Under pressure Amavubi Stars head coach Milutin Sredojovic Micho says that he will not resign because he still has an unfinished business with the team.

Micho took over from Ghanaian flop Sellas Tetteh in October 2011 after edging out the likes of Stephen Keshi (Super Eagles head coach) and former coach Ratomir Djukovic to the post.

However, despite having a relatively decent start; things have not been all well for the Serb tactician and his team hence the calls from some quarters in the local media and the fans for him to step aside.

 “I cannot resign because I still have work to do, and I have done my best to help this team grow. I have used the available resources and players and I believe I am doing a good job under the circumstances. I want to achieve something special with Rwanda,” Micho told Times Sport recently.

The former SC Villa coach added, “I have done all I can to help the national team, I cannot resign because of the people who are talking. I am fine with the way I work, I am trying to help this team grow into a consistent good team.”

“Rwanda is one of the countries I have worked in and loved and, for as long as am still in charge, I will always do my best. I will continue to do my job,” he continued.

Micho also says he wants to keep the current Amavubi team together for as long as possible in a bid to make them understand each other and gel as a solid unit.

Micho’s current contract runs out in October this year but with Rwanda languishing at the bottom of their group for the 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, it’s highly unlikely that he will be given a new deal.

Amavubi have played three, lost two and drawn in Group H, which is led by Algeria, who are level on six points with Mali but with a better goal difference. Benin is third with four points.
