Soccer Player Banned From Serbia Team Over Anthem
Radio Free Europe
Serbia's football federation says new national team coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has kicked player Adem Ljajic off the team for refusing to sing Serbia's national anthem.
Ljajic, a member of Serbia's Muslim minority, refused to sing ahead of the May 26 friendly with Spain, which Serbia lost 2-0.
Ljajic, who plays for Italian club Fiorentina, said he would not sing the anthem in the future because of "personal reasons."
