Pitch side TV presenter deemed 'too attractive' for players to concentrate

Pitch Mystery Faces

No not Adrian Chiles, but 25-year-old Katarina Sreckovic who presents a show about Serbian side Red Star Belgrade.

A Red Star Belgrade television presenter has been asked to stay away from pitch side after their players stated they could not concentrate. Katarina Sreckovic who describes the role as her dream job was thought to be attractive that players were being put off in her presence.

Good looks can get you far in life, but Katarina very nearly lost hers because of it. A big part of Katarina's job is to interview Red Star Belgrade players, but she was unable to get many words out of them at first.

"I admit it was a problem at the start but I think they've got used to me now,' she said. 'It was tough though because for a while it seemed as if they might not be able to work with me at all."

"I was also asked to go away a couple of times because I was a distraction on the pitch, and players complained that they couldn't concentrate."

It is a rather different proposition for players in England who are usually faced with Adrian Chiles, Roy Keane, and Jonathan Pearce who can be sometimes a scary prospect.
