Former Orlando Pirates coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, has won the Ethiopian Midroc league title with St George FC.
The Serbian coach who was in South Africa in April and rumoured to be linked to a coaching job at Bloemfontein Celtic guided his team to victory without a single loss.
Sredojevic, who also helped Orlando Pirates reach the semi-final stage of the CAF African Champions League helped his team pick up 19 wins, 5 draws and no losses.
He was also voted best coach of the season for the third time after guiding the same team to league success in 2004/2005 and 2005/2006 season.
“With pride and motivation for the future challenges, this is my third league trophy in Ethiopia, with three in Uganda with SC Villa, the regional Cecafa Championship with SC Villa and the CAF Champions League semi-final finish with Orlando Pirates, this is good reason for me to be proud,” Sredojevic told KickOff.com.
The 38-year old said he is looking forward to helping his team perform well in the CAF Champions League and also maintain their winning ways in Ethiopian football.
