Coach Pesic is currently leading Red Star Belgrade to the playoff finals of the serbian league against Partizan, if they go through FMP Zeleznik. Pesic is a highly decorated coach and his contract with Red Star is said to finish this June.
According to the article the administration of Real are not happy with the progress of the team under Plaza's guidance and they are planning a rigorous restructuring of the team.
