Micho Sredojevic has returned to coach national football team Uganda Cranes, Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) has confirmed. Back to hold the hopes of Uganda’s football team in his hands, Micho signed a three-year contract with Fufa following months of negotiations between the two parties.

He will replace a caretaker team of coaches, that included Abdallah Mubiru, which took over from coach Johnathan Mckinstry who was fired 17 months before the end of his contract. Micho, 51, had left the Uganda Cranes head coach job in 2017 after he and Fufa disagreed on payment terms.

He would change jobs three times, working in South Africa, Zambia and Egypt. He coached the National Team of Zambia, South African football club Orlando Pirates and Zamalek of Egypt.  Micho officially begins work next month. He will unveil his plan for Uganda Cranes next week.

A month after he takes over, Micho will lead the Uganda Cranes team to qualifier matches for the 2022  Qatar World Cup. The qualifier matches against Rwanda, Kenya and Mali start this September.

Famous for ending Uganda’s long absence at the African Nations Cup, Micho, Micho has “a contractual mandate to name his backroom staff,” said Fufa. (For comments on this story, call, text or whatsapp us on 0705579994, 0779411734, 0200900416 or email us at
