A number of high-profile South African journalists have posted images of former Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic exiting an airport in Cairo.
The photographs have received a strong reaction from Pirates supporters, just a day after 'Micho' denied he left Bucs to join Zamalek.
Interestingly, Sredojevic had not totally ruled out a move to Zamalek, he just doubted they could afford him. However, the biggest obstacle contradicting these rumours, is the news Sredojevic went back to Serbia to attend to his ill mother.
For these reasons, the football media and fans in South Africa continue to ask questions.
The SABC's Velile Mnyandu is one of the journalists who posted the images at the airport, and he also posted a video of Micho stating his focus is at Pirates when speculation of other African clubs started to surface.
We also provide videos of Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rulani Mokwena, who discusses the impact of Sredojevic's exit at the club.
Then there are official responses from Micho himself to a few other crazy rumours doing the rounds on the reason he left Pirates. Micho has placed each of those rumours to bed.
Now, with these new photographs, the plot thickens.
Micho has landed at Cairo International Airport.....so it begins. https://t.co/8iSqP8ffmQ— Velile Mnyandu 🇿🇦 (@Velile_Mnyandu) August 18, 2019

Micho: “This is a shame. My lawyers will be dealing with this. I have been the most respectful person, soldier and servant of the game. I don’t deserve this.” https://t.co/h8CEMsm6BK— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) August 18, 2019
Zamalek Pres Mortada Mansour is one crazy character, he appoints a coach on national television & two days later he changes his mind. But it’s also worth noting that Aleksandar Stanojević hadn’t signed his contract yet. Did ask coach @michocoach about this offer on Thursday. pic.twitter.com/5h1yzd1kBY— Velile Mnyandu 🇿🇦 (@Velile_Mnyandu) August 17, 2019
This gets more interesting by the minute.— TRANSFORMER MATLABA DOUBLE ENGINE (@Ma_round35) August 18, 2019
Coach is under contract.
Someone knocks on his door.
Coach tells the guy at the door (allegedly) that he's under contract (and it is up to the Shemeni).
Coach resigns and mentions "personal" stuff.
Now at the "knocker's" house
Any scriptwriter here in the room?— TRANSFORMER MATLABA DOUBLE ENGINE (@Ma_round35) August 18, 2019
This could be a box office hit
All the best coach, you were good to us though we didn't win anything.See you in Champions League,— Pilani (@pilanimdz) August 18, 2019
And personal problems will be sorted out there?— wa-mashudu (@lukieml1) August 18, 2019
