Antic calls off Serbian chase to play Bojan

New Serbia coach Radomir Antic admits he decided against asking Barcelona ace Bojan Krkic to join his squad as he does not want to cause any problems. Antic hinted on Monday he may attempt to persuade the uncapped teenager, who was born in Spain to a Serbian father and a Catalan mother and has represented Spain at both Under-17 and Under-21 level, to play for Serbia. However, both Spain coach Vicente del Bosque and Bojan himself have since insisted the player's future lies with the European champions, even though the 18-year-old was omitted from their latest squad on Friday. Responding to those comments from Del Bosque and Bojan, former Barcelona and Atletico Madrid coach Antic insists he is not looking to cause any waves. 'First, as a man I have a great friendship with Bojan's family, secondly as a coach, I value their virtues,' said Antic, who had spoken to Bojan's father, the former Red Star Belgrade player Bojan Krkic who is now a Barca scout, about the possibility of his son playing for Serbia. 'It would be great news if he decided to play with us,' added Antic in quotes reported by Marca. 'It's nothing against the Spanish national team. The squad list is finished, save two or three players, but I have not called up Bojan because I don't want problems.'
