Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovic, the former Coach of Sports Club Villa has resigned his job as the national coach of Rwanda. Micho told redpepper online on Wednesday morning that he had parted ways with the Rwanda Football Associations-Ferwafa. He told our reporter that he was happy to have served Rwanda diligently and prays that their football standards keep growing with time. According to Mitcho, he is going to take a rest as he ponders on his next move. Mitcho declined to comment on whether he would consider applying for the vacant Uganda Cranes coaching job, saying it is still too early.
Last week, Fufa sacked Robert ‘Bobby’ Williamson last week. Although details on why Ferwafa has parted ways with the experienced Serbian are not yet known, Amavubi’s recent loss to Mali in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Kigali, which ended their chances, could have caused the exit. Sredejovic took over the Wasps in October 2011 when he replaced Ghanaian Tetteh Sellas. The Serbian won several trophies with SC Villa in Uganda, League titles with Ethiopia’s St. George, coached Young Africans of Tanzania and also guided South Africa’s Orlando Pirates to the semi finals of the CAF Champions League.
Before joining Rwanda, he helped Sudan’s El Hilal reach the CAF Confederations and Champions League semi finals. With two semifinals of Caf Confederation Cup 2010 and Caf Champions league 2011, Sredejovic is arguably the most successful coach in Al Hilal’s history. Apart from guiding Rwanda to second place at the 2011 Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup in Dare es Salaam, Tanzania, Rwanda has been playing impressive football on the field.
