Rwanda: Serbian Micho Named New National Coach

The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) has named Serbian Milutin Sredojeiv "Micho" as head coach of its national team.

The 42-year old Serb replaces Ghanaian Sellas Tetteh, who resigned from the post last September after a string of poor results in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

No details of Micho's appointment were stated by FERWAFA on their official website.

According to FERWAFA, he will be assisted by locals Jean Marie Ntagwabira and Eric Nshimiyimana with Ibrahim Mugisha serving as goalkeepers' trainer.

Micho's first assignment will be the 2014 FIFA World Cup preliminary qualifier against Eritrea next week in Asmara.

The Serbian is no stranger to African football having been working on the continent since 2001.

He has had stints with Villa SC (Uganda), Saint George (Ethiopia), Orlando Pirates (South Africa), Young Africans (Tanzania) and until recently Al Hilal (Sudan).
