Uganda coach critical of Nations Cup changes – Starr Fm

Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says Africa has bowed to ‘pressure from Europe’ following radical changes to the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Confederation of African Football confirmed last week that the tournament will be held in June and July instead of January and February. and will be expanded to 24 teams from 16.

Sredojevic – whose own future is currently the subject of speculation – was speaking a day after Uganda beat Sudan 5-1 in a 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier.
