Pirates were the first South African club to be crowned African champions, stunning ASEC Mimosas 1-0 in the Ivory Coast to win the 1995 African Cup of Champions Clubs.They came close to further CAF titles this decade, finishing runners-up in the 2013 Champions League and 2015 Confederation Cup, the second-tier competition.But the 2016-2017 domestic season was a disaster as the “Sea Robbers” ended a humiliating 11th in the 16-club Premiership and failed to win any of three cup competitions.Poor results have been blamed partly on “prima donnas” reportedly dominating the changeroom, reducing various coaches to helpless onlookers.A club insider told AFP this week that Jonevret was a good coach but lacked the man-management skills to rein in a group of big-headed players.Sredojevic came to Africa in 2001 and coached clubs in Uganda, Ethiopia, South Africa, Tanzania and Sudan and the national teams of Rwanda and Uganda.He ended a successful spell as coach of Uganda last weekend having failed to secure $64,000 (54,000 euros) in unpaid salaries.[View the story “Former Uganda Cranes coach Micho moves to Orlando Pirates” on Storify]Share on: WhatsApp Orlando Pirates chairman Khoza welcomes Micho.

I see huge room for improvement.“It is totally unacceptable that this great club has not being winning trophies. We must become a team of winners.”
