Orlando Pirates Football Club have announced the appointment of Serbian Milutin Sredejovic as the new coach.
The 47-year old takes over with immediate effect after Kjell Jonevret has tendered his resignation on Wednesday.
‘Micho’, as he is affectionately known, returns to the Bucs stable after joining as a 37-year old in 2008, where he led the squad to a CAF Champions League semi-final berth. Since leaving the club, Micho has gone on to establish himself on the African continent for both club and country.
Micho recently led the Ugandan national team to their first African Cup of Nations participation in 38 years. He resigned his post there last weekend.
The newly appointed coach is due to meet with the chairman later to discuss matters around the squad and his support staff. – African News Agency (ANA)
