Orlando Pirates could soon make the team’s first signing under their new head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

Sredojevic will be working on getting Pirates ready for the 2017/18 season, following his unveiling at the club on Thursday. Having previously worked as the Uganda national team head coach before joining Pirates, the Serbian mentor is expected to attempt to lure one of the top players from the East African country, with a view of bringing him to the Soweto giants.

The indication from sources close to the Bucs camp is that Ugandan centre back, Murushid Juuko, is expected to complete a switch to Pirates from Tanzanian club Simba SC. 

The 23-year-old defender has been identified as a transfer target for Bucs in line with the club’s plans to restructure the team’s defence for the new season.

In their disappointing 2016/17 season, the Buccaneers conceded a whopping 40 goals from their 30 Absa Premiership games as they finished the campaign with a -11 goal difference in 11th place on the log.

Sredojevic is known to be a fan of Juuko’s talents. Having worked with him in the Uganda national team, an indication from sources is that the coach is keen on working with the player again at his new club.

As reported by the Siya crew, Pirates are expected to part ways with Nigerian goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel. According to sources, the goalkeeper’s likely departure could take place as the club will be trying to open up space on their foreign quota for the new season.

We don't know anything about this player the coach wanted. What I like about him is this. He worked with the player before and it will be easy for the player also to adjust because he knows the coach. If the coach can find the best players from Uganda he must talk to the chairman. Issa Sarr can open another foreign spare provided the coach wanted someone better than him.
