FUFA officially confirmed Belgian tactician Paul Joseph Put as the next permanent Uganda Cranes head coach on Thursday.
The Federation appointed Put on two-year renewable contract and replaces Milutin Sredojevic alias Micho who was sacked in September this year.
Morley Byekwaso was in interim charge of the side last month during friendly games against Mali and Zambia.
Put spoke openly about his plan for the senior National side and his vision for the future.
