Correct, Amoroso, though the player's name is Jovan Gojkovic not Goran Gojkovic; nik name is Cune (Tsune).

True, he is far from the shirt no 10 in the Yugo-national team. At one point he was close to it; he played in several friendly games with the Yugoslav team. In the season 1998/99 he was the best player of Red Star, but his last season was sporadic. He started in more than 50% of the games and scored 6 goals. He was injured for a month and was not ready for the spring season. He also had a tough competition to regain his starting position (Acimovic of Slovenia and especially Leo Lerinc, a new darling of Red Star fans).

Gojkovic is a midfielder, an excellent dribbler, maybe one of the best in Yugoslavia, and a good scorer. He is left-footed. However, he is a big soloist. In the last season when Red Star brought a new coach (Muslin) who promoted a fast and agressive game in the midfield with fewer ball touches, Gojkovic had hard time to adjust. You may compare him with Dragan Ciric, who is equally talented, but whose time in Barcelona and AEK was not very successful. I hope Gojkovic, who is more mature and less conceited than Ciric, has more success with Iraklis, because it will be also good for Yugoslav football.
