Svetislav Pesic has multi-year contract with Crvena Zvezda Diva and Nebojsa Covic president of Crvena Zvezda Diva said that there were three reasons to let Pesic to coach German NT.

Nebojsa Covic says: “One of reasons is that is great honor for all of us in Crvena Zvezda Diva that our coach will also coach German National team.”
