A real tidy player is that miriam picnic.

They sure know how to make central midfielders in Hugoslavia.

We could learn a thing or two from them.

Of course Ajax's first european cup winning captain in 1971, Velibor Vasovic was from Serbia.He scored a goal for Partizan Belgrade in their 1966 european cup final defeat to Real Madrid as well.He actually walked out of Partizan to go to Red Star Belgrade, because Partizan would not give him a pay rise.Then after a few months at Red Star, Partizan said alright we'll give you what you want.

So he decided to walk out on Red Star Belgrade, and go back to Partizan Belgrade!Red Star understandably refused to sanction the move, so he was left sitting on the sidelines for a few months.Eventually he went back to Partizan, in exchange for Zvesdan Cebinac.He was not welcomed with open arms, by all his team mates upon his return.I suppose that was understandable enough really.

They’d have a serious team today as well. Oblak, Kolasinac, Lovren, Savic, Kolarov, Matic, Modric, Pjanic, Perisic, Rakitic, Mandzukic, Jovetic, Dzeko. Throw in Begovic, Kovacic, Tadic maybe even Zlatan, Xhaka, Arnautovic and Shaqiri?

He spent more time on the treatment table than on the pitch when he was at Real Madrid. Was a spent force at Barcelona. He spent some time at Oviedo under Raddy Antic and showed touches of his old quality but he never really "made it" in Spain. Pros also admitted himself, while in Spain, that he had "head issues".
