Overview: Serbs traditionally provided a string of national team players when their country was still part of the former Yugoslavia, and the flow of talent continues. Winger Milos Krasic helped his Russian club, CSKA Moscow, reach the quarterfinals of the European Champions League this season, while striker Milan Jovanovic has been banging in goals with enough frequency to attract the attention of Liverpool. Antic brings with him the experience of having coached the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. -- Grahame L. Jones
