Serbian Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been reappointed as Uganda head coach on a three-year deal barely a fortnight after he parted company with the Football Association of Zambia.

The Serbian, who departed Zambia on July 17 following seventeen months, will take Uganda post from August 1st.

His immediate task is to oversee the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifying matches set for September. Uganda is in Group E alongside neighbours Kenya, Rwanda and Mali.

A statement by the Ugandan FA reads: “FUFA names Milutin Sredojević the new Head coach of Uganda Cranes, on a three-year renewable contract effective August 1, 2021.”

“The Head coach has a contractual mandate to name his backroom staff.”
