Ugandan Cranes coach Milutin Sredojević aka Micho has dismissed claims on social media that he resigned from his position as head coach for the national team.
The Serbian football coach and former player who manages the Ugandan national team, was enraged by claims made by Allan Aloysius Ssewanyana, commonly known as ‘Omusajja wa Bwino’, a Ugandan sports journalist, human resource manager and politician.
Ssewanyana, the elected Member of Parliament for Makindye Division West and a representative for DP, the oldest political party in Uganda, in what he called “Breaking News”, claimed Thursday that the Serbian had thrown in a towel.
“Uganda cranes National team coach Micho to Join Libyan Club….the game against South Sudan is his last game,” Ssewanyana said.
Micho quoted the statement and went to his twitter where he asked Ssewanyana to kindly leave him out of politics.
“I politely request Hon. Sewanyana to not mix me with politics,” Micho said.

He added: “Am totally focused on Uganda Cranes. If I go, I will call farewell press conference.”
In 2016, Micho who led Uganda to the African Cup of Nations (Afcon) championship in Gabon after a 38-year absence, nearly resigned after missing a salary for five months.
He threatened legal action against FUFA for breach of contract.
He explained that although some people wanted him to resign because the FUFA has breached a contract they have with him, he would not throw in the towel.
