The Emergency Committee of the Football Association of Zambia in their meeting on Monday decided to choose Micho as the new Chipolopolo boss.
Micho’s appointment is now subjected for the approval from Ministry of Sports, the bankrollers of the coach’s salary.
The 50-year-old tactician has rich of experience in Africa having handled top sides like St. George, Al Hilal Omdurman, Villa SC, Young Africans, Orlando Pirates and Zamalek SC.
He has so far won 14 league titles in five different big clubs on the continent and other individual laurels for himself.
Micho also handled the Rwanda national team from 2011 to 2013 where he guided the Amavubi to the 2014 World Cup qualifications group stages.
Micho was appointed coach of Uganda in May 2013 and was able to qualify the Cranes to the Africa Cup of Nations for the very first time in 39 years before leaving the post in 2017.
