Milutin Sredojević has described his move to Egyptian giants Zamalek as a 'dream come true' after being unveiled as the club's new head coach.
Zamalek have been in search of a new manager over the past few weeks ahead of the 2019/20 season after they relieved Khaled Galal of his duties upon a defeat to domestic rivals Al Ahly.
On Saturday, club president Mortada Mansour revealed that Sredojević, who was on their five-man short-list, would become the club's new coach just hours after he announced his resignation from the Buccaneers - in which he cited was due to personal reasons.
The Serbian tactican becomes the 16th manager to coach the CAF Confederation Cup champions since Mansour was elected club president five years ago, after agreeing a one-year contract with the White Knights.
“I have been coaching in Africa for 19 years. I have worked in seven countries and visited 50 out of 54 African countries, but today I can say that my dream has come true after taking charge of Zamalek,” Micho said.
“We have a fantastic squad. The best Tunisian players, the best three Moroccan players, in addition to the Egyptian ones. The club has all the success factors.
“Zamalek is a special club that you fall in love with as soon as you enter it. I want to work hard in order to achieve the fans’ goals."
