Uganda’s ‘Micho’ to Sue FUFA over unpaid wages

KAMPALA, Uganda, Jan 28 – Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has told the country’s FA (Under NSC) to fulfill its contractual obligations or he will quit and take legal action.

The Serb, who took Uganda to Gabon for their first Africa Cup of Nations in 39 years, says he is owed wages.

Micho concedes the FA is handicapped “without the support of government”.

“If we can sort the situation amicably, that is good and well. But if not, I deeply regret I shall have to go the legal way.”

Under Micho the Cranes bowed out in the group stage in Gabon after suffering narrow defeats to African heavyweights Ghana and Egypt before securing a 1-1 draw against Mali.

Uganda’s performances are a sign that they are improving, especially considering their last appearance at the finals came in 1978.

But their development could be derailed as Micho warned he could soon be pursuing his options.

He has been heavily linked with a number of coaching posts, such as Ghana – the Back Stars’ coach Avram Grant is set to leave after the Nations Cup – and South Africa.
