Uganda Cranes coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic has said he will not resign his position because he has not been paid salary for the last five months.

The Serbian born coach early this week blamed the Uganda FA for failing to pay his outstanding salary for five months. "Although I had decided to take legal action, I will now wait and see what the Federation will do," said Sredojevic.


He explained that although some people want him to resign because the FA has breached the contract they have with him, he will not throw in the towel. "I still have lots of things to achieve with the Ugandan team," he added.


On Sunday Sredojevic guided Uganda Cranes to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) championship after defeating Comoros 1-0 in a match played at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.


He also explained that the team will pitch camp in Togo ahead of their first game of the Group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.


"We have planned to play an international friendly game with Togo on October 4th before will take on the Black Stars of Ghana on October 7th," he explained.


"I have already started working and planning for the Ghana game and we shall have a camp in one of the West African countries and play one International friendly before the Ghana game," revealed Sredojevic.


Ghana who are chasing their fourth straight appearance at the World Cup were last weekend held to a draw 1-1 by Rwanda in a 2017 Afcon qualifier  played in Accra. Congo Brazzaville are the other team in Group E of the qualifiers.


Uganda is the only side from the Council for East and Central African Football Associations (Cecafa) region to have made it to this stage of the competition.


There are five groups of four teams with only the winners of each group making it to Russia in 2018.
