Zambia Appoints Former Uganda Cranes Tactician, Micho As New Head Coach

January 23, 2020

The Football Association of Zambia has appointed Serbian Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic as head coach of the Zambian National Team.

Micho will jet into Zambia next week to sign a two year deal.

FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala confirmed the appointment to the media this afternoon.

FAZ has since informed the Ministry of Sports over the development.

Micho is coming with an assistant coach, goalkeeper trainer and will be joined from time to time by a physical trainer and a video analyst.

Micho has been job-less since his sacking at Egyptian club Zamalek early last month and has since then been linked to various offers across the African continent.

He began his national team coaching career with Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars before leading Uganda Cranes to their first AFCON qualification since 1978.

At club level, he has coached SC Villa in Uganda, Yanga SC (Tanzania), Al Hilal (Sudan), St. George (Ethiopia), Orlando Pirates in South Africa and lately Zamalek (Egypt).
