Veljko Paunovic - Chicago Fire - gesturing

After leading the Chicago Fire up from the Eastern Conference cellar into the Knockout Round of the 2017 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs, could Veljko Paunovic be headed for an international coaching job?

Reporter Paul Tenorio of FourFourTwo tweeted on Monday --- citing a previous tweet from Serbian journalist Aca Stojanović -- that Paunovic was being considered to coach Serbia in next year's FIFA World Cup.

Former coach Slavoljub Muslin was sacked on Monday despite Serbia's successful qualification to Russia 2018.
