Micho sensationally quit his post with the Buccaneers late on Friday evening and initially denied that he had accepted a job elsewhere.

However, the Serbian was announced as Zamalek coach by the club president Mortada Mansour.

Sredojevic said at his unveiling: "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.

"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."

Zamalek are the current holders of the CAF Confederation Cup.
