After nearly four years with the PSL giants, the 52-year-old Serbian strategist expresses his misgivings with the Buccaneers.
Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic, Uganda's coach, regrets not winning a trophy with Orlando Pirates in the Premier Soccer League.
The 52-year-old Serbian strategist had two stints with the Buccaneers, the first in 2006 when he replaced Kosta Papic, who had quit and joined Maritzburg United.
He worked for 217 days and only had limited success in continental tournaments, bringing Pirates to the Caf Champions League semi-finals in 2006 before resigning on January 16, 2007, to join Tanzanian club Yanga SC.
His second term began in 2017, when Pirates announced his return following his departure from the Uganda national team, where he replaced the resigned Kjell Jonevret.
Sredojevic guided Pirates to a second-place finish on the log and qualified the team for the Champions League in his first season back in the PSL.
He coached the Pirates for 80 games in all competitions, winning 38, drawing 26, and losing 16, he resigned on August 16, 2019, without winning a trophy.
Sredojevic, who is now in charge of the Cranes once more, has stated that his major regret during his tenure with the squad was the lack of silverware.
It was God's will. "Look, everything was God's will," he said on PSL Now, according to idiskitimes.
The thinker of fate is at work, and whatever has happened, I'd want to suggest that if I could go back in time, maybe we might do something different to win a trophy with the Orlando Pirates.
However, I'm glad the team has rebounded after such a long time; they won MTN8 last year, and I wish them all the best.
Sredojevic also took the opportunity to thank the Buccaneers and the South African football community for their support while he was in the nation.
I've always adored you.
"Also, to the South African football fraternity, I'd want to say I'm away from you," Sredojevic continued, "but I have a feeling I have not only trained your players but also been friends with your football administrators or the football fraternity fans.
“Whatsoever I have really day by day, 1000 days I have spent in first and second stints, I have not just coached and worked with you, I have really loved you and I still love you, wishing you sincerely all the best wherever you are in whatever you do.
