Micho faces former employers Rwanda

The Serbian was sacked by the Rwandan federation over poor results in April. He took over as Cranes coach a month later.
Cranes coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic is set to be on the opposing side of former employers Rwanda.
Micho will lead the Cranes as they take on the Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars in an international friendly at Namboole on November 15. The game, according to Fufa spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa, is to help the Cranes prepare for the Cecafa and Chan tournaments. Mulindwa said the game will give Micho a chance to try out players featuring in the domestic league, who will form the bulk of the squad for the upcoming tournaments.
Cecafa is due December in Kenya while Chan gets underway January 2014 in South Africa.
Micho was in charge of the Amavubi Stars between 2011 and April 2013 when he was sacked by the Rwandan federation over what they called poor results. He was appointed Cranes coach a month later. The 44-year-old Sebian has presided over 10 games since taking charge, winning five and losing the other five.
Micho was unavailable for comment yesterday about the prospect of facing his former employers although Mulindwa moved to play down the significance of the coach coming up against Rwanda.
“I am sure the coach (Micho) will take it like every other game. Besides it is just a build-up to help fine tune the players ahead of those tournaments.”
Mulindwa also revealed the game will, unlike most, be played at 6.00pm to allow as many fans as possible to watch the encounter.
