Zambia national side coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic sees this job as the chance to make his and Chipolopolo’s dream of playing in the FIFA World Cup come true.
The Serbian coach arrived early this year at the back of some of the biggest jobs in Africa. He was in charge of Orlando Pirates before he went up North to take over Egypt’s Zamalek.
Micho is focused on recovering and making amends for narrowly missing out on Russia 2018 with Uganda's Cranes.
“That wound is still hurting inside me and Zambia is the place where I believe I can heal that wound of taking the team to the World Cup,” Micho told ZNBC, as reported by LusakaTimes.
Sredojevic believes that working with Zambia’s cream of talent, hunger and potential is something priceless that no higher paying job would replace.
“Believe me, money will come one day but there is something in life that money can’t buy. It is working with talented players who have enormous amounts of space to develop and room to improve.”
“That happiness inside us football people is something that one cannot really explain with words,” he concluded.
