According to Daily Mail in Zambia, the list of 13 coaches was cut down to three and Sredojevic will face competition from Portuguese-born Mozambican Abel Xavier and Belgian Ivan Jacky Minnaert.

Sredojevic was sacked by Egyptian giants Zamalek at the start of December following poor results in the Caf Champions League.

The Serbian mentor is also earmarked for the coaching job in Zimbabwe with the Warriors needing a permanent coach.

Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa), however, have struggled financially previously and they might not have the budget to get Sredojevic’s services.
