Is Radovic leaning towards playing for Poland?


Miroslav Radovic has denied many times that he's interested in playing for the Polish national team, but Serbian newspaper "Sport" reported this week that there's a chance that the Legia Warszawa midfielder could end up playing for Poland.

"I dream about the Serbian national team and there's nothing more important, but I could be hundred times better or score hundred goals, and their (Serbian) national team coaches won't care," Radovic told the Serbian newspaper.

"Since I can't realize that dream, it's possible that I'll accept a chance to play for the Polish national team, and I could possibly make my debut during these European qualifiers," Radovic said.

The news comes as a surprise to some after Radovic has expressed many times that only Polish players should play for the Polish national team and that he feels Serbian. He even rejected a chance to play for the Montenegrin national team a few years back.

The 30-year-old has been living in Poland since 2006 when he joined Legia Warszawa. He was granted Polish citizenship in January 2014.

It's either two things: Radovic is telling the Serbian media one thing and the Polish media another thing, or the Serbian media is making stuff up.
