First with the option to play for them, came from Serbia’s national team coach, Vesellin Vukovic, who said that contemplating that Karabatic is born in Nis, all the formalities would be done very fast and he would gain the citizenship at fastest possible.
The latest speculation say that Karabatic through his manager contacted that leading persons in the Montenegrin Handball Federation, and that this information was confirmed for “Dnevne Novine” by the general secretary, Predrag Pavicevic.
