Micho explains why Orlando Pirates hired Davids
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 that team).

The 37-year-old arrives at Mayfair with an enhanced reputation having guided Maritzburg United to their best ever finish in the 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."
