Ljajic excluded from Serbia’s national team

Serbia manager Dick Advocaat held a press conference this morning and suprised everybody by conceding that he has left Roma’s Adem Ljajic and Dortmund’s Neven Subotic out of the team and, as of now, both players will play no part with the Serbian national team.

“My exchange of mails and text messages with Subotic has left no doubt that he doesn’t like playing for the national team. That being the case, I think it’s best to keep players with such an attitude away from the squad to prevent them from disrupting the good atmosphere we have. Ljajic is a good player but he has a different mentality and I am looking for players with the right mentality. So far I’ve seen that almost everyone is happy to be in the squad and I have no need for players who don’t have a good feeling about the national team.”
