Fufa yesterday moved to deny reports that they cannot afford to pay wages of national team coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevich (pic left).
Speaking at the weekly press briefing in Mengo, Fufa spokesman Rogers Mulindwa admitted that they are yet to pay the Serbian’s outstanding wages.
‘’It is true his payments are not up-to-date. He is demanding one or two months but the situation is not alarming. We have been in a transitional process because of the change in leadership but everything is being sorted out.’’ When put to him that the federation could be in financial trouble, Mulindwa said, ‘‘If we were broke, we would not be advertising various positions at the federation because we’ll have to pay them in the end.’’ Micho, who has only been in charge of the team for five months, moved to play down suggestions that the wage issue would disrupt his plans ahead of Cecafa and Chan tournaments.
“It is true that I have not been paid but I am a professional who loves my job very much and I am very loyal. I am extremely focused and concentrating on the Cecafa and Chan.”
