Former Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic has denied a report in the Sunday World newspaper that a case of “indecent exposure” opened by a hotel cleaner some 10 days ago forced him to resign on Friday.
The Serbian quit his job as Pirates coach unexpectedly, citing personal reasons and immediately flying out to his native country to be with his gravely ill mother.

But the paper today reported that Sredojevic faces charges after asking a 51-year-old woman to have sex with him.
Contacted by the Siya crew for comment, the coach vehemently denied the allegations.
“This is a shame. My lawyers will be dealing with this. I have been the most respectful person, soldier and servant of the game. I don’t deserve this. It is baseless and unfair,” Sredojevic, who said he was with his mother at the time, explained.
He has already been linked with a new job – as coach of Egyptian giants Zamalek and is understood to have also received an offer from Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca as well.
“I am still in pain and with my bedridden mother. I am lucky I am out of the country, this is an unbelievable set up to chase me out. I don’t know who she is,” Sredojevic added.
Attempts to get comment from Pirates proved futile as club administrator Floyd Mbele’s phone rang unanswered and he did not reply to text messages.
