Kashimoto Backs Under-fire Micho

Sports Feature Sports Kashimoto Backs Under-fire Micho

Ex-KK Eleven star and Mufulira Wanderers legend Fredrick Kashimoto has backed coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic in the wake of Chipolopolo’s exit from the Cameroon 2021 CHAN at the quarterfinal stage.

Morocco eliminated Zambia from the CHAN with a huge 3-1 win in last Sunday night’s quarterfinal tie in Douala.

Some soccer fans have criticized Micho over Zambia’s exit from the CHAN.

But Kashimoto has lashed out at fans that are calling for Micho’s blood.

“Fans should not just talk for the sake of talking. Fans should ask themselves what is their contribution to the National Soccer Team. Is it just to criticize the National Team? The team tried its best at the CHAN,” Kashimoto said.

“The coach is ok. We need to keep the coach. The team’s performance at CHAN was not bad. And some of these fans making noise do not add value to football,” Kashimoto said.

Zambia left the CHAN with one win, two draws and a defeat at the continental championship exclusively for home based players.

“You are just criticizing the coach without looking at the quality of players we have as a nation. Some of these players just play one season and they are finished,” he said.

The former Mufulira Wanderers, City of Lusaka and National Women’s Team coach said Chipolopolo should build not lose focus.

  1. Ba Frederick you are very right. Micho will be judged in the long run not in petty competitions like CHAN and COSAFA. Im sure he willprove himself during AFCON and World Cup qualifying.

  2. Lets learn to exercise patience as soccer fans. We are quick to condemn rather than offering solutions. MICHO should continue building our CHIPOLOPOL Boys. The performance of the team was not that bad looking at the record. 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss.

  3. In Zambia that’s why even when it comes to economic management we put the blame on wrong people..you hear people talk about the Western world.. Climate change etc and yet it’s the players running our affairs who are not serious with what they were voted for. The same applies to our National Soccer Teams…. We need to realise as Zambians that our Players take us for a granted when they’re on National duty. If we can castigate them so that they realise also that we are not happy with their performance at tournaments.. They will definitely change for the better.

  4. Chilongoshi is an excellent defender who can mature to be one of the best and dependable. He is not the only one to get a red card even the legendary Christiano ronaldo one got a red card. All we need as Zambians is a positive attitude when our players are playing. The bad thing is some people started predicting a great loss for Zambia before our team even entered the field of play “Mulailowela mwebene ” and then you come back crying “Muleke ubuwele wele ubu”

  5. THERE’S NOTHING MICHO HAS DONE TO IMPROVE THAT TEAM, I SEE THE SAME OLD WEAKNESSES:

    1. NO ACCURACY IN PASSING – CANT SUSTAIN A STRING OF MORE THAN 3 PASSES AT ALL
    2. EASILY LOSING POSSESSION – NOT STRONG ON THE BALL, PLUS LOW FITNESS LEVELS
    3. NO SELF CONFIDENCE – THEY DONT SEE THEMSELVES WORTHY OF THE BEST
    4. THE TEAM HAS NO MOTIVATORS WHO CAN TAKE THINGS PERSONALLIKE JOHNSTONE BWALAY, DERBY MANKINKA OR KALUSHA BWALYA WOULD DO – OR EVEN HARRY MILANZI. YOU CAN EASILY READ DEFEAT IN THEIR EYES
    5. THEY STILL HAVE THAT CHARACTERISTIC CARELESSNESS TO CONCEDE FREE KICKS AROUND THEIR
