Crvena Zvezda's European dreams were shattered as they finished last in Group G of the Champions League, ending their journey in Europe in an untimely fashion. The defeat against Young Boys extinguished any hope of moving on to the knockout stage of the Europa League. The team's performance this season, marked by a string of losses, has led to increased scrutiny of its leadership, particularly head coach Barak Bahar.
Time for a Change in Leadership?
Ranko Stoji, a professional consultant for 'Arena Sport' TV, has suggested that a change in leadership could be the catalyst the team needs to get back on a winning streak. Stoji believes that Crvena Zvezda requires a coach who understands the intricacies of Serbian football and aligns with the club's mentality. Among his recommendations for the new coach is Vladan Milojevi, a figure well-loved by Zvezda fans. Milojevi's professionalism and character have been lauded by Stoji, who sees him as the perfect fit for the team.
Other Potential Contenders
In addition to Milojevi, Stoji has also commended TSC coach Zarko Lazeti as an excellent choice. However, this recommendation may be met with resistance from Zvezda fans due to Lazeti's perceived affiliation with rival team Partizan.
Other Football Updates
In other football news, Partizan's youth team has made it to the European competition, an achievement that unfortunately did not receive televised coverage. On the international front, Thomas Tuchel, coach of Chelsea, has expressed interest in acquiring a player from Barcelona. As the world of football continues to evolve, these narratives remind us of the sport's ever-changing dynamics and the passion that fuels it.
