Ugandan coach Micho blasts former Cranes striker Obua for match analysis

Uganda national football team coach, Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic is spoiling for a fight with a former Cranes international David Obua.

Known for his Twitter rants, the Serbian coach has attacked former player terming him as a failure while likening him to a boda boda (motorbike) driver.

Micho’s tweet is a direct response to Obua’s comments on the Uganda national team’s performances during that solitary goal loss to Ghana here last weekend, in both teams’ opening game of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

Obua, who is the son of the country’s former FA president, turned out for top South African club Kaizer Chiefs and Scottish club Hearts during his heyday and is now doing punditry for the tournament on SuperSport.

He recently suggested in one of his analysis that Cranes were not balanced and lacked a fighting spirit against Ghana, factors that contributed to the team’s loss to the West African powerhouse.

Uganda will next play Egypt and Mali in their Group D games in Port Gentil and Oyem respectively.
