Serbian goalkeeper gets death threats

A former goalkeeper for Red Star Belgrade has been receiving
death threats after signing with bitter rival Partizan.

Red Star fans have published an obituary on a sports forum
website following Vladimir Stojkovic’s move days ago from Sporting
Lisbon.

Stojkovic said Tuesday he understands how Red Star fans feel,
”but publishing my obituary is a bit too much.” He says he will
not hire bodyguards.

Stojkovic played for Wigan on loan from Sporting in the English
Premier League last season. He played for Serbia at the World Cup,
but has asked to be omitted from the national team until he is
playing better.
