Obren Saric Joins Race For Uganda Cranes Job

Montenegro coach Obren Saric is one of the coaches that FUFA is looking at to become the new coach of the Uganda Cranes, The-SportsNation can exclusively report.

Saric, 47, wrote to the Federation last week and expressed his interest in the vacant Cranes job.

The UEFA Pro License coach has plenty of experience especially with Youth development.

He handled the Under-15 and Under-17 national teams of Montenegro.

The tactician has also had stints wih Mornar Bar FC and OFK Peteovac in Montenegro.

He was a midfielder during his playing days at Buducnost Podgorica, Petrovac, Mladost among other teams.

Obren Saric targets Uganda Cranes job

He will face competition from Serbian coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovich who is also reportedly being considered by FUFA.

Former Ivory Coast Coach Ibrahim Kamara is also on the list of tacticians targeting the Uganda Cranes job.

The job of Uganda Cranes coach has been taken by foreign based tacticians in recent memory, a list that include Pedro Pasculli (Argentina), Mohammed Abbas (Egypt), Laszlo Csaba (Hungary) and Bobby Williamson (Scotland) among others.

The Cranes job is vacant since the Federation parted ways with Northern Irishman Johnathan Mckinstry in April this year.

The team has since been under the stewardship of Abdallah Mubiru and Livingston Mbabazi as FUFA contemplates on naming a new coach.

The Federation is racing against time to have a new coach in place before the start of the World Cup Qualifiers later in September.
