FYROM’s national football side is looking for a new coach, which will replace the sacked coach, Bosko Djurkovski. The football association is holding talks with several known coaches, but no agreement has been reached yet.

Italian coach, Gianfranco Zola is one of the pretenders, but the deal is difficult to be reached, due to his high salary. His last contract was with Cagliari and he was paid 700 thousand Euros a season, while so far, the association has hired coaches with salaries of 150 thousand a season. The association says that the financial side of things make it difficult to choose a known coach. The last coach, Djurovski was paid a minimum salary compared to former coaches such as John Tosak and Stretko Katanec, who were paid 150 thousand Euros a year.

Another potential candidate is the Serb coach Milovan Raevac. This association is holding talks with other coaches too, but their names are yet to be made public. /ibna/
