Former Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has revealed he held talks with Egyptian Premier League giants Al Ahly.
Sredojević is no stranger to Egyptian football after coaching Al Ahly's rivals Zamaelk in 2019 and won the Egypt Cup.
The current Uganda coach opened up about his time at Zamalek and reveals he was previously in talks with the Red Devils.
“I’m proud of my experience with Zamalek, I still have a good relationship with the players, and I congratulate Patrice Carteron on winning the league title,” Micho told OnTime Sport, as per KingFut.
“During my time with Zamalek, the quality and spirit among the players was not the same, there were some problems, and the conditions were more difficult than now. I was unlucky to leave Zamalek, but I’m happy with what they have achieved.
“There were no problems between me and the Zamalek board, the team and the technical staff were making a great effort, and I think that I will return to Zamalek one day, but in better conditions.
“Yes, there were negotiations [with Al Ahly] and there was a even a verbal agreement, but the it didn’t reach advanced stages. Unfortunately, there are decisions that I regret.
“But in general, I’m happy with my experience in Egypt, usually when I choose to coach a club, I choose the big clubs, and Zamalek is one of them. We can’t go back in time and it was an honor for me to coach Zamalek, even if I lost the opportunity to coach Al Ahly,” he added.
