– Earlier, I agreed on everything with the club’s management, this signing of the contract represents only “technical details”. There were no complications and unforeseen things, we reached a quick agreement and now it is up to us to achieve the goals in the new season – he said Darko Puškarić.

Darko was not with Чукаричким on preparations in Sloveniaand, given that he is in the recovery phase from injury, in a match against OFK Bačke at the end of February he suffered a broken leg.

– For me, preparations are practically starting from Sunday. It was important for me to train for the efforts ahead of me, for the muscles to return to their functions. I started running, I hope to work with the ball soon – he said Puškarić, who then expressed satisfaction with what the team did in Slovenia:

– Although I haven’t been to Bled, I was in contact with everyone, I also watched the broadcast of the last game. The team works very well in both physical and technical-tactical sense, the professional staff has done a lot of work, of course the players. I would like to point out the fact that is very important, the management of the club kept the team, there were not many changes. The guys have already gone through everything, they know the requirements, ambitions and reputation of the club, so it was much easier for them. Everything was obviously done according to plan, otherwise there would be no preconditions for success.

Puškarić is on the team Чукаричког from some guys and twice as old, but he pointed out that the role he has in the team suits him perfectly.

– It is nothing new, in the last few years it has been normal and natural. I have to praise the younger guys, although they are all younger than me – he laughed Puškarić, who then added: – It is nice to work in such an environment, it is best when you are surrounded by young people.

Puškarić has become one of the pillars of the team with its games and attitude towards work and training Banovo brdo, and every year the question arises as to how long he will play football.

– I did not engage in those thoughts, considering that it is difficult to predict some things. Here, I had an injury, before that I was crowned… Whether I will play for a year, or maybe two or three more, we will see. All that matters is that I am focused on what I am doing. But, I would like to point out that everything is easier in a club like this. I finished the tennis “B” license, my plans are to go step by step. The next is the “A” license, so when the time comes, we will see what happens next – he said Darko Puškarić.

Stefan Radojicic was born in 2001 in Valjevo, but has been in for a long time Чукаричком. Now he has borrowed the jersey of the first team of Brdjan.

– I feel great here, Banovo brdo and Čukarički are my house. Although I started playing football in my hometown of Valjevo in the Krusik team, I came to Cukaricki very early, I have been here since 2014. I went through all the younger selections, from the pioneers onwards, I was on loan first in IMT, then in Zeleznicar. It was really great for me in Pancevo, I only missed one game because of the card. At my age, it is important that I play as much as possible, and I hope that I will have the opportunity in the first team of Cukaricki this season – said Radojicic.

Stefan went through the first preparations with the first team in Bled Brdjana, but points out that he doesn’t feel like a newcomer.

– I know most of the younger guys very well, we mostly played together at the Cukaricki Youth School. The older guys are also great, they accepted me very well. I am really satisfied with the complete situation, and I am overjoyed to sign a new contract. It is up to me to fight for my place, to play as fast as possible with the great competition I have as a stopper, to play and prove myself – he concluded Radojicic, which is for Čukarički debuted just over a year ago.
