Zamalek step up Micho pursuit


Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has reportedly made the final five-man shortlist for the vacant head coach role of Egyptian giants Zamalek.

Zamalek are said to be in the final stages of their selection process over the hiring of their new head coach after finishing the 2019 season without any silverware.
According to Egyptian news outlet FilGoal, the club's president Mortada Mansour called upon a meeting attended by several club legends and the board of directors, in which a presentation was delivered with the final candidates and their credentials.
The report added that former Zamalek stars such as Ahmed Abdel Halim, interim coach Tarek Yehia and board member Ismail Youssef were amongst several influential figures discussing the direction the White Knights will move towards ahead of the new season and who will be the ideal candidate to lead the club.
Sredojevic, 49, is held in high regard by the North African giants due to his vast experience on the continent, more notably his work with the Uganda national team and Sports Club Villa.
However, he is the only manager shortlisted that is currently occupied, with the four other candidates recently vacating their roles at their respective teams in Europe and Asia.
