Just In| Former Orlando Pirates Coach Has Been Found Guilty

Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic, a former Orlando Pirates and Zambian senior national team coach, was convicted guilty of sexual harassment accusations. 

After a 39-year-old lady accused him of sexual harassment during a Cosafa Cup event in Gqeberha in December last year, the Serbian coach has been in and out of court in Gqeberha. 

Sredojevic was condemned to three years in prison, with a five-year sentence suspended.

Anelisa Ngcakani of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in Gqeberha stated that the disgraced mentor had been found guilty. 

"Yes, I can confirm that he has been found guilty," she told the Siya crew, adding that she would release more information in a statement.

Milutin Sredojevi (born September 1, 1969), better known by his nickname Micho, is a Serbian football manager who is now the head coach of Uganda's national team. On July 27, 2021, he was appointed and signed a three-year contract.

Sredojevi played for Svoboda Ljubljana, Sineli Belgrade, Grafiar Belgrade, FK Zorka Subotica, and FK Pionir Subotica in the past. He started out as a defensive midfielder, but his career was cut short due to a chronic knee ailment, so he switched to coaching to stay in the game.

Micho was still in his early thirties when he embarked on his African adventure, which began with Kampala's Villa SC, when he was recruited from a European competition by famed journalist John Kevin Aliro of Radio France International. Micho led Villa SC to three consecutive league wins (2001–2002, 2002–2003, and 2003–2004), but the 2002–03 season will go down in Ugandan football history as the most memorable, as Villa won the league title with only one loss in 28 games, as well as the Uganda Cup (Kakungulu winners) Villa SC is a soccer club based in Villa

Following his resignation from the Uganda Cranes, Orlando Pirates FC officially announced coach Sredojevi's return to the South African top-flight football club on Thursday, August 3, 2017. Sredojevi took over for Kjell Jonevret, who resigned on August 2, 2017. 

Sredojevi was named head coach of Zambia's national team on February 3, 2020, after signing a two-year deal. 

The Football Association of Zambia stated on July 17, 2021, that Sredojevi has resigned by mutual accord.

He was named the new Head Coach of the Uganda National Team on July 27, 2021, and he signed a three-year contract.
