Ghana 2018 World Cup qualifying opponents, Uganda are in non-agreement with head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic over unpaid wages after revealing that he has failed to agree with the Ugandan hierarchy owed him.
The Serb who was handed the Cranes technical head in 2013 claims he is owed wages and bonuses over $60,000 throwing his future at the national side in doubt.
Sredojevic who is preparing his team for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers double header against Egypt said he met his employers on Monday amidst rumours that he has abandoned his post. He said;
“We have been in a meeting with the FA president Moses Magogo and some of his members, and they agreed that I have not been paid $64,000 in salary and bonuses”.
“We decided that the matter will now be handled by my agent Ivica Stankovic”, Sredojevic told KweséESPN.
He also denied any reports claiming that he has abandoned his post as the technical head of the Cranes after he saw off the local side of Uganda to a 5-1 win over South Sudan in the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) on Saturday.
The Uganda FA also accepted the meeting taking place as they released a statement saying;
“FUFA and the Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic have on Monday 24th July, 2017 held a meeting at FUFA House in Mengo in relation to the ongoing speculations about the status and future of the coach”.
“The parties have agreed that FUFA CEO Edgar Watson talks to the agent of the Uganda Cranes coach Micho over the matters”, the statement continued.
Sredojevic joined Uganda in 2013 and has guided the local side to qualify for both the 2014 and 2016 CHAN tournaments and also ensured the senior national team reach for the first time in 28 years, the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2017.
