Local soccer governing body Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has claimed responsibility for the media outrage on why Uganda Cranes Head Coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sedrojevic had gone three-months without wages.
“True, the coach Micho’s salary is not updated, but we shall rectify that soon”, Rogers Mulindwa, the spokesperson of FUFA told reporters at the weekly press conference on Wednesday morning at Mengo.
The Uganda national coach says he has not been paid since June this year despite his coming close to qualifying the Cranes for the final play-off of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers though he qualified for the 2014 Africa Nations Championship(CHAN) in South African with a double over neighbours Tanzania.
The Serb, 40 in May was announced as new Cranes coach on a two-year renewable contract worth Shs.20.8 Million a month and is now owed Sh.60.1M by the FA who last paid him when Lawrence Mulindwa was FA President.
During Denis Obua’s helm at the top, FUFA’s insatiable knack for breaching contractual agreements it entered into with indigenous and foreign coaches was well documented but Mulindwa was a bit professional with his wage structure.
