The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has today sacked all head coaches of its national teams except the senior team, The Cranes.
“All positions of the ten Football National Teams are vacant with the exception of the Uganda Cranes positions. For the Senior National team, assessment will be done after the AFCON 2023 qualifying campaign,” Moses Magogo, President of FUFA, announced in a press briefing at FUFA House today.
There have been calls in the media for coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic to be relieved of his job because Cranes have struggled in their qualifying group, but FUFA said they cannot make decisions out of emotion. Micho’s side, under a lot of pressure, secured some breathing space by snatching a 1-0 win away in Tanzania on Tuesday.
“The team may not be registering good results in the eyes of very many people, including myself and other well-intentioned Ugandans but we cannot be making critical decisions based on emotions. We will analyze the performance of the technical team after the AFCON2023, ” said a defiant Mogogo.
National teams coaching positions are now vacant for the Kobs (Boys U23), Men’s U20 (Hippos), U17 (Cubs), U15 (Rhinos) – Women’s Team (Crested Cranes), U20 (Queen Cranes), U17 (Teen Cranes) – Men’s Beach Soccer and Futsal team.
