    18 months on, and this guy is one of the standout players in the U20 WC win for Serbia (played an unbelievable match against Brazil) and is being linked with the likes of PSG and Roma. He already holds clean sheet records for Red Star as well, so looking like a pretty promising talent. We might see him in a bigger league soon.
