Upon arrival to the hotel, Partizan team was greeted by former Partizan player and assistant coach Andrija Delibasic, Niksic-born too.
– We are here to kick-off our European adventure. I expect one tough encounter but I`m sure we`ll do anything to go through as our ambitions this season are quite high. We have a good team and we can achieve a lot in Europe. Therefore we `ll do anything to score a good result here in Niksic against Rudar to start with. said Djukic at yesterday`s pre-match press.
– We kick-off competitive season tomorrow and out aims are always the same – to reach group stage of Europa League. We are playing Rudar and I don`t know much about them, I`m familiar with couple of players only. We should impose our style of play from the go, close the gaps at the back, and if we follow bosses instructions I hope we can achieve good first leg result, said Patizan midfielder Kosovic.
