Players that were ignored by Katanec and were never given a chance:

Nderim Nedzipi - was constantly ignored due to his issues with the assistant coach who seemed bigger than Katanec when the team was creating
Filip Ivanovski - the bomber in the Polish league was ignored even he was scoring and scoring and scoring...
Mirsad Mijadinoski - although Katanec had problems with the back wings, he preferred attacking midfielders to play in the back instead of calling Mirsad
Jorde Georgievski - was called couple of times but was never given a chance to play at least few minutes
Armend Alimi - the former motor of the U-21 national team was constantly ignored although he would have at least tried to refresh the poor mid
Filip Despotovski - the defensive midfielder surely deserved at least to be tested on a friendly
Zlatko Tanevski - the only Macedonian who played in the UEFA Cup with success was also ignored
Sasa Ognenovski - the Australian born Macedonian wasn't ignored by Katanec, but because the laziness of the FA he never played

With all these results, we can say that Katanec's performances were nothing more than just average. He is the second best Macedonian national team coach behind the legendary Gjoko Hadzievski who was very close to advance into the play-offs for the World Cup 1998. Katanec finished the EURO 2008 qualifications on the 5th place, far, far away from the places that were leading on the main tournament. His second qualifications are left unfinished and some other coach will end it starting with the home games against Norway and Iceland in June.
