Micho Drags FUFA To court over Pay
By Serestino Tusingwire
Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has vowed to drag Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) to court if he is not paid his salary.
It has been revealed that FUFA has not paid Micho for more than five months.
In his tweet last evening, Micho said he is tired of lies that he is paid awesomely yet he hasn’t been paid for months.
“Due to shameful lies about my duly earned & deserved unpaid salaries I’m forced to take swift legal action while continuing professional job,” Micho tweeted.

Micho had earlier tweeted saying that Uganda is the only country he knows where one can steal trillions and enjoys it untouched yet for him who makes millions happy through football eats nothing.
“I know one country you steal Trillions from peoples’ roads and you eat big enjoying life or you make Millions happy and proud through football and you eat nothing,” tweeted Micho.
When contacted on phone to give more light about the issue, Micho said he needs Uganda to show him some respect by paying his salary arrears.
“I am the first coach to qualify a team for AFCON without being paid for months. I am expecting that Uganda show me the respect I have shown to them,” Sredojevic said.
Having qualified for AFCON 2017 in Gabon, Micho seems to be a no nonsense man when it comes to claiming for what he deserves.
FUFA is yet to have a say on Micho’s claims and perhaps clear him.
Uganda qualified for the AFCON competition for the first time since 1978, and it should be noted it was Micho’s achievement since all his predecessors had failed to achieve it.
