The goalkeeper of the football club Partizan, Vladimir Stojković, said today at the farewell from the black.and.white jersey that he tried to control his emotions, but that the feeling was equal to winning the title.

“Thank you all. This moment may be replaced by the fact that I didn’t win the title for four years with my teammates. This is equal to the title, a feeling that can’t be bought. I practiced not to cry, but it’s not worth it. I don’t know what to tell you, except thank you all, “the former Partizan captain told reporters.

Stojković, who is celebrating his 38th birthday for Partizan tomorrow, played on two occasions, from August 2010 to January 2014, as well as from August 2017 until today.

He played 285 games for Partizan, while he played 84 games for the Serbian national team.

With the black and whites, he won three Serbian champion titles, as well as three Serbian Cup titles.

He will continue his career in Saudi Arabia, at the Al Fejhi club, which is led from the bench by former Partizan coach Vuk Rasovic.

When asked by journalists how much more he plans to play football, Stojković said that he “hopes that he will be at the level for another three or four years”.

Stojković added that he used to be “grumpy” in his career, but that he “did it all in the best interest of the club, with the desire to record a victory, without crossing sports borders”.

Former Partizan goalkeeper Ivica Kralj handed Stojković the Partizan jersey with the signatures of all players.
