As confirmed by the NPA, the incident took place at Wolfson Stadium and it is alleged that the mentor's interaction with a woman delivering coffee to Sredojevic and others who were watching the match from the stands, included an innuendo of a sexual nature.  

The lady was said to have complained to her boss who allegedly warned the coach to refrain from his actions.

The NPA has since issued a statement which reads as follows: 

Former Zambian national football coach found guilty of sexual assault 

Earlier this morning, the Port Elizabeth Regional Court found former Zambian national football team coach, Milutin Sredojević (51) guilty of two counts of sexual assault.  

For count one, he was sentenced to three years imprisonment which was wholly suspended for five years on condition that he does not again contravene section 5(2) of the Sexual offenses Act. This section entails sexual assault in the form of inspiring a belief unto the complainant that he or she will immediately be sexually assaulted.  

For count two, Sredojević was also sentenced to three years imprisonment which was wholly suspended for five years on condition that he does not again contravene section 5(1) of the Sexual Offences Act. This section entails sexual assault in the form of touching a complainant. 

He brought an application for leave to appeal against the conviction. The court granted his application.  

On 07 December 2020 during the Cosafa Games in Gqeberha, a 39-year-old woman was delivering coffee at the Wolfson Stadium when she asked Sredojević if he would need sugar with his coffee. He said no and added that he needed another type of sugar, pointing at her private parts. 

She complained about his conduct to her boss who in turn warned Sredojević not to do it again. 

Later on that day, the lady again went to deliver coffee at the same stadium and this time Sredojević touched her in an inappropriate manner.
