Former RCD Espanyol midfielder Branko Brnović was "proud and delighted" after being named as assistant to the first Montenegro national team coach Zoran Filipović.
The 40-year-old, who scored three goals in 27 appearances for Yugoslavia and played under Filipović with the national team at the 1998 FIFA World Cup, said: "I am proud and delighted to be a member of technical staff and to work with Filipović again. I am sure that we will do a good job and get good results."
This will be one-time FK Partizan star Brnović's first foray into coaching after hanging up his boots in the winter following a spell with FK Kom Podgorica. He will join goalkeeping coach Zoran Lemajić, formerly of Sporting Clube de Portugal, among Filipović's back-room staff.
"I have complete faith in my assistants," said the coach. "I know them well. I worked with Brnović in the Yugoslavia team and Lemajić was my rival - when I was coach at [SL] Benfica he was goalkeeper at Sporting. I chose them because they international experience and know how to make our national team stronger."
