Former Uganda Cranes Coach Multin Sredjovic ‘Micho’ has paid tribute to Hassan Wasswa following the player’s bold decision to retire from international football.
During Micho’s tenure that ran from 2013-2017 as Cranes coach, Wasswa grew in stature as one of the Serbian’s trusted lieutenants and it is no surprise that during that spell Wasswa got the biggest chunk of his 75 national team caps.
Micho brought out the versatility in Wasswa when he at times played him as a makeshift central defender from his preferred central midfield position.
Surprisingly, Wasswa starred in every position with distinction.
Through his social media post, the current Zambia Chipolopolo coach wrote: “Wholeheartedly honoured & privileged to be blessed to coach UGANDAN special commando HASSAN WASSWA aka Big Hass. While u are hanging your boots as practical witness I respectfully appreciate each moment of your sacrifice for that holy jersey WEBALE NYO SSEBO.”
In a Saturday interview with KFM, Wasswa named the Serb as the best coach he has played under on the National team.
Micho’s eulogy comes after FUFA, through it’s boss Moses Magogo, revealed that they will organise a testimonial match for Wasswa for his devoted service.
