Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has very quickly won over former Zambia international Billy Mwanza.
The Serbian coach then followed with organizing a friendly tournament in Uganda ahead of the 2020 CHAN tournament in Cameroon next month.
“It is good that the coach is giving a chance to everyone to prove themselves. This is a step in the right direction,” Mwanza said via Lusaka Times.
“I can go with the idea of trials. You know the coach has to know everyone. You know sometimes we ignore players from the lower division but I like the new coach is considering players from the lower division. This is good for the national team and for Zambian football,” he added.
“Early preparations are key. There is now time to waste,” Mwanza concluded.
Chipopolo will warm up agaist Uganda and Guinea before traveling to CHAN 2020 to face the likes of Tanzania and Namibia by April 4.
