Micho lied to Pirates before quitting

After his shock resignation from Orlando Pirates was confirmed on Friday evening, Sredojević was confirmed as the new head coach of the Egyptian giants hours later by president Mortada Mansour.

However, the Serbian only officially signed his one-year contract with the White Knights on Tuesday morning at the club’s head quarters.

Ex-Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic appears to have misled the Soweto club about the reasons for his resignation, but no legal action will be taken after he joined Egyptain giants Zamalek SC.

Bucs administrator Floyd Mbele reiterated yesterday that the club was under the impression that the coach was leaving for matters of a personal nature.

“Micho came in and told us his reasons and we took them for what they were. We have to move on. It doesn’t help speculating about the reasons,” Mbele told Sowetan.

“It’s not going to change anything. Micho is no longer coach of Orlando Pirates. [He’s] got nothing to do with Pirates anymore. The fact is, he came to say he’s resigning for personal reasons, anything else is not important to us.”

Pirates could have legally taken Sredojevic to task if he indeed misrepresented his reasons for leaving as he had a contract with them.
