Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says the club hired
Fadlu Davids as second assistant due to his talent but added he had a major
role to fill in the technical team.
Davids was recently brought in by the Sea Robbers to take
over the vacancy left by former assistant Benson Mhlongo, who left to coach TS
Sporting in the National First Division in 2018 (Ed's note: But has since left
The 37-year-old arrives at Mayfair with an enhanced
reputation having guided Maritzburg United to their best ever finish in the Absa Premiership in 2017/18, as well as to the final of the Nedbank Cup where they
lost to Free State Stars.
However, he was sacked by the Team of Choice in December
with the side struggling in the relegation zone. Nonetheless, he now has a good
opportunity to establish himself in 'Micho's' technical team.
Sredojevic said: "For some time, since Benson left for
TS Sporting, we had a gap in our second assistant position, and the club took
the chance to bring in Fadlu Davids.
"We have welcomed him in an organised environment,
where he is coming at a time when we are in very good shape to add and
contribute from his own aspect as a second assistant.
"I believe there is huge space for whatever we do,
because we are never happy and satisfied, we want more. We believe he will give
his full contribution, and this is what I can say.
"He is welcome, he has come in an organised
environment. He has even before...unfortunately now his old team Maritzburg is
fighting relegation, but before we played them, he came here and watched 10 of
our matches, so he knows us and now comes to add his value.
"Now we look forward and expect him to give his
contribution in the best possible way."
