Former SC Villa coach Milutin Sredojevic 'Micho" has been sacked by Sudanese giants Al-Hilal. The Serbian was axed following Al-Hilal's failure to beat Tunisia's Esperance in the first leg of the CAF Champions League semi final first leg encounter in Khartoum early this month.
Sources in Khratoum told URN on Sunday, that the management of Al-Hilal FC, the Sudan league champions decided to part ways with the Serbian, after the team failed to win the first leg of the semi-final of the CAF Champions League.
Al-Hilal lost 1-0 to Tunisia’s Esperance, and many team supporters were very angry that they could not win in their own backyard.
The 42-year-old coach has guided the Sudanese giants to two League victories since he arrived there two years ago from ST. George in Ethiopia, and also helped the team reach two CAF Champions League semi finals. Micho was reportedly sacked along with his assistant coach Tarek.
The Serbian who has handled other teams like Young Africans (Tanzania), St. George (Ethiopia) and Orlando Pirates in South Africa has reportedly applied for the job of national coach for Rwanda.
While incharge of SC Villa between 2002 and 2004, Micho stirred the team into professionalism and helped the blues win a double, dropping only five points in 28 matches and conceding only nine goals.
The following year Micho guided SC Villa to winning the regional Kagame Cecafa Club Championship which had taken the club 16 years to recapture. The same year SC Villa retained the League title, and by the time he left in July, 2004, the team had won 14 games and drawn one in their 15 games played.
