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.
