FUFA goes mute as Coach Micho flags in Plan B

Coach Micho

The Uganda Football Federation association (FUFA) has gone mute following the breath taking news of the departure of the Uganda Cranes Manager.

The Serbian born tactician Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic is expected to sign a contract with South Africa’s top Premier League side, Orlando Pirates but as you know our talkative FUFA since when they promised to get back to us, till now they are still in a silent mode.

Sources in Johannesburg reveal that the former Uganda Cranes coach is expected to put pen to paper before Saturday ahead of the pre-season training which starts on Monday.

“Micho’s agent Ivica Stankovic met with Orlando Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza and the deal is just waiting for signing. In-fact the agent is also looking for an assistant who will work together with the new coach,” added the source.

Sredojević had a stint with the Buccaneers as Orlando Pirates is known in 2006 where he guided them to the semi final stage of the CAF Champions League.

It’s also said that the Serbian has always had ambitions of managing a big African Club because coaching a national team does not keep him busy all the time.

The South African team is likely to part ways with Swedish born coach Kjell Jonevret whom they signed in February this year.

Following the departure of Mushin Ertugral in November last year, caretaker coach, August Palacios was in-charge of the team. Orlando Pirates finished 11th in the 2016/2017 League in South Africa.
