Serb Milosevic appointed Bosnia coach

Former Serbia striker Savo Milosevic was appointed coach of Bosnia and Herzogovina on Friday, their third manager since the start of a floundering Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

Milosevic, 50, succeeds Meho Kodro, who was appointed in August and sacked after two qualifying matches. Kodro’s predecessor Faruk Hadzibegic was dismissed in June, just five months after his appointment.

“I sincerely believe that this team can get a place at the Euros, that it has enough quality to be there,” Milosevic told a press conference.

Bosnia struggled to a 2-1 win over Liechtenstein earlier this month before losing to Iceland 1-0, a defeat which sealed Kodro’s fate.

Edin Dzeko and Miralem Planic’s side are fifth in Group J with six points from as many games, and are 12 points behind group leaders Portugal, and seven adrift of second-placed Slovakia. 

Milosevic, a former Partizan Belgrade and Aston Villa forward, began his coaching career at Partizan (2019-2020), before briefly coaching the Slovenian team Olimpija Ljubljana in 2022.
