Former Cranes Coach Micho Leaves Zambia

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has confirmed the development on Saturday.

Former Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovich has left his role as Zambia national football team coach.

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has confirmed the development on Saturday.

FAZ has stated that they have agreed to “mutually separate” after a meeting held on Saturday with the Serbian.

Micho who was unveiled as Chipolopolo coach on February 3, 2020 and has thanked the people of Zambia for their support during his stay.

“I grateful to the Zambian people, the players, coaches, officials and the fans who supported me in various ways during my stay,” Micho is quoted in a FAZ statement.

“All the positive experience with Chipolopolo Zambia I will use in my career ahead and would like to wish all the best to Zambia.”

Micho’s reign comes to a disappointing end with eight months still on the gaffer’s contract.

He failed to secure an AFCON ticket for the Chipolopolo as Zambia’s wait to return to Africa Cup of Nations continues for a third straight tournament.

His fate was eventually decided when Zambia poorly performed at Cosafa Cup in South Africa – The side lost to Lesotho and eSwatini.

Micho, left Uganda to join Orlando Pirates in July 2017, citing unpaid arrears of about Sh230M.

The Serbian Wolf, as Micho prefers to be called, started his African adventure in Africa with SC Villa.

He has had spells with Saint George, Orlando Pirates, Young Africans, Al-Hilal, Rwanda (National Team) and Zamalek.
