Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been convicted on two counts of sexual assault in the Gqeberha Regional Court. Formerly of Orlando Pirates, Zambia, and current Uganda Coach, Micho was convicted and handed a suspended jail term in the Gqeberha Regional Court on Tuesday.
Micho was sentenced to three years imprisonment, suspended for five years for the incident that happened in December 2020. Court in Zambia ruled in favor of the complainant. They found Micho guilty of misusing his fingers, making unwanted advances and physical contact with a Barista in the VIP section of the Wolfson Stadium.
The Serbian coach, then in charge of the Zambia national football team, was accused by a 39-year-old woman of touching her buttocks and making inappropriate sexual remarks towards her at Wolfson Stadium.
FUFA’s not-so-official statement on the matter left many Ugandans IN agape, wondering what tribe Micho’s and his Mengo bosses’ relationship could be! The `statement` read thus; “The Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Sredojevic asked FUFA for permission to attend to a private matter in South Africa. We have this afternoon received information that the private matter has been concluded for now.”
The same concluded by telling local (Uganda) football lovers how the coach will come back and resume his duties as expected. “The coach will come back to resume his duties accordingly”
