Former Orlando Pirates coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has been confirmed as the new coach of Egyptian giants Zamalek.
Micho’s shock resignation as Pirates coach was announced by the South Africa side late on Friday night, before rumours of joining Zamalek followed several hours later.
Now with just over 48 hours, the 49-year-old Serb has become Zamalek’s newest coach.
“I have been coaching in Africa for 19 years. I have worked in seven countries and visited 50 out of 54 African countries, but today I can say that my dream has come true after taking charge of Zamalek,” Micho said via KingFut.
“We have a fantastic squad. The best Tunisian players, the best three Moroccan players, in addition to the Egyptian ones. The club has all the success factors.”
Micho’s first two will be a CAF Champions League preliminary round qualifier at home to Somalian side Dekedaha FC this Friday.
