FK Partizan signed 23-year-old Mousaa Jailani Njie from Norwegian outfit Stabaek. Njie signed a 3-year-deal and picked shirt number 21.
Moussa Njie has Gambian roots but he is Oslo-born and therefore Norwegian citizen. He plays as a winger or attacking midfielder. Njie is strong and fast player, good in one-on-one plays with a powerful long range strikes ability.
He started his career in Oslo`s Holmlia and signed his first professional contract with Valerenga in 2013. Two year later, he moved to second-tier Baerum before signing for Stabaek in 2016.
– I first came here with my brother to see Belgrade and how Partizan works. I was supposed to move to Turkey but I decided to come to Serbia and see what`s on offer. I was greeted by lots of enthusiasm and love, I felt that. To be honest, I didn`t have great expectations but when I viewed Partizan infrastructure and spent some time with club`s sports director with whom I had great communication from day one, I was won over. I knew Belgrade and Partizan would be a great place for me, said Njie upon arrival.
I know Partizan always aims to be top of domestic league and to play Champions or Europa League. I also know that Partizan`s big rival is Crvena Zvezda and I`m fully aware of all club`s desires. I want to give Partizan best of me, to be part of starting line-up and I know I need to work hundred percent to get there, both in training and in games.
