Sredojevic talk won’t go away for Bucs after his resignation as Uganda coach


Is he in or isn't he?

The rumour mill continues to link former Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic with Orlando Pirates, though the Serbian refuses to confirm or deny it.

Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic continues to be linked with the Orlando Pirates head coach job, a position he held a decade ago.

There has been no official word however from Pirates on the matter, although current head coach Kjell Jonevret said over the weekend that he accepts that his position is often a short-lived one.

“I have worked in this business for a long time. I know how it is. Sometimes they have patience and other times they don’t. Orlando Pirates have had a lot of coaches in the last couple of years.

“I am 100 percent sure that we are going to have a better season. If that’s with me or they have found a dream coach somewhere that’s not up to me. I am pretty cool, and I am trying to do the best that I can every day,” he said after a lacklustre performance from Bucs saw them losing 0-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Cup.

Sredojevic, meanwhile, confirmed over the weekend that he quit his post as Uganda head coach, claiming he was not paid.

“Never rejected double salary offer but would be the biggest moron on this planet if I accepted the promise of double yet even single was never paid,” he stated on Twitter.

While there were reports on Monday afternoon that the Serbian had already landed in South Africa ahead of signing for Pirates, he issued the following post which appears to contradict that.

“Those spreading rumours about me already signing are wrong I still didn’t sign anything but ready to fly tonight (Monday) to a new destination to sign.”

The 47-year-old, who is also reportedly wanted by Egyptian giants Zamalek, has been active on social media yesterday morning, but is yet to reveal where his next destination will be.

Last season he led the Uganda Cranes to the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 38 years.
