Who Is Zoran Tosic?

zoran tosic Who Is Zoran Tosic?

On January 2nd, 2009, Manchester United announced the signing of two Serbian players, Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic, both from Partizan Belgrade.

Tosic, 21, will sign with immediate effect and will wear the number 14 shirt, while 17-year-old striker Ljajic will remain with Partizan until the end of 2009.

Zoran Tosic is a left winger who can also play as an attacking midfielder. He has played at full international level for Serbia twelve times, and previously made 46 appearances with Partizan, scoring 14 goals.

Tosic could be seen as the heir to the throne to replace Ryan Giggs on the left wing after the Welshman retires.

The signing of Tosic and Ljajic seem like smart moves by Sir Alex Ferguson especially since fellow Serb Nemanja Vidic has worked out so well for the club. Plus the transfer fees for Tosic and Ljajic presumably represent better value for money than similar players from other countries, although the transfer fees have not yet been disclosed for both players.

Here’s a highlight reel of Tosic in action in Serbia:

    The word on the street is somewhere in the neighbourhood of #17M for the two of them, depending on appearances and performance.

    Yet another very encouraging piece of work from Fergie!
