Zvezda finds new coach in Alimpijevic
Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade reached an agreement with head coach Dusan Alimpijevic, who signed a three-year contract with the Serbian powerhouse on Friday. Alimpijevic, 31 years old, arrives from FMP Belgrade, which he led to the Serbian League finals last season. He started his coaching career at age 22, working in Novi Sad and Vojvodina, where he made his head coaching debut. He also headed the bench for Spartak Subotica before joining FMP last April. Zvezda has announced that former Serbian basketball legend Milenko Topic will be the first team's assistant coach. "I want to thank everyone in the club and the president. I am extremely aware of what the name Crvena Zvezda means – its tradition, its system and its fans," Alimpijevic said. "I am satisfied to have the same staff who were with me in FMP: Slobodan Ljubotina, fitness trainer Aleksandar Jovancevic, as well as Milenko Topic, who will help us with his vast experience. We know what our goals are. We know that Zvezda must win. Therefore, we will be thinking in that direction."
