Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been sacked as Zambia national football team coach, Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has confirmed.
In a statement, FAZ General Secretary, Adrian Kashala, says they had parted ways with Micho by mutual agreement after holding a meeting on Saturday morning.
“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,” Kashala says.
FAZ thanked Micho for serving the Chipolopolo from February 3 2020.
The association’s website has since quoted Micho as thanking FAZ for offering him the opportunity to work for the national team.
“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 is quoted saying.
FAZ sacked Micho a few days after Chipolopolo bowed out of Cosafa Cup from the group stage in South Africa following a string of poor results.
Micho previously worked in Tanzania, South Africa and Uganda.
