Musician Derrick Ddungu alias Rickman Manrick has backed his father Patrick Kabuye for the Uganda Cranes head coach job after the position was left vacant, as Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic parted ways with FUFA.
The latter had been in the role in his second stint for the past two years, but with a year to go, his contract was mutually terminated.
And, Rickman feels his 'UEFA A licenced' father is a worthy replacement for the hot-seat.
"Coach Kabuye would make a good Uganda Cranes coach indeed. Overly qualified football genius. I hope FUFA does the needful," Rickman tweeted.
It should be noted that Kabuye is a hugely qualified 'UEFA A' licensed coach, who studied his coaching badges in Germany.

She further defended her choice and recommendation, as some responses accused her of supporting Kabuye solely because he is Rickman's father.
Kabuye also holds a United States Soccer Federation Level A coaching license among several other coaching qualifications.

As such, a section of fans fear Micho could return to the country for yet another round.
A number of football enthusiasts have fronted other local names, including Mike Mutebi, Sam Ssimbwa, Abdallah Mubiru and many more.
Micho's departure followed Uganda Cranes' failure to qualify for the Cote D'Ivoire 2023 Africa Cup of Nations last week.

In his role as the Uganda Cranes captain, Dennis Onyango, alongside former head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic, led Uganda to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
