Micho Sredojevic could tender in his resignation as Uganda Cranes coach in the next 48 hours.
Its understood that the Serb’s source of frustrations stems from reported arrears from Fufa, although the federation is on record saying they have cleared Micho’s salary and ad-ons.
The development comes barely hours after the Serbian’s team skinned South Sudan 5-1 in the 2018 Chan qualifiers at the Star Times Stadium Lugogo on Saturday in Kampala.
Former Orlando Pirates head coach, Micho could be in line for his second stint with the Buccaneers with his Uganda post in jeopardy.
The Siya crew has been led to believe that ‘Micho’ is in line as a potential replacement for Kjell Jonevret if the Swede leaves Pirates before the season gets underway.
Sredojević had a stint with the Soweto giants back in 2006 prior to joining Young Africans in Tanzania, and it is thought that he is in the running to come back to the club should Jonevret be let go.
‘Micho’ was linked with the Bafana Bafana post recently following Shakes Mashaba’s departure, however that never materialised and he remained with the Cranes and led them into the African Cup of Nations.
The crew tracked down the coach, who said that his issues with Uganda stem from a non-payment of salary, although he didn’t say much about the future.
The Serbian wouldn’t comment on the link with Pirates, though did explain, “In next 48 years will announce what there is to do… Due to non-payment of salaries my contract with Uganda is null and void, practically not valid, giving me the chance to go wherever I want.”
Uganda’s football association have, however, insisted that the 47-year-old is still under contract.
After praising four-goal hero Paul Mucureezi and his team for executing his instructions to the letter, Micho – who wore a subdued face throughout – let go of his frustrations.
“This country has treated me in some of the most unfair ways,” said the 47-year-old.
News mid this week filtered through that Micho was on his way out after a Libyan club offered him significant amounts of money.
In attempting to clear the air, the Serb instead left everyone guessing, saying “after the game on Saturday, only God knows.”
This is not the first time Micho is up in arms with Fufa. There was a sustained public spat between him and Fufa president Moses Magogo, again over unpaid dues, after Uganda qualified for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Many had expected Micho to quit after the Afcon finals in Gabon but that never materialised.
Micho took over the role of coaching Cranes in May 2013 from Scottish Bobby Williamson.
