtain down to his 4 year tenure.
The Serbian tactician has on Saturday morning confirmed that his contract with FUFA has been terminated after the two parties failed to agree. This was in a press briefing held at Kabira Country Club in Bukoto ,Kampala.
“I have worked to all my best ability to do well and achieve more. I have given my time and my life to make Uganda proud,” he started.
“I agreed to have a meeting with the Fufa President on Monday and we had constructive discussions, including FUFA CEO and my agent,” “Everything went on smoothly until last night when the terms we asked could not be fulfilled and that meant an end of the road. We agreed to terminate the contract,” Micho added.
It is believed Fufa owes Micho about $ 60,000 in salary arrears and it is the basis upon which the contract has been terminated. Micho went on to highlight the various milestones and achievements he has attained in his reign.
“I did everything under fully accountability, responsibility and transparency and I leave a very contented man knowing I have made Uganda proud,” he said.
” We were able to qualify for African Cup of Nations after 38 years, been to CHAN, won the CECAFA title and several other achievements out of commitment from the technical team, players, Fufa,fans and all the stake holders,” Micho added.
About his next move Micho stated he has got eight offers at the moment including three national teams.
” I want to dismiss rumours that I will be joining a team from Libya. It is true I have many offers but that will be communicated at the right time,” he noted.
Reliable reports however indicate the coach is joining Orlando Pirates in South Africa and will be unveiled on Monday. Micho has been in charge of the Cranes for 85 times, winning 51 games, drawing 21 times and losing on 11 occasions.
