LUSAKA – Its end of road for clueless gaffer Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic. The Serbian has been dismissed from his job as Zambia national team coach with immediate effect following a string of poor results during his reign.
“The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to announce to its members and stakeholders that it has mutually separated with the senior Men’s National Team head coach Milutin ‘Michó’ Sredojevic.
“Both parties agreed to mutually separate after a meeting held this morning at Football House,” said Sydney Mungala, the association Communications Manager.
“FAZ can confirm that it has reached a mutual separation agreement with its senior Men’s National Team coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic. After a meeting between FAZ and the coach, it was agreed that in the interest of progress for both parties they had to separate,” says FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala.
“FAZ has thanked Micho for having steered the Chipolopolo from February 3, 2020, to date and wished him the best of luck in his next assignment.”
Meanwhile, the sacked Micho also thanked FAZ and the people of Zambia for the support they offered him during his stay.
“I am grateful to the Zambian people, the players, coaches, officials and the fans who supported me in various ways during my stay. All the positive experience with Chipolopolo Zambia I will use in my career ahead and would like to wish all the best to Zambia,” the Serbian said.
FAZ also assured the football loving Zambians that it will announce the succession roadmap in the next few days.
