Former Chelsea midfielder Slavisa Jokanovic is new Partizan coach

Former Chelsea midfielder Slavisa Jokanovic is the new Partizan Belgrade coach.
Jokanovic was named Tuesday to replace Miroslav Djukic, a former Yugoslavia defender who earlier this month resigned as Partizan coach and is widely tipped to take over Serbia's national team.
This will be the first coaching position for the 39-year-old Jokanovic who played for Chelsea in the 2000-01 season. He also played for Partizan and Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna in the 1990s.
Partizan leads the domestic league standings, six points ahead of crosstown rival Red Star Belgrade.
