Bangladesh Shooting Sports Federation has decided to appoint former Serbian shooter Nemanja Mirosavljev as their new coach.
BSSF executive committee member and national camp commander Mushtaq Waise told The Daily Sun that the 50-year old coach is yet to confirm the deal with the BSSF.
“The executive committee has decided to appoint him as the coach of the national team for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. We are still on the table of discussion and he hasn’t confirmed anything yet,” he said on Monday.
“If he agrees, he may come in the first week of April. However, we have to pay him Euro 12,000 per month. It is a big amount for us. We will talk with Bangladesh Olympic Association about it,” he added.
Mirosavljev took part in the five editions of the Olympics in his career, under three different flags - Independent Olympic Participant, Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro.
He claimed bronze in ISSF World Championships in 2010 and two medals – bronze and silver in European Championships in 1991 and 2007 respectively.
The last foreign coach of Bangladesh shooting, Klavs Christensen from Denmark, left his job in the middle of the contract as BSSF failed to renew his contract due to the fund crisis.
Klavs, who signed a four-year deal in December 2016, returned to Denmark just after completing the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.
