Uefa seeks harsher sanctions against Serbia



Europe's governing body Uefa has lodged an appeal against sanctions for Serbia over incidents in an under-21 match against England, seeking harsher punishment, the Serbian football organisation FSS said on Wednesday.

The under-21 Euro qualifier played in October 2012 game in Krusevac was marred by a brawl of players and staff. England also alleged that its players were racially abused by the crowd.

Serbia was in December sanctioned by Uefa to play one game behind closed doors and fined €80,000.

The FSS said that Uefa'S disciplinary inspector Jean-Samuel Leuba has asked for an expulsion of Serbia's young squad from the next competition cycle and a larger fine of €200,000.

He also proposed a worldwide five-year suspension of coaching staff member Andreja Milutinovic, instead of two years plus two years probation, FSS said on its website.

Finally, Serbia's player Nikola Ninkovic should be suspended from the next three matches. Ninkovic was not punished in the initial ruling, delivered on December 13.Author: Boris Babic
