Orlando Pirates have made the shock announcement that their coach, Milutin Sredojevic, has resigned with immediate effect.
The Buccaneers made the news public on their social media channels, as well as their website, after 10pm on Friday night.
Serbian mentor Sredojevic has stepped down for personal reasons, Pirates said.
“Milutin Sredojevic relinquishes his position as Head Coach of Orlando Pirates Football Club after two seasons at the helm,” a club statement read.
“The Club would like to place on record that this decision was taken unilaterally, and it was the management’s decision to accept Mr Sredojevic to vacate his position based on reasons he has presented, which are of a personal nature.
