Sources within FUFA that prefers anonymity have intimated to this site that the Serbian tactician will make his resignation official on Tuesday during the routine FUFA press conference. It is organised that FUFA will use the occasion as a formal farewell to him as he is expected to leave the country on the same day.
According to our sources ‘Micho’ is going back to South Africa’s soccer giants Orlando Pirates which gave him a training deal better than Uganda’s

On his part however Micho said he is quitting due to unpaid salary totaling to over six months.
“I was here and worked for SC Villa, left demanding salary for over 10 months. Same thing is happening now, I have dedicated my life and sacrificed my family and time but in the end I’m not appreciated. I’m tired, let me go to a place where my energy and commitment will be rewarded,” Furious speaking Micho told CHIMPREPORTS.
