Partizan signed Djordje Ivanovic from Spartak Subotica today.
He was best Spartak player this season and voted league`s MVP by fellow players and coaches. Ivanovic scored 11 goals this season and helped Spartak occupy third position in the standings.
− Negotiations were going on for a month and I couldn`t sleep peacefully. When it finished yesterday, It was much easier, I was able to sleep nicely.
If you want to have a fine career you have to play in Partizan, and I`m after big career. That`s why I`m here. I want to leave a great legacy and I know I will, says Ivanovic.
I love challenges and pressure suits me and leads me forward. I prefer to play as a forward but I`ll do whatever boss wants from me. I can play attacking winger too.
Ivanovic. Partizan Sports Director Ivica Iliev on latest signing:
− Ivanovic caused a stir this transfer window and he is a player who stands out this season. It was logical for him to sing for us although he had more lucrative offers but he wasn`t bargaining around. When the negotiations started, he gave his word that he will be playing for Partizan and withstood all the pressure around him. Ivanovic didn`t rush t go abroad and I expect great things from him. He is future of Partizan and Serbian national team.
