Former Orlando Pirates and Zambia coach Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic issued an apology as he was unveiled as Uganda's new manager on Tuesday.
The Serbian tactician returns to Uganda for a second spell after parting ways with Zambia last month following the side's failure to progress beyond the group stage of the COSAFA Cup last month.
Sredojevic was officially unveiled on Tuesday at the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) headquarters in Mengo, and also took the time to apologise for a previous "negative" issue.
"It is an emotional time to return to Uganda. Greetings to every single Ugandan with a highest degree of respect," Micho said, as per the FUFA's official website.
"Whatever negative, I would like to apologise – I was at crossroads; one of wounded soul and economic value.
"I was born in Serbia but football-wise born in Uganda. I was part of the football revolution since my earlier times."
Sredojevic's first task will be the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Kenya and Mali in September.
