The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has announced it has mutually separated with the senior Men’s National Team Head Coach Milutin ‘Michó’ Sredojevic.
This is after a meeting between both parties held Saturday morning at Football House, Lusaka.
“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,” said FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala.
Shortly after the meeting, FAZ said they were thankful for Micho’s time at the helm of Chipolopolo since February 3, 2020. And wished him the best of luck in his next assignment.
According to FAZ, Micho was equally appreciative of the opportunity and support rendered by both the federation and the people of Zambia during his tenure.
“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,” Micho told FAZ website.
In the recent past, the former Uganda Cranes tactician has been under pressure due to poor results consistently produced by the Chipolopolo.
The icing on the cake is the ongoing Cosafa Cup where Zambia bowed at the group stage. The defending champions won just once, drew one and lost two games.
Sydney Mungala, the Communications Manager said FAZ would announce the Serbian replacement in the next few days.
