Serbian Sredjovic 'Micho' at the South African club Orlando Pirates

South African club Orlando Pirates have today unveiled former Uganda Cranes Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic as their new head manager.

The Serbian coach replaces Kjell Jonevret who resigned yesterday after failing to turn fortunes around for the six months he had been managing the club.

This is Micho’s second stint at Orlando Pirates, having initially joined in 2006 where he handled 23 games before being shown the door.

He guided the club the 2006 Caf Champions League semifinals, but resigned on the back of a bad domestic record.

In Uganda Micho has been widely praised for making Uganda qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, the first time in 38 years.
