Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic made a shock exit out of Absa Premiership giants Orlando Pirates.
Micho's departure was based on his mother’s illness, but he was quickly announced as Zamalek’s new coach in August 2019. The now Zambia head coach only lasted under five weeks in Egypt before getting the sack after 12 games.
Asked on how much he regrets the move to Cairo while chatting to AFHQ this week, the Serbain coach shared nothing but positive memories.
"It was a special privilege to manage one of the biggest clubs in African football," Sredojevic to AFHQ via Kick Off.
"I had a great experience with club president Mortada Mansour and his management. I had amazing relationships with the players and management.
"Even now, they contacted me when they won the Super Cup, when I became Zambia coach they wished me all the best.
"I really didn't take any negative emotions or memories from my time at Zamalek. I remember it in the best possible way. Winning the Egyptian Cup, we made it to the Champions League after three years.
"While I am no longer with the team, I don't feel any grudges and I wish them all the best. It was a great experience coaching Zamalek,” concluded Sredojecvic.
