Uganda—Milutin Sredojevic professionally known as Micho, the Serbian football manager is back in employment barely a week after quitting Football Association of Zambia, where he was coaching (Chipolopolo), Zambia’s national team.

Micho has been given an opportunity to coach Uganda Cranes for the next three years. A contract a little short than that he had in Zambia.

The Serbian grown manager, left Chipolopolo Zambia on July 17th after a modest 17-month reign in which he presided over twenty seven games out of which twelve were competitive matches winning four, drawing four and being mauled in other several matches.

Micho’s fifteen-match friendly record with Zambia saw him win seven, draw four and lost four.  Media sources revealing that Micho’s contract in Uganda will run from 2021 until 2024.

His return to Uganda cranes has been taken as an honor by fans and players too, considering his bagging of legendary status leading them to two successive CHAN tournaments qualifications.

“We are happy to welcome Micho back to our team. With him we registered glory after another not only in tournaments but friendlies. We remember what he did and how he made us feel during the CHAN tournaments.

“As fans we still take pride in him despite his shortcomings in the previous team, we understand that’s normal in any competition, and more importantly his matrix with our players has always worked out well.” Jesiga Wevanda a Uganda Cranes fan stated.

He was backed by another fan who said, “Micho has earned himself a place in our hearts maybe he had a challenge with the Chipolopolo but here we still accord him respect and ready to support him together with our players.”

The highlight of his first term as Uganda coach saw him guide the Cranes to their first AFCON appearance since 1978 when they qualified for the Gabon 2017 tournament.
