With the current state of affairs, there no signs of former Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovic leaving his current job at Orlando Pirates for Zamalek SC in Egyptian.

Yet according to reports in Egypt, Micho and Zamalek are in advanced talk although the Serbian still has a running contract with the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The 12-time Egyptian champions are without a coach after they fired Swiss Christian Gross on June 1st 2019, having signed a two-year deal on April 2018.

“They (Micho and Zamalek) are in advanced talk,” a highly placed Egyptian source told on Wednesday.

“Right now, Tarek Yehia is in charge as head coach in charge of training as they wait for the arrival of a foreign coach who is supposed to be Micho,” the source added.
