- We are doing very well, the team gave evidence of great unity that gives us reason to hope and be confident - said the trainer. - But I think, it's our duty.
Nikolić added, it is especially worth of praising in the light of the financial situation of the team. Any player could stand up and sign to another at any time.
- That's why I'm proud of them, for their loyalty and committment.
As for tomorrow's match...
- Our opponent is one of the league's three most experienced teams. It won't be an easy match, it's never easy against them. We must win, it's no question.
Players who most probably stay on the bench: Andrija Živković, Danilo Pantić and Miladin Stevanović. Yet Darko Brašanac will most probably return, also Ivan Petrović and Nenad Marinković are also ready for battle.
Not much encouragin news is that Partizan might sell out some of their players in the near future. The reason is solely their catastrophic financial situation. Portuguese Benfica has allegedly shown interest for Andrija Živković, they are willing to pay 2-3 million €. Lazio have been constantly around Vojislav Stanković, while Maccabi Haifa from Israel seems to be after Nikola Drinčić. No facts yet, only guessings and rumours, as soon as there's anything concrete, I'll post it.
Tomorrow's match will be broadcasted live by ArenaSport 1.
