FK Partizan presented three transfer window signings today, defenders Pesukic, Vujacic and Dinga.
21-year-old Dominik Dinga is Serbian defender signed from Russian outfit Ural. He picked shirt number 67:
-I was over the moon when I heard Partizan wants to sign me. This is such a big club. I also have a great desire to play for Serbian national team again and I believe playing for Partizan will help me out. In Ural, there was six of us playing the same position but I still managed 30 apps in Russian league in total. It was a great experience for me, said Dinga.
Boss Savo Milosevic on Dinga:
-He`s a really great lad. We plan to have our defensive line quite high up and we need pace in that department. We also want our defenders to be involved, not to opt for long balls. Dinga knows all about this.
Montenegrin Perisa Pesukic (21) is a right-back who played last six months for Buducnost Podgorica, previously for Rudar Plevlja:
Ovom prilikom bih želeo da se zahvalim šefu stručlnog štaba Branku Brnoviću i njegovim saradnicima, pričali smo, dao mi je samo pozitivne komentare i nekoliko saveta. Postoji mali pritisak, ali na meni je da se dokažem, kako kroz trening, tako i kroz utakmice, da uradim sve kroz treninge i utakmice da dođem do prvog tima
-I`d like to thank my previous coach Branko Brnovic and his associates to whom I talked about my move and they gave me a bit of advice and lots of positive comments on Partizan. I`m under a bit of pressure now but it`s on me to prove myself here, to train well and have a good pre-season to reach the starting line-up, said Pesukic.
Centre-back Igor Vujacic, also from Montenegro, signed to Partizan from Zeta. He also played for Montenegrin outfit Mogren and had a bit of Serbian football experience back in 2013 while in Vojvodina:
N-As soon I heard Partizan is interested in signing me I just wanted to get here. Luckily, negotiations turned out good and here I am. I believe we can win domestic double and reach Europa League group stage this season.
I feel certain amount pressure but I believe I`ll be able to handle it. There`s some stiff competition here but that`s not going to phase me, it`s on boss Milosevic to pick the right team. I made my Montenegro national team debut, now I signed for Partizan – that`s two dreams achieved, said Vujacic.
Savo Milosevic on two new Montenegrins:
-I have lots of friends in Montenegro and I feel they are all my own people. Therefore, you might call me subjective, but there`s things that make Montenegrins standout performers – their character is so firm and strong, it helps them handle the pressure better.
