Official: Micho's New Job Confirmed

Former Orlando Pirates coach Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic has been appointed as the new coach of the Zambian national team after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.

Click through the gallery above to see some images of Micho's unveiling.

Chipolopolo failed to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, and subsequently did not renew coach Sven Vandenbroek's contract.

Micho told Soccer Laduma previously that he had a host of offers, and he has now signed a two-year-deal with Zambia.

Having been without a job since December, when he left Egyptian giants Zamalek, the Serbian tactician's first game in charge of Zambia will be an AFCON 2021 qualifier against Botswana.

Qualification, though, will be tricky after his new side lost their first two games in Group H 5-0 to Algeria and 2-1 to Zimbabwe.

Zambia will also strive to qualify for their first ever FIFA World Cup and to keep the dream alive, they will have to top their group, which also features Tunisia, Mauritania and Equatorial Guinea, in order to qualify for the next round.

Zambia are Micho's third African national team following stints with Rwanda and Uganda, whom he led to their first participation at an AFCON in 39 years back in 2017.
