After four-week winter break, Partizan squad returns to club`s training centre.
Players were greeted by FK Partizan President Milorad Vucelic and coach Aleksandar Stanojevic, as well as club`s General Director Milos Vazura, Sports Director Ivica Iliev and board members Dragan Trailovic and Mladen Mijatovic.
FK Partizan President Milorad Vucelic addressed players and coaching staff before first training session of the year:
-Dear players and honoured members of coaching team, I`d like to congratulate you on half-season honours to start with. Precise analysis say that this is the best Partizan half-season in the club`s history. That`s only maths but I know how much sweat, skill and fighting spirit was on display in three competitions we are still in. We have a point advantage in domestic championship that allows us to believe we have a great chance to win the title. There`s a saying “look before you leap”. In our case it means we are in for a record leap, we just need to look forward.
Boss Aleksandar Stanojevic addressed his charges too:
-We are on a same road here and we all want to keep going, without any doubt. I hear stories about us celebrating something, it`s far from true. We are extremely wary and focused, aware of everything ahead of us. Therefore, we are even more motivated to work harder, to raise our levels 20 to 30 percent. I don`t think we achieved much so far but we`ll try to achieve our aims in one righteous battle, aims I think we deserve to achieve.
Squad will train at club`s sports centre until 23rd of January followed by second part of winter pre-season at the destination yet to be confirmed, depending on training conditions and Covid-19 measures.
Partizan youngsters Mihajlo Petkovic and Mihajlo Ilic have been added to the winter pre-season squad.
