Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ has asked the Football Federation to pay up his debts (over Shs200m) or he quits the job.
Speaking to local news agency, URN on Sunday, the Serbian made it clear that he cannot continue to suffer like this when his employers are failing to honour the contract.
” I have not been paid wages for four months now and I am also demanding over Shs72m (US$20,000) in bonuses,” said a bitter Sredojevic. On Saturday the coach guided Uganda to qualification for the final phase of the 2018 Total Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) after a 5-1 win over South Sudan at the Philip Omondi Stadium in Kampala. Sredojevic is paid slightly over Shs43m (US$12,000) every month besides the other expenses paid for by the FA.
But the tactician said after the game that he will make a decision on whether to leave or stay in the next 48 hours. “This has been torture working as coach for the Uganda Cranes because they are always in breach of the contract and yet the players think I am even paid in advance because I work so hard,” he added.
Sredojevic who broke the jinx by guiding Uganda to the 2017 Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) after 38-years of waiting said that he wants peace with Uganda and that should be made by paying all his debts. “I am ready to remove one shirt as coach of Uganda and leave for another job, but I will remain big supporter because it’s in Uganda where I launched coaching in Africa with Sports Club Villa in 2001,” he explained.
