Following reports linking the Serbian manager with the Zambia national team head coach roles, Soccer Laduma contacted the ex-Buccaneers tactician to enquire about his situation.

The Serb explained that he has various offers on the table but needs to decide whether he will go for a club or take on a national team.

"Since December, I've received offers from left and right," he said.

"I've been offered a job by Pyramids in Egypt, from Club Africa in Tunisia, from MC Alger in Algeria, from Wydad Casablanca, the Zimbabwe national team, the Ghana national team, the Zambian national team.

"All these offers are part of life, but, for me, I'm at a crossroads and I need to choose whether to go for a club or national team.

"To go for big money or to go for less money but project.

"I'm on crossroads and we shall see what the next few days will bring.

"Personally, I've always believed in projects, so I will see which project will suit to my personal career plan."

Reports in Zambia suggest that Sredojevic is all but set for the Chipolopolo role after being shortlisted alongside Portuguese tactician Abel Xavier and Belgian coach Ivan Minnaert. It has also been claimed that only the approval of the Ministry of Sports is missing.
