Micho speaks out on Pirates exit


Milutin Sredojevic has spoken about former club Orlando Pirates for the first time since leaving to take over as coach of Zamalek.

'Micho' resigned from Pirates last week Friday and cited personal challenges as the main reason for his sudden departure.

The former Uganda national team coach was reported to be on his way to Serbia to visit his sick mother, only to resurface in Egypt a few days later to sign with Zamelek.

Sredojevic was more open about Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane's comments that he would miss his presence in the PSL.

"I got the message and was it very touching, having special value and specific value and specific weight when it comes from such a football gentleman and coaching legend like Pitso. We shall still keep the friendship and love of the game."
