Dejan Stankovic is officially the new Udinese assistant manager to Andrea Stramaccioni. “I am very proud.”
The pair worked together at Inter with Stankovic in midfield, but he has since retired and will learn the ropes at the Stadio Friuli.
“I am very proud to be here starting this new adventure,” the Serbian told Udinese Channel.
“First of all I want to thank the club for giving me this opportunity to learn and pass on my hunger, grit and experience to a pretty young squad that really wants to prove itself.
“I also thank Coach Stramaccioni for his faith in me. Our rapport at Inter was already strong from the first day, we really understood each other straight away.
“I like his ideas and his football, so I hope to give him a helping hand.”
