FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa has ruled out the possibility of an African taking up the Cranes coaching job.
He says their immediate target is a European most likely from Germany.
â€œNo African,â€ Mulindwa stated on Friday.
The revelations will be a major set-back for former Nigerian head coach Christian Chukwu who had shown interest in occupying the vacant Cranes seat.
Chukwu hoped to replace Cranesâ€™ run-away coach Laszlo Csaba, who vacated the position early this month to take over at Scottish outfit Hearts FC.
Soccer governing body FUFA, who begun their relentless search for a new manager a fortnight ago, have since received over 20 applications for the job.
â€œHe (the coach) has to come from Europe,â€ he added.
FUFAâ€™s technical committee divulged recently that two Ugandans had also applied for the job.
