The Federation for Uganda Football Associations has dismissed as rumours, reports that Uganda Cranes Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic resigned his position.
“Mr. Sredojevic hasn’t forwarded any communication to FUFA about rumours that he has resigned his post as National team coach of Uganda Cranes,” reads part of the statement on the federation website.
Media has been awash for the past two days about the resignation of the Cranes tactician hours after a 5-0 win against South Sudan in the CHAN qualifiers.
Micho reportedly said he quit his job because he had not been paid his salary for over 6 months.
“I worked with SC Villa and left without being paid salary for over 10 months. The same is happening with Uganda Cranes. I don’t feel appreciated so let me go where my efforts will be rewarded,” he said.
Micho is said to have been earning a monthly salary of $10,000 (about 36,000,000), which has accumulated for now six months.
Fufa said they would engage Micho to find out his position on the matter before making an official communication.
“We understand our Coach as a professional who will address any issues with his employers first then a formal communication will be made,” FUFA wrote.
