Former Uganda coach Micho Sredojevic believes his successor Sebastien Desabre will do a good job with the Cranes.

The Serbian quit the Cranes last August to take over at Orlando Pirates in South Africa, with Frenchman Desabre succeeding him a little later.

Micho spoke out on his successor in an interview carried by the Daily Monitor this week and believes Desabre is in good stead to succeed.

“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,” said Micho.

“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 best.”

The Serbian, Micho, however, reminded Desabre that he was not starting from the scratch.

“With due respect to my colleague,” added Micho, “I believe he 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 believe that we have done some good job in between that you are having a recognized man (Micho) that is feared and respected playing against any team on the continent.”

Micho will be forever remembered for guiding Uganda to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, the first time the East Africans were achieving the feat it in four decades.
