According to reports coming out of Uganda, Cranes coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, is in line to take over as head coach of South Africa.
The former Orlando Pirates boss has had some impressive results as head coach of the Ugandan national team, guiding them to their first Africa Cup of Nations finals since 1978.
However, with Shakes Mashaba’s future being uncertain after having been suspended by SAFA over the weekend, rumours are now circulating that Micho is due to take over if he leaves the post in the coming weeks.
The Ugandan Radio Network is reporting that ‘Sredojevic and the South African FA President, Danny Jordaan, have already spoken’ and that they have ‘agreed that he takes over after leading Uganda at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations’.
Meanwhile, Micho took to Twitter last night to post a cryptic tweet that could be read as a goodbye to Uganda, a team with which he has had issues with in the past due to late payments.
The Siya crew will look further into the matter to see if Micho is indeed on the verge of taking over the top job in Mzansi football.
