Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been officially unveiled by South Africa Premier Soccer League side Orlando Pirates as their new head coach.

This follows the departure of compatriot Kjell Jonevret who threw in the towel on Wednesday after a spell of 7 months at helm.

The 47 year old has been revealed to the media on Thursday following heavy links with the club.

Micho who terminated his employment contract with Uganda football governing body  FUFA quit his position at the helm of the Uganda Cranes after citing non payment of salaries to the tune of $54,000.

He had since been subject of speculation amid saying his goodbyes to former partners Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba who were appointed interim coaches for the national football team on Monday.

This will be Micho’s second stint at Pirates after his appointment on 14th June 2006 replacing Kosta Papic then. The Serbian guided Pirates to the semi-finals of the African Champions League in 2006.

He was in charge for 217 days before he parted ways with the club on Tuesday 16th January 2007.
