The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has called an urgent Press Conference where they will unveil the successor of Bobby Williamson, the former Uganda Cranes Coach. Bobby Williamson was sacked by FUFA about two months ago after the cranes 2-0 loss to Liberia in the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers.

Williamson won four regional Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup titles, but failed to take the team to the Africa Cup of Nations. Sources within FUFA told Red Pepper on Monday evening that the former coach of the Amavubi Stars is slated to take over the Cranes job.

It is alleged that immediately after jetting into the country, Micho will sign his contract and later be unveiled to the media. The other coaches who had expressed interest in the Cranes job include; Nikola Kavazovic (Serbia), Samson Siasia (Nigeria), Tom Saintfiet and Portugal’s Paulo Jorge Rebelo.

Micho who took over Rwanda in October 2011 when he replaced Ghanaian Tetteh Sellas has 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.

  1. What FUFA is doing is a grave mistake by signing a broker/commission agent in the name of a coach called Micho, the fellow spends most of his time on seeking commission on illegal player transfers and empty promises of taking teams to the world cup.
    Ask people in Rwanda, chasing Bobby for Micho for a national team, “Mutariya Machozi”.

  2. okay u have changed the coach fine,how about looking into the mngment of FUFA.Bobby wasn’t our only prob .

  3. Which African country has Micho taken to the AFCON, which is the reason Boby was sacked!!

  4. The politics of UGANDA cannot spare football and it will b a waste of my energy and money to go Namboole to watch my National team.May b it the regime of “ever losers”
