Micho Wary of Congo Threat, Warns of Complacency

Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ has cautioned his team ahead of the second world cup group E qualifier against Congo in Namboole.

The Cranes picked a point in the opening game which was against Ghana’s Black Stars away in Tamale city but the Serbian born coach warns his players of self-assurance before the game.

“I believe we picked a vital point in Tamale but we should avoid being complacent, buy ” Micho told journalist during a press conference. “We shouldn’t undermine Congo Brazzaville because they have a good and talented team and a tactical coach in (Pierre) Lechantre.”

Lechantre joined the Red Devils early this year after Claude Le Roy opted not to extend his two year stay in Brazzaville.

“The foundation built by Claude Le Roy while still head coach has made them a strong side. They are physical and tall so we should not undermine them.”

Michob reminded that the nation failed to qualify for last year’s Afcon finals due to complacency after the Cranes failed to beat a dogged Togo home and away after an impressive draw away in Ghana.

“Ugandans have a tendency of getting excited over results. When we beat drew against Ghana 1-1 in Accra, ask everyone undermined Togo and they went ahead to beat us in Namboole.

Uganda and Congo meet on November 12th at Namboole.
