But yes completely agree about the communication issue.
A big part of being a manager is communicating what you want your players to do, explain if you’re not playing someone etc.
His problems with Nastasic for example stem from him not letting him know anything about not taking him to the World Cup.

i think krstajic lacks what is most important in leadership today and this is communication skills. you could see that also off the field after his the hague comparison. you simply don't do that as a coach, you don't articulate such thoughts.
in regard of that, the one who convinces me most is paunovic. he as also comes with a cosmopolitan attitude and is a bug communicator and he uses modern technology to rate players and their performances from what i saw on youtube about NZ 2015.

Gacinovic is our best ball winner from our attacking players and it's not even close. Then he randomly calls him up and probably has never had a complete conversation with the guy.
I highly doubt it was Krstajic's decision to put him in the starting lineup anyways. He's just a puppet which is why they brought in a team strategist to help him make lineup changes
I mean this guy was literally asking players which substitutions he should make.
Which brings me to the point. This team severely lacks player leadership. Kolarov is the type of person that just says "grow up, be a man"
He doesn't know how to give advice nor does he represent a leadership role on the pitch. He knows how to yell and complain but not offer solutions. His comments to the media have also been historically bad such as the "Montenegrin" ones... as a 33 year old man.
We forget that Gacinovic is just a kid. He's a very passionate person, and he plays like that on the pitch. He will learn from this and grow just like Mitrovic did. There are multiple ways to look at this. While he was most definitely in the wrong, I can understand his frustrations.
BUT...By complaining about coming off at halftime, you're practically saying that your teammates are a$$. This won't be a good outlook for him going forward in the locker room or
Especially since he followed up with "I wish I was the only problem in the team"
There's just no reason for this and clearly his agents are pushing this. LIAN Sports is a HUGE agency for our footballers. They usually pick up some of the best young guys. They definitely have a lot of control over the NT and we all know how easily influenced our FA is by money. Which is the only reason I could see Krstajic losing his job. Otherwise, our FA would love to keep him around because they probably pay him pennies for the head coaching position while pocketing the rest.
Saying all this, Gacinovic should feel fortunate that he is starting in the first place, we have a lot of talented players, and he's not even a standard player for his club at times. He really needs to learn from his dad and to become more thankful in life.
Also, Kolarov has no room to talk. Gacinovic has won more NT prestigious tourneys than Kolarov can ever dream of. So, he looks like an idiot off the bat. Second, he spent the prime of his career on the bench. Not really one to speak and he's clearly not a good leader if that's how he handles a situation like this.
Clearly, Kolarov is looking for a career in the Serbian FA after his football career. He even got Bane kicked off the NT. A guy who has historically always been better than him in every regard.
A future captain I am looking forward to is Milenkovic. He's an incredibly hard working young guy with a good head on his shoulders. I love his comment about this whole drama, and I love his leadership during the game. As long as he can stay healthy, wherever he goes, he will be a fan favorite like Vidic was.
Last, no chance in hell we get Piksi. The guy already clearly stated that his priority is his club football in China and that he is a man of his word when he signs a contract. So, there's that. Drulovic told the media that this is a horrible time to change coaches because of the NL success (even though I disagree that it's a success to win such a weak group). I highly doubt Jokanovic wants to deal with these corrupt bastards after a failure in the EPL, and he's highly rated elsewhere around Europe with potential to grow.

I think Krstajic's days are numbered and i am not sad about this. he has no charism of a good coach.
Besides, what do you guys think about the conspiracy think that is coming up now?
nastasic, milivojevic and gacinovic are all at LIAN sports and now there is a talking about a mutiny against krstajic initiated from this players agency.

It would be unsurprising if the leak is the FSS itself who will then use the reason that he’s lost the dressing room in sacking him and installing someone else.
Looks like it’s a matter of time.

Ga?inovi?: Daj Bo?e da sam ja najve?i problem u reprezentaciji
Love him or hate him, but guys like Mijat, Matic and Milivoje at least dare to speak out, whereas most others just stay quiet their entire lives.
I think kid has got heart and a bright future. Hopefully they don't freeze him out now.
|November 23rd, 2018 10:56|
Mijat needs to know his place, but obviously this was leaked with a reason like Zoki said. It's shameful what they're doing to the NT, no way of moving forward with this ****ing loser mentality..
Krstajic has to go though like Dule says, the whole Milivojevic thing backfired so bad it just proved to the squad he's nothing more than a puppet. Shame, cause like Savo, I used to respect the guy.
|November 23rd, 2018 10:04|
The players also have a responsability and not everything can be attributed solely to the coach. It's leaking too much from the players perspective as well. The old school authority is very rare these day. It's more about either working with each other or understanding each other in the end, not about projecting your anger for not playing well or being used in a certain way. There are more elements to this than what Žurnal describes.

These are internal things that should never leave the dressing room so someone has an interest for it to happen. There should be room for disappointment, anger and discussions. I'm even fine with throwing stuff like Gaćinović appearently threw his boots (let's face it, this industry hardly holds education highly) but never towards the person you're disappointed with or by calling your coach things openly. Dressing rooms in football are unfortunately not like other work places, especially when you have so many people from the outside constantly telling these players they're something they're not and the younger and higher up they are, the bigger the clashes. Sometimes it's a generational thing, other times it's just a matter of personal disappointment being projected towards other people. Players think they're the best at all times and they need that to perform every 3-4 day.
It's not the first incident for Gaćinović either btw. There was another one just prior or after the first game at the U20 World Cup (I can't remember the exact time it happened) which Paunović solved but where the etiquette was some sort of "stomach problem" where he was actually punished. Then there's the acusation of his agency making him stirr all sorts of things to make them control things better inside the NT - which we obviously can't confirm. Wouldn't surprise me if the interested party are using this to paint a picture of: "Look! Another case!"
Looks like Kolarov told Gaćinović: "Ko si ti? Koji si trofej osvojio u karijeri da te neko ne bi smeo da zameni?"
Krstajić did the only right thing. Serbia needed presence in the penalty area and scored four goals in the end.
I wonder if Mihajlović's "contracts" had a clause where the players couldn't spill information to the media? [emoji16]

It’s a wider issue though isn’t it? Krstajić holds absolutely no authority with anyone. Not even the younger players in the squad.
The players know he’s not running the show or won’t last long and they feel they can react how they want.
