Micho walks out on Uganda Cranes, Eymael and Amrouche in line to succeed him

Former Kenyan based coaches Luc Eymael and Adel Amrouche have emerged as the front runners for the national football team coaching job following the resignation of Serbian Milutin Sredojevic.

The Serbian trainer commonly known as “Micho”, who once applied to coach Kenya’s Harambee Stars, tendered his resignation at a press briefing in Kampala.

“It’s 50 months today since I signed a contract with Fufa. My employment contract with Fufa has been terminated.”

The coach hinted he was quitting owing to continuous delay in receiving his salary as widely speculated stating; “I had reason to resign but I have a million and one reasons for termination of contract.”

HEAD COACH

Meanwhile, Eymael who has managed Kenya’s AFC Leopards alongside top sides in Sudan, South Africa, Gabon and Tunisia has been quoted by several online sources as confirming that he has been contacted by the Ugandan federation.

“They (Fufa) already contacted me yesterday (Wednesday), in case of separation with Micho. If they asked for my file, it is for the head coach role and not to pump balls,” Eymael was quoted by a South African website.

Separately, Amrouche whose stint as trainer of the Burundi and Kenya national team yielded relative success, is also said to be among those being considered to take over from Micho.
