Micho posted this on his Twitter,
“Termination of the contract happened last night. I have not cheated, I have not stolen, but I have come here to clear the air, ” he said.
According to reports, FUFA hasn’t settled Micho’s pending arrears and that’s also one of the reasons he is leaving the national team.
He concluded the press conference with a prayer and are dramatic statement, “It is not easy to be coach of Uganda. My agent and I had seven days of talks with FUFA but all yielded nothing,” Micho said.
“I have not been allowed to take Uganda to the World Cup. They succeeded to remove me.”
It’s really sad that our own football governing body couldn’t solve such a problem and now Uganda has lost a good coach. We wish him the best wherever he goes.
