Drulovic Wants Serbia In 2016 Euro Championships

Serbia’s national team manager Ljubinko Drulović has revealed that he wants to help the team get to the European championships 2016. Serbia have a wealth of established talent like Branislav Ivanovic and Alexander Kolarov, but they failed to get to the World Cup 2014 as a result of poor qualifying campaign, which was also marred by several run-ins with UEFA. The team is now entirely focused on qualifying for Euro 2016 after the appointment of Drulović as the new manager. As he prepares his team for a friendly against the Republic of Ireland, Drulović has revealed his ultimate motto.


Serbia’s national team manager Ljubinko Drulović has revealed that he wants to help the team get to the European championships 2016. Serbia have a wealth of established talent like Branislav Ivanovic and Alexander Kolarov, but they failed to get to the World Cup 2014 as a result of poor qualifying campaign, which was also marred by several run-ins with UEFA. The team is now entirely focused on qualifying for Euro 2016 after the appointment of Drulović as the new manager. As he prepares his team for a friendly against the Republic of Ireland, Drulović has revealed his ultimate motto.

The 45-year-old says that he wants to improve the team in every area of the pitch. According to him, the match against Ireland, who themselves have a new manager in the form of Martin O’Neill, will be a good preparation for the upcoming European championships qualifying stages. Serbia have been grouped alongside the likes of Denmark, Portugal, and Albania in the group stages. This gives them a great chance to qualify for the Euro 2016 since a maximum of three teams can realistically hope for qualification.

Drulović has claimed that his coaching career has been progressing in the right path, but he expects a difficult job ahead. He says that Ireland will be posing a threat towards the rebuilding with their threat from set pieces.
“My coaching career is going in the right direction. The last World Cup qualifying campaign didn’t go well for us but I am here to help Serbia try to qualify for Euro 2016.

We can expect some danger from set-pieces. From corner-kicks and free-kicks, Ireland will be strong because they have big, physical players,” said Drulović. “Every week in England, we face the Irish players. It is also difficult to play against those strong guys,” said Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov
