Micho Returns: How Does He Compare To Komphela, Hunt & Pitso?

Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic's win ratio compared to other PSL coaches

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 06, 2017 10:26 AM

Following Kjell Jonevret’s resignation from his role as Orlando Pirates’ head coach, we take a look at the man who is taking over the job, Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic.

Breaking: Orlando Pirates Name New Head Coach

The man, who resigned from his role as Uganda’s head coach at the end of July, spent seven months in charge of the Buccaneers between July 2006 and January 2007 as a relative rookie at the age of 37, with no experience in South African football. He now returns with a vastly improved reputation. His role in helping Uganda qualify for this year’s African Cup of Nations in Gabon ended almost 40 years of disappointment and earned Micho a glorified status in the country.

Looking back to his 12 league games in charge of the Buccaneers, the Serbian won just three of those games, which is a win ratio of just 25%, which will not excite fans of the club who remember that testing spell. However, he won 15 of his 29 games in charge of the Cranes, a win ratio of 51.7%, which indicates how much he’s grown as a manager in the last 11 years.

A club of Pirates’ stature, on the other hand, will be comparing him to other coaches in the PSL’s top teams, including Mamelodi Sundowns’ Pitso Mosimane, Bidvest Wits’ Gavin Hunt and Kaizer Chiefs’ Steve Komphela. The question, therefore, is how he compares to the PSL’s experienced campaigners.

Pitso Mosimane – 82 wins out of 139 league games - win ratio of 59%

 Gavin Hunt 66 wins out of 120 games - win ratio 55%

Steve Komphela’s - 24 wins out of 60 league games - win ratio of 40%

Breaking: Manyisa Joins Sundowns From Pirates

Micho would have to live up to very high expectations after taking over the role at Pirates, but can take comfort in the fact that his win ratio with Uganda shows that he has what it takes to bring a struggling team back to life and that he is no stranger to success, which is exactly what Pirates need, having last won silverware back in 2014.

Agreed to those disputing the name of Kompela with that of pitso and hunt, they should have mentioned Gordon instead cos Kompela has not achieve anything yet in his career except being coach of Kaizer chiefs where he is failing decimally. Let us not praise mediocrity or favor by association but praise where due and as for Micho will see what he is all about once we are halfway the lig for now no comment but good wishes for him.

To mention Kompela's name among Pitso and Gavin it's it's like mixing a donkey among the horses and expect good relationship

Did you really have to mention kompela in the same category as Hunt and Pitso? What does he really have to show for his coaching career?

Editor you seem clueless about the coach you wrote about,don't compare Micho to Khompela because this is how his career has been since he left Orlando Pirates. MICHO'S PROFILE After amicably parting ways with Pirates, Sredojevic had a short stint with Tanzanian giants Young Africans SC in 2007, before rejoining Saint George in the same year. He managed to resurrect his career at the Ethiopian giants - winning two consecutive league titles with the club between 2008 and 2010. The journeyman then left the club for Sudanese side Al-Hilal Omdurman in July, 2010. Once again Micho proved his coaching credentials as he clinched two Sudanese Premier League titles with the club. He also guided Al Hilal to the semi-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup in 2010 and the 2011 CAF Champions League last four. Sredojevic was approached by the Rwandan Association Football Federation (Ferwafa) due to his success with Al Hilal and he was appointed Amavubi head coach towards the end of 2011. He led Rwanda to the second round of the 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, before parting ways with Ferwafa in 2013. Micho landed another national team coaching job in the same year as he was appointed Uganda head coach. The Serbian built a strong Cranes team that managed to reach the 2014 African Nations Championship (Chan) finals which were hosted by South Africa. Furthermore, Sredojević remarkably led Uganda to the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals for the first time in almost 40 years - a barren run stretching back to 1978. He also guided the Cranes to the 2016 Chan finals, before quitting in July, 2017.Soon after terminating his contract with the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) in a row over unpaid salary allowances totalling $64 000 (R860,000), Sredojevic was a wanted man across the African continent as he revealed that he had nine offers from national teams and clubs. The well-travelled tactician opted for a return to Pirates and he disclosed that he got a call that was hard to resist from Bucs chairman Dr Irvin Khoza, who he referred to as his footballing father. Micho reportedly rejected lucrative offers from Egyptian giants Zamalek and Libyan Football Federation (LFA).
