FUFA has appointed Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba as interim coaches for the Uganda Cranes.
This follows the termination of the employment contract by former coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Srerodjevic who cited non-payment of salaries to the tune of $54,000 (Sh195m).
The move was confirmed by a visibly furious FUFA president, Moses Magogo at a press conference in Mengo.
“I was pivotal in the recruitment of coach Micho. He is a good coach and we have a lost a good coach. On record, he remains one of the least paid coaches on the African continent. As a team, we have lost a star player but the team has to continue,” Magogo stated.
Basena and Kajoba start immediate business with the back to back CHAN 2018 qualifier matches against Rwanda in August followed by a double header against Egypt in the World Cup qualifiers.
He hinted on the proposal of doubling Micho’s salary which he (the coach) rejected.
Magogo stated that coach Micho might have got a good offer from other clients than the one FUFA was presenting.
The Uganda FA boss also hinted on the inherited debt carried forward by the time he took over presidency.
He also pledged to pay the outstanding debt ($54,000) owed to Micho given the systematic cash flow they had agreed on with the Serbian in an earlier meeting.
