The News Minute| November 10, 2014| 13.52 pm IST Footballers these days have bizarre problems. The latest excuse for lack of concentration on field is a woman’s beauty. Wonder if this is a compliment or an insult. Katarina Sreckovic, a TV host in Serbia almost lost her job because players of the Red Star Belgrade team complained that she was too beautiful and it was thus hard to focus on either the game or practice, reports the LA Times. She was even asked to stay off the sidelines during a couple of games because the footballers protested that her presence was distracting. During interviews, the players would fail to complete sentences or would just stare at her without answering! Fighting with her employers, she says, "I admit it was a problem at the start, but I think they've got used to me now. It was tough, though, because for a while it seemed as if they might not be able to work with me at all.” Well, hope the players have by now got over this ‘distraction’ and earned some points for the team.
