FUFA lining up replacement for Micho as Uganda Cranes’ job exit is almost Certain

The Ugandan Football Association (FUFA) have contacted former Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael over the possible vacancy with the national team according to kickoff.com

Current Cranes coach Milutin Sredojevic has been heavily linked with an exit from the East African side, with Ugandan media convinced he is set to join Orlando Pirates.

Eymael has since revealed that FUFA have requested his CV as they consider him as replacement in case ‘Micho’ does in fact quit the Ugandan national team.


The Serbian Coach guided the Cranes to their first AFCON finals in 38 years earlier this year.

“They [FUFA] already contacted me yesterday [Wednesday], in case of separation with ‘Micho’ [Sredojevic],” Eymael told kickoff.com

“[But] it’s not yet done with ‘Micho’.”

Pressed for further details, the Belgian tactician refused to divulge his discussions with the Ugandan FA, but confirmed that their intention is to consider him for the head coach position.

“If they asked for my file [CV], it is for that [head coach] and not to pump balls,” he adds.

“I can’t say more than what I just told you, [because] Micho’s separation is not yet finalised with Fufa.

“My file is there [with FUFA], like I told you. It seems they are interested, but I can’t say more now.”

According to Ugandan television network NBS, Sredojevic is set to arrive in South Africa on Friday before taking over from Kjell Jonevret on Monday, on a reported “three-year deal.”

Meanwhile, Chippa United have parted ways with assistant coach Tebogo Moloi, who is touted to return to Pirates to assist the Serbian tactician.
