Former Uganda Cranes Head Coach, Sredojevic Milutin Micho, has been approved by the Government of Republic of Zambia to coach the Senior Men’s National football team as he pens a two years contract as the coach of 2012 African Cup of Nations winners.
Micho arrived in Lusaka six months ago but the sports minister in Zambia Mr Emmanuel Mulenga delayed his approval on behalf of the government and FAZ as the football governing body in the Country has been paying 15,000 USD of the 25,000 USD of the monthly salary per month for the whole technical team should get for those six months.
While signing a contract, Sports Minister Emmanuel and FAZ President Andrew Kamanga witnessed.
“Firstly, I would like to welcome Mr Micho to my ministry, you are welcome and as government we will give you the support you need and we will make your work easy.” Sports Minister Emmanuel said before adding.
“We will also make sure that we work hand in hand with FAZ in attending to the Challenges youth are going to face in this country. His Excellency the President of Republic of Zambia ( Edgar Lungu) who is the patron of FAZ welcomes you to this nation and believes that you can deliver and can meet the expectation of the people of Zambia in making sure that the glory we had in this nation is retained.”
This is Micho’s third National team Job after working with two East African Countries Uganda and Rwanda before.
