All this started way back on 7th of December 2020 during the Cosafa Games in Gqeberha, when a 39-year-old woman was delivering coffee at the Wolfson Stadium when she asked Sredojević if he would need sugar with his coffee. This is as per the statement from the court read.
“He said no and added that he needed another type of sugar, pointing at her private parts. She complained about his conduct to her boss who in turn warned Micho not to do it again.
Later on that day, the lady again went to deliver coffee at the same stadium and this time Sredojević touched her in an inappropriate manner.” The court statement further elaborates.
At this time he was coach of the Zambian national team and was in South Africa to watch the regional Cosafa Under-20 Cup. He’s now the head coach of the Uganda cranes.
He has therefore been convicted on two counts of s3xual assault in South Africa. He has therefore been handed a five-year suspended sentence after being found guilty.
Sredojevic was also sentenced to three years imprisonment which was wholly suspended for five years on condition that he does not again contravene section 5(1) of the S3xual assault.
This means he’s a free man now for the next five years.
By the time of this mess, the coach is trying to lead Uganda to the third and final round of African qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Uganda’s football federation (Fufa) said in a statement produced earlier on this afternoon that the 52-year-old will carry on his duties with the Cranes despite the findings.
