Pirates confirm Sredejovic return

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that former Uganda coach Milutin Sredejovic will be at the helm of the club for the 2017-18 Absa Premiership season, following the resignation of Kjell Jonevret.

The Sea Robbers reunite with Sredejovic, who enjoyed a dismal 12-game stint with Pirates during 2006/07 PSL campaign.

Despite only lasting 217 days during his last stint at the Mayfair-based outfit, Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza revealed his delight at the capture of Sredejovic, saying that he is a lot better equipped for the job.

“There has been a lot of speculation around the announcement of the coach,” Khoza said during the unveiling.

“We welcome back Milutin Sredejovic, coach Micho. A man whose integrity I respect.

“When he left, he left graciously. Now, he comes back with a great record and experiences throughout the continent.

“We will announce his technical support staff after further discussions,” he added.

Khoza also made a shocking revelation when he confirmed the exit of midfielder Oupa Manyisa to Mamelodi Sundowns.
