Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has attracted reported interest from Egyptian giants Zamalek.
The White Knights are in search of a replacement for Khaled Galal who was sacked after just four games in charge of the club.
Sredojevic, 49, took over the reins in Orlando two years ago after four years in charge of the Uganda Cranes.
The Serbian mentor, who guided the Buccaneers to a second-placed finish in the Absa Premiership last season, commented on his future to Pirates following the club’s 3-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic this past weekend.
“This is something on which I don’t want to comment, I will just say there is interest from many parts of the world but I am a soldier and servant of Orlando Pirates,” Micho is quoted as saying by KickOff.com.
“I am totally loyal to my African football father Dr Irvin Khoza, and if anyone has anything to do, his is the right address [to go to].
“Until I’m no longer needed here, I will serve loyally, and when the time comes [to leave] I will still remain a supporter, removing the jersey of the head coach and placing on the supporter’s jersey.
“Maybe you will see me on the opposite side [one day], but I will forever love and respect this great club that I’m honoured, pleased and privileged to coach,” he concluded.
