Micho issues statement to Zamalek fans following dismissal from Zamalek


Former Zamalek coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has opened up to the White Knights fans after being sacked recently.

Micho was sacked as manager after the White Knights suffered two consecutive defeats in the same week.

A 2-1 loss against Enppi in the league followed by a humiliating 3-0 defeat against TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League spelled the end of Micho’s reign as Zamalek manager.

The Serbian’s highlight since taking charge of Zamalek came in September after winning the Egypt Cup title following a 3-0 victory over Pyramids FC.

However, Zamalek failed to continue building momentum at the start of the season as they missed out on the Egypt Super Cup title, suffering a 3-2 defeat to arch-rivals Al Ahly.

After his dismissal, Micho thanked Zamalek’s players, staff, and management in a statement he released on Twitter.

“Gratitude to all Egypt stakeholders of our game football especially those keeping Zamalek at heart for the memorable journey we passed together,” Micho’s statement reads.

“Sincere appreciation to all players, staff, and management it was honor, pleasure, and a privilege to live and love football with you. Good luck and all the best.”

The 50-year-old guided Zamalek in 13 games, where they won eight, drew one, and lost four games.
