Sasa Ilic, the legendary captain of Partizan, will take over Cukaricki and it will be his first club in his independent coaching career.
Only a day after the cooperation with Dušan Đorđević was terminated, the management of Čukarički was looking for a young, promising expert, and the search did not last long. The choice fell on the former midfielder of Partizan and numerous European clubs – Sasa Ilić.
It remains to be seen how the situation with Ilic and the Football Association of Serbia will unfold, given that he is currently the cadet selector, so it is clear that he will not be able to sit on two chairs.

Sasa Ilic, a former football master, is currently 43 years old and has so far led the U16 and U18 national teams of Serbia, he also played the role of team manager of the “A” national team, so it is clear that he is ready to work on Banovo brdo, with one extremely young and a promising club, such as Cukaricki, will start coaching.
As it is speculated, and the official confirmation should arrive soon, Sasa Ilic and Cukaricki will sign a two-year contract. He will make his debut on the bench of “Brđani” on Saturday, when the club is a guest in Radnički from Kragujevac in the match of the fifth round of the Serbian Super League.
It should be reminded that Djordjevic left Cukaricki on Monday, after the club had previously tied several worse results in the Serbian Super League, and was eliminated by Hammarby in the qualifications for the Conference League.
