midfielder Luka Milivojevic decided to quit the Serbia national team after being left out of the Serbian national team squad for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Milivojevic who has scored 1 goal in 38 national games, previously had clashes with the FA of Serbia in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. Following a 2-1 defeat to Switzerland, he criticized Mladen Krstajic in an interview but was called up to his country's national team for Euro 2020 qualifiers, although they failed to qualify. Now that he is not on the new list of the Serbian national team, he announced that he does not intend to continue working with the team.

"I want to thank the new coach for helping me make a decision which I've been contemplating for a while,"

Milivojevic told Belgrade daily newspaper Vecernje Novosti.

"I am definitely saying goodbye to my Serbia shirt at the age of 29 and I wish the national team the best of luck in their future endeavours."

"They accomplished their task of getting me out of the national team and I can only blame myself for not making this decision sooner," he said.

"I stuck around for the sake of the team as I believed things would get better. I hope they are proud of themselves."
