Dujkovic fired as Serbia U21 coach - report

Published on: 13 August 2010

Ex-Ghana coach Ratomir Dujkovic has been fired as the coach of the Serbia U21 team following the side’s recent unimpressive showing.

According to a report in the Belgrade daily newspaper Blic, Dujkovic and his opposite number in charge of the Serbian national A team Ratomir Antic will be told of the decision on Friday. The report says the terminations of their contracts will become official today at a meeting in Belgrade’s Hyatt Hotel.

According to a report in the Belgrade daily newspaper Blic, Dujkovic and his opposite number in charge of the Serbian national A team Ratomir Antic will be told of the decision on Friday.

“The Executive Committee’s meeting was scheduled at short notice for two reasons. Firstly, the complete situation at the Belgrade Football Association needs to be scrutinised, and secondly, the committee members will review the status of Serbia senior team coach Radomir Antic and that of the U-21 team, Ratomir Dujkovic,” the Serbian FA’s official statement read.

The organization fired the coach of the Under-21 team, Dujkovic, over his squad's poor showing in qualifications for the young players' Euro next year.

Dujkovic was in charge of Ghana when they qualified for their first World Cup appearance in 2006 in Germany.

But he jumped ship claiming he was hounded out of his position by the local media before accepting a bumper deal in China.

He was fired by the Chinese before he returned home to lead their U21 side.

    Poor Doya.His career has been on the fall since desserting GH for China's offer.He's not succeeded in any venture yet.This makes me think Milo is a wise man.He is future looking and not thinking about short-term benefits.He can build a good CV with GH than with his own country or elsewhere.

    ace you should rather shup up. doya should rather be compared to coach odartey lamptey and not milo. look at the players doya had and compare them to what milo used both in nations cup and world cup and compare their achievements. where did doya reach in egypt and world cup 2006. at the time doya had the best midfiled you can get in appiah, laryea, essien and suley who were at their peak. if milo had had even essien in his squad at both events he would have brought the nations cup home and reached the finals of the world cup.
