Description:

Partizan Belgrad became a real talent factory in recent years – Stevan Jovetic, Adem Ljajic, Miralem Sulejmani, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Stefan Savic, Zoran Tosic – they all started their remarkable careers there. The next big thing from black and white side of Belgrad should be very gifted midfielder Andrija Zivkovic.He came through “Youth School Belin – Lazarevic – Nadoveza”, Partizan famous youth academy. Andrija made his debut for “Crno-Beli” at the age of 16 on 28 April 2013 in a league fixture against Novi Pazar, replacing Darko Brasanac after 65 minutes of the match that ended in a goalless draw. He had a truly impressive start to current season scoring 4 goals in four matches and making himself a first-team regular at Vuk Rasovic side. There is no doubt that if he keeps progressing the way he has been in past few years he will leave Serbia before his 20th anniversary like two of his ex-teammates who left Partizan during the summer – Lazar Markovic (Benfica) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (Anderlecht). Serbia national team manager Sinisa Mihajlovic called him up or a friendly match with Japan, which takes 11 October in Novi Sad and if he will get a chance on the pitch he will break the Mitar Mrkela record by 37 days becoming the youngest player to debut in the jersey of the national team.

 

Quotes:

“I am happy that we got another talent in the first team, he drew attention to himself with quality games, and will be one of the most important signings. Zivkovic is one of the jewels that Partizan has in the youth academy, but not the only one. He needs to relieve the pressure and allow it to develop normally. I think he will be the team leader in the future.”

(Albert Nadj – former Serbian international, Partizan sporting director)
