ImageDusan Ivkovic, coach od Serbia national team, selected 14 out of 18 players that will continue preparations for the European championship in Poland. After Luka Bogdanovic had to quit the team because of back injury, Ivkovic decided to cut Ivan Radenovic, Marko Keselj and Boban Marjanovic. Serbia will travel to Germany on Friday and will play two matches against the hosts on saturday in Braunschweig and sunday in Dessau.

Ivkovic`s decision to cut Boban Marjanovic, 227 cm tall center of Hemofarm, came as a suprise.

– I had to choose between him and Miroslav Raduljica. I decided this way because Raduljica has better footwork, speed and defensive game – Ivkovic explained.

Dusan Kecman
