  2. Here you can find an interesting Red Star Belgrade banner: http://sport.blic.rs/crvena-zvezda/vesti/231512/Riznic-Mnogi-fudbaleri-piju-kao-Jovanovic-ali-se-kriju
    Its Serbian Cyrilic meaning “Rizna (nickname of the player) Cheers!”

    Here you can scroll down for a better pic of it:

    The story behind it: Zoran Riznić aka Rizna was a quality player in mid 90’s, well known for his drinking habits. He was supposed to play for some kind of World XI in Russia back then, but didn’t show up for the departure. Urban myth goes that he drank himself unconscious, but he claims it was just a matter of misunderstanding (he talks about it in the second article). Anyway, he never tried to hide his habits and got sacked rather soon after coming drunk to a training yet again.

    Rizna is still held in high esteem here and media occasionally like to make a story about him and remind us of those days.
