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.

“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.

Micho has also thanked FAZ and the people of Zambia for having supported 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,” Micho says.

Meanwhile Federation Association of Zambia will announce the succession roadmap in the next few days.

It is rumored that Micho ‘the Serbian Wolf’ is likely to come back to Uganda to either take on the Uganda Cranes coaching job or the Vipers head coaching job to replace Fred Kajoba who left the club mid way last season.

Micho was still in his early 30s when he set off on his African adventure that started at Kampala club Villa SC. Micho guided the club to 3 consecutive league titles (2001–2002, 2002–2003 and 2003–2004), but the 2001/2 season will forever remain memorable in the history books of Uganda’s football as Villa won the league title with only one loss in 28 games, on top of being crowned the Uganda Cup (Kakungulu winners) Villa SC, was also league winners the following year and CECAFA Club victors after 17 years since Villa had last won the championships.
