Having visited 50 out of the 54 African countries is no mean feat, especially if you are a Multin Micho Sredejovic, a Serbian who witnessed the Yugoslavia political upheaval during the early 90’s.
Considered one of the worst human atrocities, Micho Sredejovic has lived to tell the story and certainly always faces life head on no matter the situation.
His sudden departure from Orlando Pirates to Zamalek in 2019 where he spent less than three months before choosing Zambia over the enormous well paying North African nations was certainly not a difficult decision to make.
“I would like to say between going for the lucrative deals in North Africa – where people do not believe in the process,” Micho told South African publication Soccer Laduma.
“But they believe in instant results, they believe in the wonders of a magic stick and I am not looking in that direction now.”
“I would rather choose a project in Zambia where I’d really put everything into building what football planning is meant to be,” he added.
He was also quick to state that the world should unite to kick out the Coronavirus, especially since health is more important than football in the current situation.
“I think we need to emphasize in the strongest possible terms, that life matters.”
“To me, nothing is more important than human lives therefore, we need to accept what is happening and devise plans regarding what is best for us all,” he added.
The Chipolopolo of Zambia have failed to qualify for the last two AFCON editions (Gabon 2017 and Egypt 2019) and Micho is focused on making sure the 2012 AFCON winners return to the biggest stage on the continent in Cameroon 2021.
