Uganda national football coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojević has terminated his contract over failure by Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) to clear his salary arrears.
The Uganda Cranes coach terminated his three-year contract with FUFA citing outstanding debt of salary and bonuses of Shs230m.
Addressing the press on Saturday at Kabira Country Club in Bukoto, a Kampala suburb, Micho said: “My agent and I had seven days of talks with FUFA but all yielded nothing,” Micho said. “I have not been allowed to take Uganda to the World Cup, they succeeded to remove me.”
He added: “Termination of the contract happened last night. I have not cheated, I have not stolen, but I have come here to clear the air.”
Micho said it is not easy to be a coach of Uganda Cranes, revealing that it has always been a tag of war for him to get his salary.
Micho’s contract with FUFA was due to expire in 2018 but there has been uncertainty over his job for some time now.
Micho will remain in Uganda’s history for he helped Uganda qualify for African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2017 after 39 years of trying. Micho said he has several offers from both big clubs and national teams.
