EXCLUSIVE: Ghana World Cup group opponents Uganda set to name former Rwanda coach Michael Weiss as Micho’s replacement

Michael Weiß

With less than a week after the resignation of the Serbian trainer Milutin Micho Sredejovic over unpaid salaries and bonuses, the Ugandan Football Federation (FUFA) has already pen down Michael Weiss as the next coach of the Cranes.

GHANAsoccernet sources in Uganda say FUFA had already lined up the German coach as Micho’s successor after sensing that the Serbian could bid goodbye to the Cranes.

Insiders say despite FUFA President Moses Magogo’s unwillingness to hint who is to be named the next coach of the national team, Weib is in the front line as the next coach of Uganda.

FUFA President Moses Magogo on Monday revealed in a press conference that many coaches have already thrown in their applications for the job but declined to give hints of who is to land the job.

Even though FUFA has announced that Moses Basena, assistant coach during Micho’s reign and Fred Kajoba goalkeepers trainer have been named as the stop-gap coaches until September 5, it is likely Weib will take over before that period.

Weiss served internships with several football clubs around the globe such as Real MadridArsenalKaiserslautern, and River Plate, to name a few.

He has also worked at the Rwanda youth teams and served as the technical director of the Rwanda Football Association.

In January 2011, he took charge of the Philippines national football team and was shortlisted for the Amavubi coaching job in 2014.

In June 2014, he took the control of Romanian former champions Oțelul Galați and is currently the head coach of the Mongolia national team.

Ghana is in the same group with Uganda in the 2018 World Cup qualifier with the Cranes placed 2nd behind Egypt after two matches.
