Media sources reported that the Libyan Football  Federation decided to appoint Serbian coach Milutin Sredojevic, Micho, as manager of the national team.

Micho, who is 54 years old, has extensive experience in African countries for more than twenty years, as he has coached several clubs, including (Ugandan Villa, Ethiopian St. George, Sudanese Al Hilal, and Egyptian Al Zamalek), in addition to call coaching several national teams, such as Rwanda and Zambia.

The qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup finals will be the first challenge faced by Micho, as Libya is going to compete in the fourth group with Cameroon, Angola, Cape Verde, Eswatini and Mauritius; the winner of which will directly qualify for the finals, while the second-ranked team will compete for a place in the playoffs.

The position of the coach of the national team has been vacant since the dismissal of the national coach, Hamdi Batao, last June after Libya losing the chance to qualify for the 2024 African Cup of Nations in Côte d'Ivoire.
