Part of the Press release by FAZ read..
"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.
In the midst of the search for a new Uganda Cranes Coach to succeed Jonathan McKinstry who was sacked three months ago, it remains to be seen if Micho can be brought back to coach Uganda Cranes ahead of the fourth coming World Cup Qualifiers.
It should be noted the Micho guided Uganda Cranes first appearance in the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017 after close to 40 years absence from the continental tournament.
After a mutual understanding was reached, Micho had this to tell..
“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 said.
Meanwhile FAZ will announce the succession roadmap in the next few days said Sydney Mungala the communications Manager, FAZ
