FUFA will draw up a long term contract extension for Milutin Micho Sredojevic to finally end the saga that has tracked his rumored dismal after he failed to lead Uganda Cranes to the 2014 World Cup and most recently the 2015 Afcon.

The exclusive revelation comes at the heels of the government of Uganda’s decision to have say in the appointment of Uganda’s future football coaches.

Micho’s current deal is due to expire next year in May but the federation are now preparing to make the announcement that he has committed for another cycle which stands to take him beyond 7 years at the helm. Soccer website KickOff.com recently reported that a South African side, Free State Stars badly wants to hire Sredojevic as their new head coach. Micho took charge of the Cranes last year from Rwanda on a two year contract.

Fufa president Moses Magogo feels the Serb is the right man to steer the Cranes towards qualification to the Africa Cup of Nations code named Project Cameroon 2019 whilst competing in the 2017 Afcon and Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

“Project Cameroon 2019 will have some credible base if Micho who has so far drafted young exciting players into the Cranes is given time, by which assertion Magogo may find himself with no chance but to let the coach see fruition of plans,” a source at Mengo intimates to Red Pepper Online editon.

However, this new development could come under challenge since has struggled with his Shs20m monthly wages yet the government does not fully take responsibility of the national team financially. Charles Bakkabulindi, State Minister for Sports is believed to have been against Micho’s appointment in the first place.
