Many fans around the country believe that foreign coaches are getting paid way too much these days, just by the looks of the lucrative deals they are signing and for that fix, for Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic winning has never been more important—wages matter too, what with all the reported for a Shs.62,585,600/= (US$ 25,400) pay per month demand from the Botswana national team?
The southern Africa nation’s federation had earlier singled on the Serbian coach as one of the two shortlisted candidates for the job that fell vacant when Stanley Tshosane was sacked in October 2013 after a string of poor results.
With Micho’s enormous demands that the Botswana federation could not match, they have thus settled on Englishman Peter Butler for the role whose asking price was US$ 8,300.
Every country has a certain budget, but it should go without saying that if Botswana really wanted Micho, they would throw down a few more million per month more for our head football coach who earns a little more than Shs20M from FUFA.
FUFA is yet to confirm or deny the claims coming in from Botswana.
