‘Pirates Should Do To Micho What They Did With Ruud Krol’

Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic should carry on as the head coach of Orlando Pirates for a third successive season, despite not having won a trophy yet for the club, according to former defender Lucas Tlhomelang.

Sredojevic and his technical team guided the team to a second place finish in the 2018/19 Absa Premiership season with 57 points from their 30 matches.

With Sredojevic having finished his second season as head coach in his second stint with the side, Tlhomelang’s advice to the Buccaneers is to retain the Serbian mentor for his third season. 

“According to me, the chairman should do to Micho what he did with Ruud Krol. For his two first two seasons with Pirates, Krol didn’t do well, but it was in his third season with the club that he did well and won a treble. All I am saying is that Micho should be given another chance. He deserves another chance because the players understand him well now as he has been with the team for two seasons in a row,” said Tlhomelang.
