Micho Relishing Patson’s Zambian Flavour In The EPL


Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho” Sredojevic says Patson Daka has given the country something to look forward to in the coming football season.

Patson on June 30 completed a five-year deal with English Premiership side Leicester City from Austrian Bundesliga champions RB Salzburg.

Micho backed the 22-year-old Chipolopolo strike to shine with the 2015/16 English champions adding that he was the ideal player for Brendan Rodgers philosophy.

“It is a stepping stone and I believe he is not to just going to play an episode role in the English Premiership but also to stay there and make a significant stamp and put Zambia properly on the football map of the world because we know how English football followed,” Micho said.

Patson arrival at Leicester makes him the third Chipolopolo striker to grace the EPL after Collins Mbesuma at Portsmouth and Emmanuel Mayuka at Southampton.


  1. Mayuka was playing same team as Sadio Mane.. Sadio was from Patson’ now former team Salzburg.
    I see Patson hit higher than Sadio.
    Looking forward to Patson win World Footballer of the year.

  2. what a cheeky bastard – are all zambians this rude and misguided ? Paka’s got to prove he’s good enough for the Leicester first team never mind use the club as a ‘stepping stone’

  3. Yes he is a very good player and with very good record of a good character, let him remain focus that he will achieve what he wants for sure, All the best PD we are proud of you.
