First Captain Denis Toto: I lived 100 meters away and drove him to training. I thought he was going to make it

I was the captain of the Đakovo team, exactly when Denis joined the first team, and he was only 15-16 years old at the time, he recalled Tomislav Bošnjak (34) of his first joint matches with a tragically deceased fellow citizen Denisom Totom, who lost his life on Friday at the age of 28 after a physical attack in front of a nightclub in Skopje.
