Former Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic has backed the new Cranes boss Sebastien Desabre for a challenging job in the East African country.
‘Micho’ left the Cranes for Orlando Pirates in the South African Premier Soccer League last August and has admitted to not knowing his successor Desabre beyond the realms of the profession.
This comes after the French manager was appointed in December last year to succeed the Serbian boss, who wished the Frenchman and the Cranes all the best.
“With due respect to my colleague,” said Micho to the Daily Monitor.
“I believe he (Desabre) got a good product that is much better than the product that was rock bottom in the World Cup qualifiers in 2013 when I took over.
“I just wish the federation gives you the best possible support, that supporters give you the best possible support, that all the coaches in Uganda – technical people give you necessary support, that players are doing their the best.
“I have no doubt that you as a person that is coming from the French football school with talented players, you will do a good job.
“As your colleague, and a supporter, this time, of Uganda Cranes, I wish you all the best. May the Almighty God bless you, for God and my Country.”
Uganda will play the Malawi on March 17 in Kampala as they prepare for the 2019 CAF African Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
