Sports Director Ivica Iliev on Partizan latest signing:
– Lately, we brought blast of a signing Zoran Tosic, followed by defensive line signings and Ozegovic is our cherry on top of the cake. He is Serbian youth team member and he marked last season with lots of goals. He deserves to be here. I underlined three months Ozegovic was first on my list of arrivals. With departure of Djurdjevic we needed player of similar characteristics and I spotted Ozegovic early upon my arrival here. He almost completed so much better deal with Amkar and I`d like to thank him for coming here. I`d also like to thank Cukaricki. We have great potential to achieve a lot in Europa League. We made fantastic team, best Partizan team in last 20 years or so. We want to achieve biggest success of Serbian football in years.
– Great job from Partizan to sign so many quality players. It`s will be a shame if we don`t qualify for the last 32 of EL. I hope I will contribute to Partizan attacks on another domestic double and European success. Everyone will expect me to score more goals here but I`m looking for team success not individual.
