Veselin Jelušić reveals Micho played a role in his decision to join City of Lusaka

Serbian football coach Veseline Jelušić who was on Monday officially unveiled as the new head coach of FAZ/Eden University National Division One side, City of Lusaka says he joined Yamoto partly because of Chipolopolo coach Milutin Sredojevic’s good reference about the club to him.

Coach Vesko as he fondly referred to was officially unveiled as Yamoto head coach and took charge of his first City of Lusaka training session that afternoon at the MTN Woodlands Stadium.

The former Bloemfontein Celtic boss went on to say that it will be a pleasure for him to work with City of Lusaka and that he is excited about the ambitious project at City of Lusaka.

“I have been in Africa since 1991, I worked in Angola 10 years, in Botswana 8 years, and South Africa so I know a lot about Zambian football, It’s respected not only in Africa but across the world. For example, you have two very talented players in Salzburg and Belgium so it’s an honor and pleasure for me to come here and work together with you for the betterment of Zambian football. I had a very good reference for this team by your national team coach Mr. Milutin Sredojevic who is a friend and colleague whom I respect very much so his opinion and suggestions contributed to me making this decision,” Jelušić said.

“It will be my great pleasure and honor to work with the City of Lusaka and let me congratulate them for qualifying to the FAZ/Eden University National Division One.”

“What attracted me most to come here is the ambitious project to invest and promote young players to help them reach high quality. To work with young players is the most creative part of being a coach and was the biggest motivation for me to come here,” he added.

The former Angola and Botswana national team coach was appointed as Yamoto Head Coach last week and unveiled this week. Jelušić will be assisted by George Kapembwa, who guided Yamoto to the Eden University National League.

The Serbian-born coach becomes the third European trainer to drill City of Lusaka Football Club after former Aston Villa and England national team striker John “Jackie” Sewell coached Yamoto in 1964, and Italian National, Roberto Landi.
