Motale ready to welcome Micho back to Pirates

Orlando Pirates legend Edward Motale says Micho Sredojevic should return to coach the club he left in the hands of Rulani Mokwena.

Sredojevic was sacked as a Zamalek coach at the beginning of the week and Motale believes he deserves a second chance at lead the Soweto giants.

“He got what he left was a good offer for him and he decided to leave Orlando Pirates and I don’t think he has any regrets about leaving,” Motale told Goal.

“He felt that he had to leave. Having said that it would be an unwise decision for Pirates to bring him back looking at how he left the club.

“We were told that he called the management and informed them of his decision to resign all of sudden. Then he vanished,” Motale continued.

“However, if there was an agreement between him and Pirates that he would come back to the club if things don’t work out at Zamalek, then I don’t have a problem with that.

“I’m saying this because he laid a good foundation at Pirates before he left. You could see that the team was destined to win trophies under his guidance.”
