Dragan Džajić has been elected as the new Football Association of Serbia (FSS) president for the next four years.
As the only candidate, the new man at the helm was elected unanimously at the FSS's sports centre where the assembly was held.
Top scorer at the 1968 UEFA European Championship, Džajić is considered one of his country's greatest ever players and was bestowed with the accolade of his nation's 'Golden Player' of the 20th century in the UEFA Jubilee celebrations. He also won 36 trophies at club level.
The FSS also voted in its first female executive committee vice-president, Sandra Sremčević, the president of Crvena zvezda's women's team.
Following his election, Džajić said: "I am proud and honoured to have the opportunity to lead Serbian football. I believe that together we can successfully manage Serbian football and take it to an even higher level.
"Of course, the measure of the association's work in the eyes of the public is the national football team. We will do our best to be a regular participant in the biggest competitions, and then to make a breakthrough and truly shine in these competitions after a long time. At this moment, the priority is to qualify for the European Championship and achieve success there."
