Sartid chief demands top three finish
Tuesday 2nd July 2002
Sartid Smederevo director Cedomir Jeftic demanded a repeat of last year's successes in a pre-season address to the squad on Tuesday.
Sartid finished third behind Partizan Belgrade and Red Star Belgrade last term, earning them qualification for the Uefa Cup.
Speaking ahead of the team's first pre-season training session, Jeftic called for another top three finish in the Yugoslav first division as well as progress in Europe.
"I wish you to repeat the historic events of last season," he said. "Our ambitions must be on the same level as last season.
"Concerning our participation in the Uefa Cup a lot of things depend on who we get in the first round if we can beat the Welsh team (Bangor City) in our qualification match."
Sartid fans who turned up to watch their heroes put through their paces were boosted by the appearance of key midfielder Boris Vaskovic, his proposed move to Red Star Belgrade having apparently collapsed.
Also present were trialists Arsen Marjan from Zvezdara Belgrade and Sinisa Ninkovic from Zeleznik Belgrade.
Sartid will begin their preparations for the new season at their training centre in Smederevo before spending a week in the mountain complex near Cacak.
Six friendly matches have been arranged on home soil with the club's management also considering offers to face two Polish teams.
Meanwhile, Sartid's stadium will be upgraded to a seated capacity of 16,800 during the summer while extensive work is also planned on the playing surface, which was criticised for being too muddy last season.
Looks as if Sartid are becoming more and more serious, this just makes everything all the more interesting...
Rad's preparations for the new season continue to be undermined by uncertainty over which players will still be at the club next season. Sladjan Nikolic and captain Aleksandar Rankovic have been linked with Red Star and Partizan respectively, but both are holding out in the hope of attracting interest from a foreign side.
Rad's problems have been increased by the fact that they have been unable to train on their own ground because of development work, forcing them to practise with second division Sindjelic.
After completing their programme there, coach Zvonko Varga will take his players to a training camp at Vlasina, where Red Star are training at the moment.
Varga had tried to bring in two Brazilians for a trial, but their transfers look doomed after one player arrived late, and the other remained in Brazil to celebrate the World Cup triumph.
