Uganda Cranes skipper and custodian Denis Masinde Onyango has come out to respond to former Uganda Cranes coach Micho Sredejovic over the furious letter to current Uganda Cranes head Sebastien Desabre that made rounds all over social platforms in Uganda.
Micho’s full letter
I challenge all of you there in Uganda before that your coach Desabre stop abusing me by promising good football, playing style and philosophy to Ugandans yet that was empty promise that is impossible to put in reality except via dreams of easy to be fooled Ugandans that have unfortunately lost touch with their own football reality. Please let your coach try to win 9 away competitive matches in Africa like I did in my spell or at least let him make result against teams that will represent Africa on World cup. We beat Nigeria 0-1 in Nigeria, we drew Senegal 0-0 in Senegal Both of those teams are going to World cup and Uganda is not going because I am not there to take you to World cup as you refused to go there forcing me to go. Now they are losing to Central Africa and Niger countries that can’t clean shoes to Nigeria and Senegal. Anyhow I will still 200 percent support FUFA, coach and especially players to move on highway to Afcon 2019. we have opened by winning 0-1 In Cape Verde meaning that qualification where 2 teams from group goes is so obvious.. Wishing you all the best. Respectfully yours coach Micho supporter of Uganda Cranes.
Micho Sredojevic – Orlando Pirates Manager/Fmr. Uganda Cranes head coach
I don’t know what is really wrong with the two coaches but coach Micho should let go and move on because it’s now coach Desabre’s time.
Onyango said while on the Press Box sports show on NTV, Uganda.
As Uganda Cranes, we are facing tough times and so is the coach Sebastien Desabre but no success comes in one day so we just have to keep training hard according to the coach’s system as well as being there for him. I believe he (Desabre) just needs time and everything will be alright.
Sebastien Desabre who replaced Micho as the official Uganda Cranes head coach six months back has only managed one win against a low sounding nation in Sao Tome and Principle out of the nine matches he has played.
Uganda Cranes lost their last two recent build up matches against Central African Republic and Niger which results piled more pressure on the French tactician.
