After claiming he was leaving the Buccaneers for personal reasons and that his mother was ill, 'Micho' ended up in Cairo instead of Serbia.
The former Pirates coach was officially announced at Zamalek with a one-year deal on Monday night.
The 49-year-old signed for the Egyptians barely three days after leaving the Buccaneers.
Trying to make sense of these turn of events for social media followers, we have to remember Sredojevic never claimed he won't sign for Zamalek. Maybe, he was trying to say it wasn't a done deal yet and the Egyptians would first need to submit to his demands?
Whatever the case, South African fans were not impressed with the way he left Pirates for Zamalek and you can read how the supporters reacted on Twitter here.

.@michocoach has decided to work for one of the most controversial & combustible club presidents in Africa - @ZSCOfficial's Mortada Mansour. Known for being a streetwise coach, does Micho really know what he is letting himself in for, by taking up the Zamalek job? We shall see! https://t.co/fG4Mx5nZ31— Osasu Obayiuwana (@osasuo) August 19, 2019
I don’t care where Micho took us as a club but his departure from the club is of someone who lacks integrity and dishonesty. Why lie about your mother being sick and make up stories then deny Zamalek like Peter denying Jesus Christ?— Ta Shoezz (@trevor_mnini) August 18, 2019

Serbian Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic has been confirmed as coach of #Egypt's Zamalek a day after he left his role at #SouthAfrica's Orlando Pirates.

@themba_bizness Do not forget about Micho who did a Jackie Chan spin on Orlando Pirates. He left citing his mom is ailing only to be signed in as a coach of Zamalek yesterday. #ymornings @DJAnkletap @kandiskardash— 💣Not Adv Mokotedi Mpshe💣 (@ThandoNdlovu99) August 20, 2019
If Mansour could dismiss Christian Gross, who won Zamalek’s first AFRICAN trophy in 17 years, in the way he did last season - in such a dishonourable and discourteous way, what performance can Micho deliver in just one year?— Soka25east.com (@soka25east) August 20, 2019
