Micho: This is Not the Right Time For Me to Leave Cranes

There has been a lot of concern and hullabaloo about the unclear future of Uganda cranes head coach Milutin Sredejovic alias Micho since Uganda qualified for the 2017 African cup of Nations in September this year.

Since then, pills several reports have come out to indicate the Serbian tactician could dump Uganda Cranes for better offers including Ghana, more about Nigeria and South Africa, help but Micho has downplayed the claims and insisted he is still committed to Cranes.

“I have heard and read many stories about my salary, my future but I do not think that is important at the moment,” Micho said.

“I want to say that please leave me alone, personally I’m contented and I have a contract running until June 2018,” he added.

Micho also stated that Uganda’s major concern at the moment should be how the team will be facilitated ahead of the African cup of Nations not his job.

“I believe the critical aspect we should be discussing at the moment should be how we have enough and better preparations for the upcoming tournament and make sure that the team is fully facilitated and funded but not my job,” a furious Micho said.

“I have showed my commitment towards Uganda in bad and good times and I do not think this would be the right time for me to leave,” Micho added.

Micho also revealed that very many teams have contacted him but he has boldly turned down the offers.


“I cannot leave Uganda at the moment when they are on a high, the team is doing well and has qualified to AFCON, why would you leave your work unfinished?” asked Micho.

“Nigeria approached me, I refused to join them and several other offers have come my way but I told them I’m still committed to Uganda,” he explained.

On Wednesday, Micho revealed his 2017 African cup of Nations plan to the media during the Fufa weekly press conference that includes players joining camp early and several international friendlies including Tunisia and Libya before the end of the year.
