Aleksandar Djordjevic takes over Serbian National Team

Aleksandar Djordjevic is the new head coach of the Serbian national team. He replaces Dusan Ivkovic who stepped down after the European Championship this summer.

Aleksandar Djordjevic won almost everything as a player for the Yugoslav- and later Serbian national team, and was also very successful with his club teams Partizan, Milano, Bologna, Portland Trailblazers, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Scavolini Pesaro.

He retired at the end of the 2005/2006 season and started his coaching career with Milano in Italy. His last club was Bennetton Treviso during the 2011/2012 season.

One of the main challenges Aleksandar Djordjevic will be facing is how to get the best Serbian players together. That proved to be impossible in recent years. Players were either injured, or non-responsive to their invitations to play for the national team. Fatigue, after a long season, was often a factor but sometimes it was also a troubled personal relationship with Dusan Ivkovic who was the head coach at that time.
