Funding African Sports: Uganda Cranes Coach Micho Sredojevic Demands His Salary and Allowances

Last Sunday, the Uganda Cranes Head Coach, Micho Sredojevic lead his team to their first African Cup of Nations after almost four decades of bitter disappointment. While it’s a time for jubilation, all is not well in this proverbial paradise.

Early this month Sredojevic filed a case at the Federation International Football Association dispute resolution chamber in Zurich demanding that the Federation of Uganda Football Association clear his outstanding salary and other allowances.

Further, in a barrage of tweets this week, Sredojevic  has expressed his dissatisfaction with FUFA. First, he referred to the value he delivers on a per dollar investment.

Next, he pointed out the effect of corruption on the local football world.

Then, he resigned to threatening “swift legal action.”

FUFA had no choice but to respond and have released a statement admitting that they owe Sredojevic. But, the football governing body was not clear about how much they owe the coach. Apparently, he is owed approximately US$ 70,000.

When asked if he plans to continue working in the current state of affairs,  Sredojevic said: [perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“I’m a professional that has done half work qualifying, and full work will be in Gabon. If I stop working, I will be in breach of contract like Uganda is now. That is why legal action is taken.”[/perfectpullquote]
