FK Partizan promoted latest signing today, on-loan holding midfielder Sasa Zdjelar who arrived to our club from Olympiacos. All loan formalities were finished on Tuesday evening and Zdjelar trained with his new teammates on Wednesday morning.
This is second loan spell for former OFK Beograd player – spring 2017 Zdjelar was loaned to Mallorca.
Sports Director Ivica Iliev on signing Zdjelar:
− It`s a great pleasure to announce that Zdjelar is in Partizan now. I have to withhold my emotion and not to be euphoric. Zdjelar is someone we wanted to sign for a long time. His blood is black-and-white, he spent his youth at Partizan south stand. Zdjelar is massive Partizan fan, a player with winning mentality.
− Energy was crucial in me signing, incredible energy transferred onto me by Ivica Iliev, I simply felt it.
I`d like to thank the club for doing everything possible to sign me. I`m lifelong Partizan supporter. It`s a dream come true to play at Partizan ground as Partizan player.
I don`t know much about Viktoria Plzen but we have two weeks to get ready for this EL tie. All players here have quality and I hope we will be on the winning streak soon.
