Dragan Džajić, one of the best football players from this area of ​​all time, was elected unanimously, with 78 votes, as the president of the Football Association of Serbia at the session of the FSS Assembly.

Džajić was the only candidate because Nemanja Vidić withdrew his candidacy the day before the elections in the Alliance.

Having received a four-year mandate, the former first man of Red Star addressed the members of the Assembly.

“Dear members of the Assembly, thank you for your trust in the elections for the president of the Football Association of Serbia. I am proud and honored. I accepted this challenge because I think that together we can manage Serbian football and raise it to an even higher level. When I was a candidate, I said that I  I consider myself a responsible person and I want to fulfill and prove it with my team. I think there are many things we can improve. FSS’ benchmark is the national team and we will do everything to make it a regular in all competitions and shine after a long time. At this moment it is  the priority is to qualify for the Euro and achieve success there,” said Džajić and added:

“Football development needs to be expanded outside of Belgrade, and new stadiums are being built, and we are all waiting for the national one. We want better quality stadiums and pitches, we want to directly help the clubs. That progress will be easily noticeable due to better football and more fans. I am always  wanted the fans, and as a player, and we can achieve that only through games. The most responsible for success are the coaching staff and the players, but we are here to provide them with all the conditions and that’s how it will be.”

The new president also looked at the negative segments that make Serbian football not appreciated by fans and the general public.

“I know how many quality children we have and we must not allow them to fail. I believe that we can improve a lot there. We will try to strengthen all segments of the alliance and give everyone full autonomy and responsibility. The same goes for the regions. The leaders will have freedom,  and I especially point out that the referee organization will work independently. The association will be a barrier against attacks on them and they must be as professional as possible. It is the same with the coaching organization. I want to abolish clubism that leads to the development of petty interests and destruction. We will try to be an important part UEFA. We will follow the modernization of football that is happening and without which we have no progress. I do not have a magic wand and I have never promised towers to cities. I do not promise anyone, nor have I done that. I can give experience, knowledge and skill, and we will see how it will look. This is a rough plan that we will work on. I said that a gray head is needed, experience is an advantage in whatever one does. I honestly mean it, I just ask that we have patience in the beginning to understand  let’s look at each problem from different angles. My family is a big support for me, I have a lot of trust in my colleagues,” concluded Džajić.
