Serbo-Montenegrin rivals FK Sutjeska and OFK Beograd have appointed new coaches ahead of the coming season on 8 August following the end of their UEFA Intertoto Cup campaigns.
'Not possible to achieve more'
Sutjeska, who exited the Intertoto Cup at the second-round stage against Finnish side Tampere United, have replaced Branko Smiljanic with Slavenko Kuzeljevic. Smiljanic, who had signed a new contract last month, said: "It was not possible for me to take the club any further. But I am leaving an organised club and the new coach does not have to start from scratch."
Kozmanovski in charge
Meanwhile, OFK have given Dragoljub Bekvalac's job to his assistant Stevica Kuzmanovski after their Intertoto Cup second-round defeat by Czech side 1. FC Synot. "There was a minor disagreement about the future with the club's directors," Bekvalac said. "I am afraid that not much more can be achieved here without concrete changes."
