Many supporters would have woken up to the shocking news on Saturday morning, and we take a look at all the reactions from the moment it was announced and into the late hours.
Those reports confused South African followers who read Sredojevic left Pirates for personal reasons, to attend to his ill mother in Serbia.
On Saturday new reports emerged where Sredojevic denied the Egyptian news linking him with Zamalek.
We take a look at a video where 'Micho' announced his resignation, paying tribute to Pirates and fans.
There is also another Tweet where he had earlier explained why he won't be swayed by interest from Zamalek.
Finally, there are also Bucs fans commenting on the fact Micho's popular assistant Rhulani Mokwena will temporarily coach the first team.

Zamalek president Mortada Monsour has announced on Mehwar TV that Serbian Micho Sredojevic is the new Head Coach of the Egyptian giants. pic.twitter.com/q0QoEZA4ty— Diski_Style (@Diski_Style) August 17, 2019
Rhulani Mokwena has assumed the coaching seat at Orlando Pirates and he will be assisted by Fadlu Davids and Franck Plaine. This after Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic quit as head coach. Atleast there wont be any confusion as to who is the head coach anymore. #OnceAlways #AbsaPrem pic.twitter.com/6zRnrHO5Cu— Chief Erican (@EricanSA) August 17, 2019
50% - Orlando Pirates won 50% of their #AbsaPrem games since Milutin Sredojević (Micho) took over at the start of the 2017 season, the highest league win percentage for the club by a coach since Roger De Sa (2012-2014, also 50%).

Sredojević, so these are personal reasons? Being dishonest to the Pirates fans and sending a somber video🤔 5 August he ruled our leaving Pirates & said was committed to them.Zamalek don't play, coaches have left after 1 day. Last one left after 3. Mortada Monsour is a crazy man. pic.twitter.com/ehbzAxWQuV— 🇿🇦Thabang Mantutle🇱🇸 (@ThabangMantutle) August 17, 2019

I'm happy for coach Milutin Sredojevic for having finally set himself free, and I hope he soon finds a football club where he's going to be treated with respect he deserves. GOAT. pic.twitter.com/FbhyBclP7U— Sqwayi🇿🇦 (@LindaniMthethwa) August 16, 2019

Milutin Sredojevic is an honest man with integrity and I commend him to do the honorable thing. Now let's see if if the favorite Coach uzophakama na— Si6usiso (@Si6usiso) August 16, 2019
If what I have just heard about the reasons behind Milutin Sredojević's departure from @orlandopirates is true, then we may have an even greater cover-up here. Doesn't look like Micho left Pirates because of anything to do with football.— Arabile Gumede (@ArabileG) August 17, 2019
