Reports coming from Zambia indicate that former Uganda Cranes and Zamalek manager Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic is among a three-man shortlist for the Zambia national team head coach position.
After 12 games in charge of Zamalek, winning seven games, losing four games, and drawing just one game, the former Uganda Cranes head coach was sacked after a series of poor results.
The Serbian also led the Whites their second consecutive Egypt Cup trophy when they beat Pyramids FC in the final.
With one month after being without a job the former Orlando Pirates manager is reportedly close to landing the Zambia national team job.
According to SuperSport TV reporter Usher Komugisha, Micho is among the top three candidates set to be chosen for the vacant job.
The other candidates include former Al-Ittihad Tripoli manager Ivan Minnaert and former Portuguese international Abel Xavier.
This position has been vacant since the departure of Belgian national Sven Vandenbroeck back in February 2019.
Vandenbroeck resigned after leading Zambia to one win, drawing one and losing two in the four games he coached them.
