Micho: Money Can’t Buy My Chipolopolo Dreams

Sports Feature Sports Micho: Money Can't Buy My Chipolopolo Dreams

Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says it is not a down-grade to accept the Zambia job with less money after coming from two high profile club stints.

Micho was appointed Chipolopolo coach in February after a six month stint at five-time African champions Zamalek of Egypt following a second stint in South Africa as Orlando Pirates coach.

But Micho said he is on a mission to redeem his 2018 World Cup qualifiers disappointment wihen Uganda finished second in Group E behind Egypt beat them to the ticket to Russia on 9 and 13 ppoints while Ghana were third on 8 points.

“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’s Dressing Room Show.

“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 amount of space to develop and room to improve.

“That happiness inside us football people is something that one cannot really explain with words.”

Zambia have been draw in Group B for the Qatar qualifiers against Equatorial Guinea , Mauritania and five-time FIFA World Cup finalists Tunisia.

  1. Yes micho we have every faith in you. Not everything is about money. Some of us are passionate about our careers unlike our friends in opposition who see $$ in every thing they do. To them Money is more important than life itself. Very sad

  2. Kaiza i think it immature to politicize everything…are we ever going to grow up as African Politicinas…its a shame indeed!!!

  3. Zambia is a great footballing nation and has loads of great talent my advise to you coach just plan well,select players on merit and work smart you will reap eenormous rewards Harve Renard came as a no body to our country the boys made him a good CV and the rest is history that in itself is a big motivation for you

    • I agree with you ba Bernard Chizinga. Herve is now out of our league. FAZ cannot reemploy him, but Zambia contributed a lot to make him who he is today and this Micho maybe is a better coach than Herve. The real problem is FAZ House. The Administration is pathetic. This coach may not even have a signed contract.

  4. Sports ministry, do your Job, we can never find a coach as passionate as Micho with the kind of resources , let us not lose this coach otherwise posterity will judge us harshly, now that Kalusha’s confusion is out of the way let us look forward I am sure Kamanga will find something for Kalusha to do within the football circles, Kamanga has a pure heart and is patriotic enough to be inclusive, now that Kalusha knows who is boss.
