The young member of the national team is bound by a contract until 2025!

Football club Grafičar has in the last few years stood out and profiled itself as the best environment for the development of young players. The mother of the team that she leads from the bench Marko Neđić consists of players born in 2002 and younger.

They are firmly on Senjak believed that this model of work could bring them results and they were not wrong. There are plenty of reasons to be happy in the calendar year 2022. Second place won in Mozart bet to the First League of Serbiathe affirmation of a large number of young players, an attractive and efficient game, a large number of socially responsible club actions completed the invitation Filip Vasiljević to be the first football player in the hundred-year history of Grafičar to play for the young national team of Serbia.

That’s how the young midfielder born in Burn 20 years ago he found himself in a situation to write the history of Grafos. He played two matches for the national team, against Cyprus and Macedonia, and immediately after returning from the national team meeting, he extended his cooperation with A graphic artist until 2025.

– It is a great honor for me to be the first player in the history of Graficar to receive an invitation to the national team. The club has a long history and tradition, which makes me even more proud. I found out that I was on the list of coach Goran Stevanović during a training session and the feeling was fantastic. This was followed by congratulations from teammates and coaches, and later, of course, family and friends – pointed out Vasiljević at the beginning of the conversation.

Shortly after the call, the debut for our national team followed. First against Cyprus, then against Macedonia.

– I was excited about my debut in the Serbian jersey. I started the first match in the starting lineup and played until the 65th minute. In the second game against Macedonia, I entered the continuation and I can say that I am
happy with how i played. I received a lot of support and well-intentioned advice from the coaches at the club,
Marko Neđić and coach Goran Stevanović. They both advised me to play freely, yes
I enjoy being on the field and I am extremely grateful to them for their support – says the young midfielder, whose happiness about his debut cannot be spoiled even by the “memory” from the match against Macedonia, in which he received a blow that required stitches.

It’s no secret that in Grafičar, under the command of Marko Neđić, they play attacking, always forward and with a goal more. That the young expert, regardless of the rival, is consistent in the formation with only one back midfielder, in this particular case, Filip Vasiljević.

– If the team didn’t play well, if I didn’t get the trust of the coaching staff and if I didn’t feel the support of everyone in the club, I certainly wouldn’t get a call to the national team. We have a winning mentality, we play beautiful and attractive football, as evidenced by the fact that we are by far the most effective team in the Mozzart bet First League with 44 goals scored.

The invitation to the young national team was followed by an invitation from the head of Grafičar, who offered Vasiljević extension of cooperation for another two and a half years. Filip, as expected, did not change his mind for a long time.

– This is certainly the most beautiful period in my career. I extended my contract with the club, received an invitation to
national team, I enjoy every training and match because the atmosphere in the team is phenomenal. I do not know
what it is like in other clubs, but I can hardly imagine that there is a better one somewhere. I expect that on
spring will be the same if possible even better – the young representative of Serbia speaks with a lot of optimism and continues to pour praise on Graficar.

– The club really pays a lot of attention to young players. Nikola Lazetić left Grafičar for Milan, Stanković, Leković and Mijatović are in the first team of Crvena zvezda… So it is not a phrase that Grafičar is the best club for the development of young footballers. Soon I expect to play at our stadium, which is being renovated.

The first two places in the second highest ranking competition in Serbia also bring placement in the Super League of Serbia. And how the youngest Mozzart bet team of the First League would manage in a select company was perhaps best illustrated by the match against Vojvodina in the Serbian Cup.

– We played attacking in that match as well. We played a match against Vojvodina with 15 “bonuses”. The only senior
the player was our captain, Luis Ibanez. We did not deviate from our philosophy, for a large part of the match we were in
high pressing, had an advantage, conceded a goal in the finish and then were eliminated on penalties. We approach every challenge with a lot of confidence and enthusiasm. We are eager to prove ourselves because we have the youngest team, the youngest coach and the youngest club director. And in youth is the future – emphasized Vasiljević.

The trend in world football is that, in addition to activities on the field, more and more attention is being paid to personality development, that is, to all those activities related to personality development.

– We try to use our free time for off-field activities. We feel the concern of the people in the club
to us. We used the breaks in the championship to join the library, go to the theater together,
During the month of October, we supported the Institute of Oncology in the fight against breast cancer.
We have state-of-the-art center recovery facilities and much more. We really feel
privileged to play for Grafičar – states the midfielder of the team from Senjak.

Grooming young players is not an easy task at all. In the years that represent the key for the transition from youth to senior football and when most teenagers spend their time going out, socializing and traveling, those who chose football as a profession have to forget about all these pleasures.

– Sometimes it is not easy, but I chose that path myself. And I don’t regret it. I love football, I want to
to build a career, to be an example on and off the field. I try to always be fair to
the opponent because I believe that behavior off the field is just as important as on the field – underscores Filip Vasiljevic.

In ten years, he would like to be talked about as a member of the Serbian national team, a player who, after Graficar, went to one of the development leagues of Europe, such as the Dutch one, and then from there to one of the famous peninsulas, the Pyrenees or the Apennines. And all that with the number “13” on the back.

– I chose the number “13” and I did not regret it. He turned out to be a talic to me. As long as everything goes according to plan, I won’t change it for sure – concluded Vasiljević.
