Micho Not Pressing The Panic Button

Cranes coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic

MichoUganda head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has said he is not pressing the panic button after drawing with Rwanda in an international friendly last weekend.

“My team did not show lots of creativity and finishing. And those are the departments we need to work on now ahead of the 2013 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup to take place in Kenya,” Micho told sources on Monday morning.

The coach admitted that he was not very impressed by the general performance against Rwanda, but added that he is not very worried because he knows what to do to get the team to the best form possible.

The coach highlighted that some of his senior players like Emmanuel Okwi, Godfrey Walusimbi and Vincent Kayizzi, who have just returned to active football with local sides in the FUFA Super League, still need to work on their fitness levels and match practice.

“We shall be a different team when the CECAFA tournament starts on November 27,” said Micho.

The coach said he and the technical team will seek tactical solutions to the midfield problem since injured Dennis Iguma has been ruled out.

“We shall fix this problem in the shortest time possible because we are the defending champions and must go to the tournament and prove that we are a good team,” he added.

The Cranes who will be chasing a record 14th CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup title have this year been drawn against Rwanda, Sudan and Eritrea.

Apart from winning League titles with SC Villa (Uganda), Young Africans (Tanzania), St George (Ethiopia) and Al Hilal (Sudan), Micho will be out to try and capture the CECAFA trophy as well.

During the two years as Rwanda Coach, the Serb only managed to get the team to the runners-up position at the 2011 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup final in Tanzania where they lost to Uganda.
