Briefly.co.za previously reported that Micho might have misled the Orlando Pirates about the reasons behind his decision to step down as the Bucs coach.

The Serbian-born coach travelled to Egypt after quitting at the Pirates and he initially denied reports of taking another job.

However, The Sowetan reported that Zamalek president Mortada Mansour, confirmed that Micho would be the Cairo giants’ new coach.

Now, the 49-year-old, who only had one year left of his three-year contract with the Pirates, has taken to social media to reflect on his "terrible" week.

“Relieved that terrible week threatening to destroy me as human being and hardworking coach serving wholeheartedly Orlando Pirates and South African football with sleepless nights and tireless days is back like fish in the water to football training field to serve Zamalek and Egyptian football‚” he wrote on Twitter.

The post rubbed South African fans up in the wrong way and they were quick to call out Micho for lying to the Bucs.

Charity Thabe, who goes by the Twitter handle @CharityThabe, commented: "You should not have lied about why you resigned thou , anyway good luck with your Zamalek."
Rammusi Mokgatle, @DRMokgatle, added: "What value did you add at Pirates to have earned yourself a coaching job @Zamalek? I feel like you chickened out because you realised that you can't steer the ship from cascading anymore. I wish you success at Zamalek. Be a winning coach that you think you are! Once and always!"
