“Earlier this morning, the Port Elizabeth regional court found former Zambian national football team coach, Milutin Sredojevic, …guilty of two counts of sexual assault,” the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said in a statement.

The three-year jail sentence was wholly suspended for five years, on condition he does not commit another sexual offence.

The offence arose from an incident in December 2020 during a regional tournament in the South African city of Gqeberha, formerly Port Elizabeth.

A 39-year-old woman was serving coffee at a stadium and asked Sredojevic if he took sugar in his coffee, he said “no and added that he needed another type of sugar, pointing at her private parts,” said the NPA.
