South African football club, Orlando Pirates has unveiled former Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic as the club’s new head coach.
The announcement was made at a press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday afternoon (August 3rd, 2017).
This comes barely a week after Micho resigned as Uganda Cranes coach over 6 months salary arrears.
This will be Micho’s second time to coach Orlando Pirates. He previously mentored the Buccaneers for seven months from July 2006 to January 2007.
“There has been a lot of speculations around the announcement of the coach. We welcome back Milutin Sredejovic Micho. A man who’s integrity I respect,” said Buccaneers chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza at the press conference
“When he left, he left graciously. Now, he comes back with a great record and experiences throughout the continent. We will also announce his technical support staff after further discussions,” he added.
Micho replaces Kjell Jonevret, who resigned as Orland Pirates head coach earlier this week.
