FUFA Speaks Out

How did we reach here?
Per the National Prosecuting Authority statement released earlier, the incident happened in December 2020.
Then a Zambia coach, Micoh was attending a Cosafa football tournament at the Wolfson Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
A woman delivering coffee asked if the coach would like sugar with his drink. “Micho allegedly said no and disclosed that he needed another type of sugar while pointing at her private parts,” said the NPA Regional Spokesperson Anelisa Ngcakani.
The woman then complained to her boss, who warned Sredojević not to do it again.
“Later on that day, the lady went to deliver coffee again at the same stadium and this time Sredojević allegedly touched her buttocks,” said Ngcakani.
Micho has been in and out of the court since then before he was found guilty on Tuesday.
