A serbian national Milutin Sredojević Micho that once propelled Uganda Cranes to their first AFCON qualification after 38 years of waiting in 2017 has been reappointed to head the Cranes.
He also helped Uganda to attain it’s best ever FIFA ranking to the 62nd position.
The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) announced Tuesday that Micho has been named the new head coach of Uganda Cranes on a three-year renewable contract effective 1st August 2021.
“He will address the media on Tuesday 3rd August 2021.” FUFA announced.
According to details, the Head coach has a contractual mandate to name his backroom staff.
“After exactly 4 years of AFRICAN FOOTBALL studies on Universities of life and football at ORLANDO PIRATES, ZAMALEK and ZAMBIA, going back to my AFRICAN FOOTBALL HOME,” Micho posted on his twitter account.
The Cranes managerial role became vacant after FUFA sacked Northern Irishman Jonathan Mckinstry after a string of dismal performances.
Micho was first appointed as the national team manager in 2013 where he lasted four years until his departure in 2017.
The 51 year old was a fan favourite before he left for South African side Orlando Pirates where he spent two years.
It was from there that he switched to Egyptian giants Zamalek before joining the Zambian national team,the Chipolopolo in 2020.
