Goran Tufegdzic, Kuwait's national football squad coach, is in critical condition after being shot at in a dispute with his neighbour in eastern Serbia, a daily newspaper reported Sunday.

Tufegdzic, a 41-year old Serbian citizen spending holidays in his hometown of Pozarevac, was shot in the thorax. He underwent surgery but has still remained in a critical condition, hospital sources told the daily Vecernje Novosti.

His attacker, an 86-year-old neighbour, was arrested, the daily added.

After playing for a local club Mladi Radnik Pozarevac, Tufegdzic became its coach. He was later appointed for an assistant coach for Kuwait's national squad, before replacing his superior in 2009.

In 2010, the squad won the Golf Cup and Western Asian Championship.
