Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has his job secure, at least until the end of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in September 2023.

The Serbian, who has been under media and fan scrutiny over the country’s soulless displays in the qualifiers and the African Nations Championships (CHAN), but he has received the backing of FUFA President Moses Magogo.

“We must give Micho more time because we are undergoing a transition which is painful but one we must undertake,” said Magogo during a media address at the FUFA House, Mengo on Thursday.

“Let’s give him more time to conclude this campaign, and it will actually be embarrassing if he qualifies us to the AFCON.”

Uganda lies third in Group F with four points, the same tally as second-placed Tanzania. The pair won one apiece of the recently concluded doubleheader by 1-0.

Before the last two games, Uganda had on the sixth attempt, failed to make it past the CHAN group stages, in the tournament held in Algeria this year.

“What has made us stand the test of time is that we are not emotional when taking these decisions. So many things could have gone wrong if we did. We sit down, reflect before acting,” added the Budiope East Legislator.

“The team is getting better and let’s discuss his pros and cons after this campaign.”

Uganda will take on Algeria in the penultimate qualification match in June, before the final bout away to bottom side Niger in September.
