Milutin Sredojevic: Ex-Orlando Pirates coach secures historic silverware with Zamalek


Milutin Sredojevic lifted his first silverware with Egyptian giants Zamalek in just his fifth game in charge since leaving Orlando Pirates.

After leading Zamalek to the First Round of the CAF Champions League with a 6-0 second leg win over Dekedaha, the Serbian has enjoyed a flawless journey to historic silverware.
In four games towards the Egyptian Cup title, The White Knights scored five goals and conceded none, with wins over Mido's Misr El-Makasa, Itthihad of Alexandria over two legs in the semi-final and Pyramids FC in the final.
The clash at the Borg Al Arab Stadium that saw 20 000 fans allowed to enter by the Egyptian government marked a battle of the former Uganda head coaches.
And Sredojevic managed to get the better of his counterpart Sebastian Desabre of Pyramids FC, who famously knocked Al Ahly out the last round of 16.
An Achraf Bencharki brace and a solitary strike from Youssef ‘Obama’ lead the Cairo giants to their first Egyptian Cup title in eight years and Sredojevic's first trophy since 2010.
