Many times he saved Partizan net but even the best ones have such moments they would like to forget and wish such things never happen again. Partizan players stood by keeper Filip Kljajic after his 22nd minute blunder and bravely battled with Olympiacos all the way through to win a respectable two-all draw in front of 25 thousands hostile fans.
Partizan squad returned to Belgrade in the early hours but staged recovery training session soon after and we spoke to Partizan goalie:
– I felt so bad! Actually, ball was charging towards me in the angle with the floodlight and for a brief moment I didn`t see it at all. Teammates support just then meant a lot to me as we all practically live together and go through many situations together, showing we are a true team. That mutual support and closeness pushed as forward last season and it does the same now. Once again, thanks to my teammates for being there for me.
Partizan was not far from winning the game?
– We showed we can play even game with such clubs as Olympiacos is. Unfortunately, Belgrade result didn`t help but we have to move on now. We have congested domestic fixture list and we need to get ready for it both physically and mentally. We have a EL play-off draw tomorrow and however we meet with we`ll do our best to enter group stage. This Partizan team deserves it.
