Zvezda will be battling Partizan on Saturday in the 153rd Derby. As in any big derby, there are expectations and drama. Despite being three days away, the match that has yet to be played is causing controversy due to the impromptu change of referee.
Instead of world renown Milorad Mažić, this match will be arbitrated by Majo Vujović, a relatively unknown name of the fields.
Mažić has reportedly given up on his position, which had been foreseen days ago, given that he represents the most qualified referee of the country.
This news of change (or at least new arbitration) is creating plenty of discussion, while leaving part of the Serbian public questioning the regularity of Saturday’s Derby, played at the Rajko Mitić Stadium.
