Former Uganda Cranes tactician Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has issued an ultimatum to Fufa pay his UGX194 million (US$54,000) debt before the team’s next 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Sredojevic who guided Uganda Cranes to the 2017 Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Gabon after 39-years of waiting terminated his contract with the Uganda FA on July 28th because of non payment of his outstanding arrears and bonuses.
Although Sredojevic claimed the debt was UGX230 million (US$64,000) two weeks ago, the Fufa President, Moses Magogo last week made it clear that the debt is UGX194 million.
“Through my agent Ivica Stankovic we have written to the Uganda FA to effect this payment as quickly as possible. They will need to pay before World Cup qualifiers or risk expulsion from the qualifiers,” stated Sredojevic.
The Serbian who rejoined South African Premier League side, Orlando Pirates last week said that the debt must be paid quickly because that is his blood and sweat. “So every coin purely deserved and properly earned,” he added.
Uganda Cranes who are under an interim coaching duo of Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba will face host seven time African champions Egypt on August 31st before the return leg on September 5th in the return leg in Alexandria.
