Former Red Star Belgrade goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic has been
receiving death threats after signing for bitter rivals
Red Star fans have published an obituary on a sports forum
website following Stojkovic’s move earlier this week from Sporting
”I understand Red Star fans, but publishing my obituary is a
bit too much,” Stojkovic said on Tuesday.
Stojkovic, who played for Wigan on loan from Sporting in the
English Premier League last season, said he will not hire
bodyguards despite the death threats. He played for Serbia at the
World Cup, but has asked to be omitted from the national team until
he regains form.
