Fans demand FUFA Must Pay Micho

By Serestino Tusingwire

Uganda Cranes fans have bitterly reacted over FUFA’s failure to pay salary arrears of their darling coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, want the issue sorted out ASAP.

This comes after Coach Micho reacted on twitter over the unpaid salary for over five months.

It has been revealed that FUFA owes Micho over Shs235millions in total.

In his tweet yesterday, Micho expressed his anger when he described Uganda as 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.

It was not until his late evening tweet when he vowed to drag FUFA to court over the same issue that fans started reacting about FUFA’s shameful actions.

They are expressing their anger twitter with a hashtag #PayMicho.

“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 in his yesterday’s evening tweet.

It should be noted that even the $10,000 that was promised to players after qualifying for AFCON is nowhere to be seen. It’s from this point fans started reacting over FUFA’s empty promises.
