Radovan Curcic will lead Serbia on an interim basis for two friendlies next month following Vladimir Petrovic's decision to resign last week.
• Petrovic quits after Euro flop
Petrovic's decision came in the wake of his side's Euro 2012 qualifying failure. The 1-0 defeat to Slovenia meant Serbia missed out on a play-off place after finishing third in Group C behind runaway leaders Italy and second-placed Estonia.
After a meeting of the Serbian FA's (FSS) executive board, it was announced Curcic, previously Petrovic's assistant, will stand in for the two games against as-yet unnamed opponents, allowing more time to find a full-time successor.
"The FSS has appointed Radovan Curcic as the interim coach for the national team's two friendlies in November against opponents yet to be determined,'' a statement from the Serbian FA said. "The new coach will be named after elections within the FSS.''
