Uganda—The Uganda cranes coach, Milutin Sredojevic a.k.a ‘Micho’ has been found guilty of sexual assault.

According to a South African media ‘HeraldLIVE’s report on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, Micho was charged with the Gquberha Regional Court, South Africa, and was thus convicted on two counts of sexual assault.

Court also sentenced Micho to 3 years imprisonment and suspend him for 5 years.

His legal team was also granted leave to appeal the conviction.

“Former Zambian national soccer coach Milutin Sredojecvic leaving court after being convicted on two counts of sexual assault. He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment, suspended for five years. His legal team was granted leave to appeal the conviction,” reads a tweet from HeraldLIVE.

However, the Federation of Uganda football association (FUFA) believes that the national team coach will soon be back after accomplishing the private matter he asked permission to attend in South Africa.

“The Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Sredojevic asked FUFA for persimmon to attend a private matter in South Africa. We have this afternoon received the information that the private matter has been concluded, for now, the coach will come back to resume his duties accordingly.” FUFA’s statement reads.

Respectable sources reveal that Micho committed a crime during the 2021 U21 African cup of Nations qualifiers when he was still in charge of Zambia’s men’s national football team.

Micho is said to have been accused by a 39-year old woman to have “touched her buttocks and making inappropriate sexual remarks” to her.

The source also revealed that the lady had delivered coffee to Micho while watching a football match in the stands, and asked if he (Micho) want sugar.

It is further disclosed that Micho responded by saying he wants another type of sugar and pointed to the woman’s private parts before touching them.
