Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic says he will serve the club to the best of his ability, regardless of what his contract situation with the Soweto Giants is.

The Buccaneers boss has just one year remaining on his current deal and speculation is rife as to whether he will be offered a new deal or not.

On the one hand, he has yet to bring a trophy to the club in his current reign, but there is no doubt that he has got them playing much better than before he joined.

The consensus is pretty clear that he will be offered an extension if he wins something next season, but Micho insists that does not add any extra pressure because he serves to the best of his ability regardless of the situation.

"Look, I don't want to think about [his contract]. I need to tell you that I have come every single night and hard-working every single night sleepless," he told KickOff website.

"I have given service and I will still give service. Between you and me I was in problem in 2001 when I came to Africa and now my name is a brand name on the continent and I have served Pirates in the best possible way.

"The moment I go, I am just one telephone call away from the next job, in the national team of South Africa and big teams on the continent.

"I am soldier and servant of Orlando Pirates and I only focus on Orlando Pirates. Contract, this and that…I do not at all think about that. I just want to serve the badge and jersey."
