Zambia is the strongest team at Cosafa Cup says micho
Embattled Chipolopolo Boys coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic believes his side is still the strongest side at the ongoing 2021 Cosafa Cup in South Africa.
Despite the Southern Africa power house’s woes deepening following successful back-to-back defeats to minnows Lesotho on Thursday, and Eswatini on Saturday, the outspoken Serbian coach has also accepted the pressure from the fans.
“I still believe with all due respect to the other teams, we are the strongest team in the tournament,” the Serbian-born coach said in a post-match interview.
” But it’s not about how strong you are but it’s about what you put on in the field of play and it’s all about results.
Micho, who is believed to be getting over a monthly salary of K550, 000 was also quick to point to the fact that the defending Champions have not created theirs on luck.
“We have not given enough to football for football to pay us back,” the former Orlando Pirates and Zamalek coach added.
Micho’s Chipolopolo Boys were handed a 1-0 loss at the hands of Eswatini on Saturday leaving them almost out of the 2021 COSAFA Cup .
The five times Champions have already suffered shock defeats to Lesotho and Swaziland.
Zambia will face Botswana and South Africa in the remaining group matches.
The 2012 African Champions are currently bottom on the group with no points.
