Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic’s employers have commented on his sentencing and how it affects his employment as the senior national team coach of Uganda.
On Tuesday, Sredojevic was handed two three-year jail sentences at the Gqeberha Regional Court on two counts of sexual assault, though both sentences were suspended for five years on condition that he does not again contravene sections 5(1) and 5(2) of the sexual offences Act.
The Wolf of Serbia, as the former Orlando Pirates coach sometimes calls himself, has since confirmed in a statement that he will appeal the court ruling.
Meanwhile, the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has confirmed that it is expecting Sredojevic back at work to continue with his duties as the head coach of The Cranes.
“The Uganda Cranes coach, Milutin Sredojevic asked FUFA for permission to attend to a private matter in South Africa,” FUFA confirmed in a statement.
“We have this afternoon received information that the private matter has been concluded for now. The coach will come back to resume his duties accordingly,” reads the statement.
