Micho – I was just trying to save the situation
Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojević says he was not involved in 1/3 of the games in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and should only be made to account for the games he has managed.
Speaking to the ZamFoot Crew after seeing charges drop out of the race to the Africa Cup of Nations Finals, said he came in to try to save the situation.
“Today was my 17th match I have won eight games drawn five and lost four. Unfortunately 1/3 of the qualifiers I was not involved,” Micho said.
“I would count this from the time I came. If you count 1,2,3… the first I was not involved and I came in trying to save the situation. I will count that we have only gotten four points from the last three matches” he added.
The Serbian was reacting to his teams failure to qualify to the finals of the Africa Cup after drawing 3 – 3 with Algeria. He added that he has the core of the team that can take Zambia to the World Cup.
“In football, you can either win or learn the lesson. The lesson learnt today is that with the same spirit we need to represent Zambia and Zambians in the best way. We now have the core of the team that that can be a proper contender to go to the World Cup.”
Zambia is in Group B of the Qatar 22 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and will face Tunisia, Mauritania and Equatorial Guinea.
The qualifiers kick off in June, 2021.
