Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Sredojević “Micho” yesterday early morning left Uganda and boarded an Ethiopian plane to Addis Ababa to join his family which had left few days back.
The Serbian will spend three days in the Ethiopian capital before flying to Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday.
With no official and clear communication from the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) about his departure, ChimpReports understands that the coach will be unveiled by Orlando Pirates on Monday, next week.
A source in South Africa revealed to ChimpReports that there has been dissatisfaction with the Pirates current coach Kjell Jonevret and the Soweto giants will now turn to their former coach Micho to regain their sports glory.
The source also confirmed that a 3 year deal had already been tabled to Micho worth $50000 annually.
However, Micho denied the rumors, claiming: “As agreed on constructive talks with FUFA, I got few days of deserved rest until issues are sorted. All other stories are mere speculations,” Micho posted on his official Twitter handle.
If appointed at Orlando Pirates, it will be his second spell at the club as the Serb was at the club in a short stint that lasted 217 days from June 14, 2006 when he replaced Kosta Papic to January 16, 2007, joining Young Africains club.
The Serbian will always be remembered in Uganda for guiding the Cranes back in the African Cup of Nations after a 39 year drought.
