Krasic has Juve mission

Milos Krasic can now fully focus on Juventus after Serbia failed to qualify for Euro 2012, his representative has stated.

The midfielder has struggled to impose himself on the Bianconeri side so far this season despite the importance of wingers in the tactics of boss Antonio Conte.

Nevertheless, Krasic will have only club football to think about for the rest of the season after his country lost 1-0 to Slovenia on Tuesday.

"Now that he has no more international commitments, you'll see that he will concentrate on winning the faith of Conte," Marko Naletillic told Tuttosport on Thursday.

"As soon as he re-finds some form he'll return to showing the kind of skills that he has in his possession."

The 26-year-old has scored one goal in four games for the Old Lady this season, but his overall performances have been mixed.

Krasic began 2010-11 in blistering fashion following his move from CSKA Moscow, but his performances then dipped.

Rumours persist that he may not actually be in the long-term plans of boss Conte after he was recently linked with a variety of clubs.
