Head coach of the Zambia national team Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has insisted that he is quite aware of the task that has been bestowed on his shoulders after he was appointed as head coach of the East-African country.
After winning the AFCON in 2012 the Zambia national team has never been the same, and has even failed to qualify for the last two editions of the continental tournament.
Micho who was entrusted with the task of reviving the Chipolopolo boys has stated that even though expectations are high but with the quality of players like Patson Daka and Mwepu under his guide, the Zambian national team could become a force in the African game again.
“The magnitude of the job is huge, this is a country with unbelievable football potential and an enormous amount of talent,” Sredojevic said on the COSAFA show. “I feel it on my shoulders, carrying the dreams of millions of Zambians both home and abroad.
“[But] I believe in those players… that are getting the interest of Manchester United [Daka] and Real Madrid [Mwepu], and with players that I am preparing from here that are unknown.
“Let me tell you, power is to find that fish when he is still small, and feed that fish to become the shark!”
