Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has ended his relationship with the Soweto giants following a meeting with Bucs' boss Irvin Khoza.

"I don't want to say much except that I am going to relax a little bit and then decide on my next destination. I love soccer with all my heart and have developed strong passion for South African football. I enjoyed my stay with Orlando Pirates and feel sad to leave the team that I have grown to love so much. But that's how soccer sometimes is, cruel!"

'Micho' revealed that he will look at other options.

"There were enquiries from other teams in Africa but at this stage I don't want to rule out the possibility of my staying in South Africa," he added.

There was no comment from Orlando Pirates regarding who will replace the Serbian mentor.

However current technical advisor, DR Congo coach Bibey Mutombo, looks certain to lead the team when they take on Black Leopards in a PSL fixture at Ellis Park on Wednesday.
