The Head Coach of Uganda\'s national football teams, Milutin ‘Micho\' Sredojevic has had his contract extended for another three years.

The news comes amid reports that a top Sudan Premier League side, Al Hilal had appointed Sredojevic as their new Head Coach, a claim that was refuted by the Uganda Football Association and is now cemented by the contract extension.

Sredojevic who took over from sacked Bobby Williamson in April 2013 initially signed a two year contract which had less than 50 days to run out.  He guided Uganda to the 2014 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa and came close to qualification for the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

After the U-23\'s team elimination by Mozambique in the All Africa Games qualifier last weekend, Sredojevic will now have to concentrate on preparing the junior team for the Olympics games qualifier and the senior team for the World Cup and Afcon qualifiers which start later in June and October respectively.

The Serbian was elusive when contacted by Uganda Radio Network on news of a new contract, but said he is still in Uganda for some time. He however told URN on Monday that he was excited that Al Hilal has been very interested in re-signing him after he left some years ago.

The 45-year old Serbian Coach first came to Africa in 2001 where he handled SC Villa before moving to Orlando Pirates (South Africa), St George (Ethiopia), Young Africans (Tanzania) and Al Hilal (Sudan) before he took over the Rwanda national team for two years and later moved to handle the Uganda Cranes.
