Serbian coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has returned as the coach of South African club Orlando Pirates.
Pirates Chiefs broke the news less than a week after he terminated his contract as Uganda coach over unpaid wages.
He has been welcomed back to the club by chairman Irvin Khoza.
“When he left, he left graciously. Now, he comes back with a great record and experiences throughout the continent,” he said at Sredojevic’s unveiling.
“We also welcome back Milutin Sredejovic, coach Micho. A man who’s integrity I respect”
The 47-year-old Sredojevic, who lead to Uganda to the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 1978, spent eight months in charge of Pirates from June 2006.
Jonevret was named Pirates coach on February 20, and lasted just 18 official matches, winning six, drawing seven and losing five.
Four of those victories came en route to the Nedbank Cup final, but the Buccaneers were hammered 4-1 by SuperSport in the decider at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Sredojevic, who coached Pirates during the 2006/07 season, become Bucs’ seventh head coach since 2014.
Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza announced Sredojevic’s return to Pirates in a press conference on Thursday.
“We also welcome back Milutin Sredejovic, coach Micho. A man who’s integrity I respect,” said Khoza.
“When he left, he left graciously. Now, he comes back with a great record and experiences throughout the continent.
“We will also announce his technical support staff after further discussions.”
Meanwhile, Khoza has also revealed that the club will be making announcements regarding player movements.
“We are hoping to finalize one or two signings before the start of the season in key positions
Jonevret only took over the struggling side in February and was unable to change their fortunes as they finished 11th in the Premier Soccer League.
“I’d like to thank the Club for the opportunity. It didn’t work out as planned. I wish the Club & its supporters all the best,” the 54-year-old posted on social media.
