Micho sacked as Uganda Cranes head coach
What you need to know:
- On 4 September 2016, Micho led the Uganda Cranes team to qualifications for the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 38 years.
- In 2017, Micho Sredojevic resigned, citing non-payment of his salary as per his contract.
- Micho returned for his second stint in charge of the Uganda Cranes and signed a three-year contract in July 2021, succeeding Abdallah Mubiru, who served as an interim coach after Jonathan McKinstry’s departure.
Uganda Cranes head coach was on Thursday fired by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) after failing to propel Uganda to the AFCON 2023.
FUFA Statement: “Today, Thursday 14th September 2023, FUFA and Mr. Milutin Sredojevic agreed to mutually end the existing employment contract between the two parties.
“FUFA appreciates all efforts and commitment by Mr. Milutin during his period as Head coach of Uganda Cranes.”
The statement however doesn’t reflect that the process of recruiting another coach is already on.
