The NPA has confirmed that Zambian national coach Milton Sredojevic appeared in court in Port Elizabeth on sexual assault charges.
The former Orlando Pirates coach was in South Africa, attending the U20 Cosafa Cup.
A statement about the Serbian’s court appearance from the National Prosecuting Authority of South Africa read:
“It is alleged that on Monday 07 December during the Cosafa Games in Port Elizabeth a 39-year-old woman was delivering coffee at the Wolfson Stadium when she asked Sredojevic if he would need sugar with his coffee. He allegedly said no and disclosed that he needed another type of sugar while pointing at her private parts.”
“It is alleged that the lady complained to her boss who in turn warned Sredojevic not to do it again.”
Later on that day the lady went to deliver coffee again at the same stadium and this time Sredojevic allegedly touched her buttocks.”
“He was granted R10 000 bail and his next court appearance will be on 25 February 2021.”
