Former Serbia international Mihajlovic dies at 53

Former Serbia international-turned-coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has died of leukemia at the age of 53, his family said in a statement on Friday.

His wife Arianna and their five children deplored the "unjust and premature death" of Mihajlovic who played for numerous clubs in Italy and competed in the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championships.

He later became a coach, largely in Serie A, most recently with Bologna.
