Serbia: Soccer player banned from national team over anthem



Via RFE/RL:
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."
