Uganda Cranes Head Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been listed among the highest-paid National Team coaches in Africa, he is said to be pocketing $24000 (over UGx 85Million) per month according to research conducted by Ghanian football expert Nuhu Adams.
Coach Micho is ranked 12th ever since the Serbian football expert returned as the new Uganda Cranes Head coach effective August 2021.
This was after the local football governing Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) offered a much-improved offer. In his first stint as Cranes Head Coach, Micho was reported to be earning Shs1.2 million a month plus other allowances.
He however bitterly resigned from the job after the 2017 Afcon finals in Gabon where he led Uganda to its first continental showpiece in 38 years. His reason for the resignation was purely about non-payment of salary dues worth Shs194m.
After a few months, FUFA confirmed to have cleared the arrears. Micho then got a lucrative offer as Head Coach of South African side Orlando Pirates.
Micho returned to the Cranes this year after parting ways with Zambia Chipolopolo where he was pocketing a cool $25,000 a month.
