Partizan's fans started chanting derogatorily against Vesna Covic. She is the wife of Nebojsa Covic, the president of Crvena Zvezda and owner of the FMP.

Coach Zeljko Obradovic confronted the fans, pointing and screaming at them. After the game, he addressed it in the post-game press conference.

"I came back here to work after a long time, and I said at the introductory Partizan press conference how I would behave and how I would try to influence my players, people who work at Partizan, and the fans. Whether I can do it or not is another question. I always tried to behave correctly."

She is not the president's wife, but the wife of a criminal who is the president of the FMP basketball club, when he renamed the Red Star Belgrade basketball club with criminal actions with the help of the authoritarian regime of Aleksandar Vučić.
