Their first task will be to try and get Uganda off to a decent start in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in September.

Micho termed his second home coming to Uganda as emotional, thanking the FUFA top brass for the presented opportunity.

“It is an emotional time to return to Uganda. Greetings to every single Ugandan with a highest degree of respect. I thank the previous coaches Sebastien Desabre, Mathias Lule, Johnathan McKinstry, Charles Livingstone Mbabazi and Abdallah Mubiru,” Micho said.

“I will give particular attention to details; build attack and consolidate on the solid defence. I want to pay back with fanatic hard work. I am here serve, deliver and give back to the people. I am working to see that Uganda is back in the top five of African football.”
