Red Star academy is a real talent factory. Players like Nemanja Vidic, Dejan Stankovic, Vladimir Jugovic, Dragan Dzajic or Zoran Filipovic have all graduated from its academy and all made big careers in European football. Currently, Zvezda is producing yet another generation of very talented footballers, including Milos Brajovic, Milos Stojanovic, Mihailo Ristic, Dusan Zivkovic, Luka Jovic. The latter is considered to be the biggest talent of them all; he joined Red Star as a young kid and started to score goals after goals to an extent that the press have started to compare him to Darko Pancev – the legendary Red Star striker. Luka has not featured yet in the SuperLiga, but should get his chance in first team football soon, just like Ivan Saponjic – his striking partner for Serbian U-17’s – has recently been given a chance at Partizan.
“I believe that I am ready to play senior football. Especially because I have always played with a year or two older generation.”
