According to the reports, the Serbian-born coach has agreed to a three-year contract with the Buccaneers, and will be announced as Pirates coach after the Carling Cup.

The Carling Cup clash between Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Pirates is set to take place at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

As reported earlier, a Phakaaathi source in Uganda confirmed that Sredojevic left that country on Tuesday morning.

The source said Micho left for Addis Ababa, and is set to travel to South Africa from there to sign the contract.

Sredojevic held a meeting with Federation for Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) president Moses Magogo on Monday, but it is believed that Magogo failed to convince him to stay on a Cranes coach.

Sredojevic confirmed the meeting on his Twitter account, but could not say if whether or not he stay.

“As agreed on constructive talks with FUFA I got few days of deserved rest until issues sorted or not. All other stories are mere speculations (sic),” wrote Sredojevic.
