Stankovic rejects Serbian FA job

Former Inter and Lazio star Dejan Stankovic explains why he turned down the chance to become Serbian FA President.

The 35-year-old retired over the summer and had been offered the opportunity to lead the Federation in his homeland.

“There was the proposal and I evaluated it very carefully,” Stankovic told Sportske.

“At the moment I do not feel ready for such an important role.”

There had also been reports Stankovic would be offered the job of Serbian Coach after Sinisa Mihajlovic resigned to take over at Sampdoria.
