Former Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic previously rubbished reports which linked him to a move to Zamalek in Egypt.

Sredojevic tendered his resignation on Friday night and has since been spotted in Cairo, Egypt.

It is believed that the coach travelled to four different countries within 72 hours as he initially travelled to Serbia to visit his ailing mother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
