Micho Set To Return To Orlando Pirates In South Africa

Milutin Micho Sredojevich is set for a dramatic return to Orlando Pirates and could be unveiled as early as next week as the club’s new coach.

The Serbian-born coach had a brief previous stint in charge of the Buccaneers more than a decade ago and is to return in place of Kjell Jonevret‚ whose arrival in February promised a revival in the club fortunes but has not delivered.

Sredojevich‚ who turns 48 in September‚ was a relative rookie when he was in charge of Pirates for seven months from July 2006 to January 2007 but returns with a vastly enhanced reputation.

His role in qualifying Uganda for this year’s African Nations Cup finals in Gabon ended a wait of almost 40 years for the Cranes to return to the African stage and earned Micho an exulted status in that country.

Micho is expected to sign the contract by Saturday before he begins conducting pre-season training next week.

Micho will replace Swedish born coach Kjell Jonevret who could face the axe five months after Orlando Pirates hired him.

Micho won’t be new at Orlando Pirates. He led the team to the CAF Champions League semi-finals in 2006.

The coach took over Uganda Cranes’ top role in 2013. He will be remembered for making Uganda qualify for the 2014 and 2016 Africa Nations Championship; 2017 Afcon as well as winning the 2015 regional Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.
