FormerUganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic was o Thursday officially unveiled by Orlando Pirates as their new head coach.

The appointment of Micho follows the departure of compatriot Kjell Jonevret who threw in the towel on Wednesday after a spell of 7 months in charge of the Pirates.

The 47-year-old was revealed to the media on Thursday following heavy links with the club having terminated his contract with FUFA citing non payment of salaries to the tune of $54,000.

This will be Micho’s second stint at Pirates after his appointment on 14th June 2006 replacing Kosta Papic then. The Serbian guided Pirates to the semi-finals of the African Champions League in 2006.

He was in charge for 217 days before he parted ways with the club on Tuesday 16th January 2007.
