Yugoslavia sack Djoric
Milovan Djoric
Djoric paid the price for poor results
Yugoslav national football coach Milovan Djoric has been sacked by the Yugoslav Football Federation (FSJ), the Tanjug news agency reported on Monday.

Djoric paid the price for a series of poor results during qualifiers for the 2002 World Cup, notably their 1-0 home defeat at the end of last month to Russia.

The position will be shared temporarily by coaches Vujadin Boskov and Ivan Curkovic, along with international midfielder Dejan Savicevic, currently playing with Austrian side Rapid Vienna.

The trio will lead the Yugoslav team during their upcoming WC2002 qualifying ties against Russia on 2 June and the Faroe Islands on 6 June, after which a new coach will be appointed.
