A fullback and free kick specialist, Mihajlovic was on the Red Star Belgrade team that won the European Cup in 1991.

The ex-Yugoslavia defender, who won the European Cup with Red Star Belgrade as a player in 1991, first announced he had leukaemia in 2019.

He won 63 international caps between 1991 and 2003, representing the former Yugoslavia at the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.

Javier Zanetti, who played with Mihajlovic at Inter Milan, said: "He was a good friend and now he is gone. He has done so much for football - big hug to his family."
