ZORAN MARUŠIĆ SHINED IN THE DINAMO JERSEY: The best scorer and assistant of the Georgian national championship in an interview for HotSport!

‘All this is a great motive to continue on the same path, in the same rhythm! Negotiations with the club’s management are waiting for me! ‘

Serbian football player, Zoran Marušić, will remember 2021 as the most successful year in his career so far, with the desire that every next one will only be better. However, in order to fulfill his wishes, the attacker Dinamo Tbilisi expects an extremely difficult task. No wonder when you say ‘heavy’, because Marušić has won as many as five prestigious awards during the previous year. Zoran was named the best foreigner, striker and player of the national championship Georgia, while in the same competition he won the title of the best scorer and assistant in the league.

ZM: I definitely consider this the greatest success in my career. If I said I expected all this, I would be lying. I believed that I could score a lot of goals, but I did not expect numerous awards. Previous seasons in Belarus I scored 10 goals and we looked great as a team. Looking for was in the middle of the table for years, and last year we managed to be at the top of football there. I am aware that those parties ‘recommended’ me to the current club. Thanks God, I am satisfied with what has been achieved in Georgia. All this is one big motive to continue on the same path, in the same rhythm. I have a desire to prove myself in other leagues, but after a break in Serbia I’m going to talk to the management. I think I’m coming to Dinamo made a great move, and we will see if I will wear the jersey of the same team next season. I am grateful God because I am healthy and happy. I finally showed myself in the right light.

Before leaving for Belarus, Zoran spent most of his career in Serbia. He was mostly part of the teams from the lower competitive rank, while in the Serbian Super League he defended the colors of the Dragons from ‘Roof’. Marusic compared the quality of teams in Georgia and our country.

ZM: I played in the least Super League. I recorded performances for Voždovac, if I’m not mistaken Cukaricki and Rada. From the team with Banjice we lost with a convincing 6: 1, but I remember that match for the assist I registered. In my opinion, Serbian Super League is a shade better than the national championship Georgia. There are four or five clubs that can cope with the super leagues from our country in terms of quality, but the others do not have that quality. Dinamo Batumi i Dinamo Tbilisi are not the rank of the two best Serbian clubs, Red Stars and Partizan.

In case he stays in the jersey of the famous club from Tbilisi, Marušić believes that participation in Europe and the title are the primary goals of his team.

ZM: Dinamo Tbilisi is the best club in history Georgia. It is clear that expectations are always high and the goal is for the club to show itself on the European scene in the best possible light. I believe that the management is already working on bringing reinforcements. Winning the championship title and entering League of Conferences would delight the fans of our team.

Far from it, Zoran had an easy path to success. Numerous accidents and obstacles have slowed down the development of the Serbian goal scorer’s career.

ZM: U BSK from Borča I arrived by a combination of unfortunate circumstances. I signed for Krupu sa Vrbasa from Of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but I had a car accident. I stretched the anterior cruciate ligaments and suffered head injuries. The club did not want to continue cooperating with me, so I had to find a new club. I found my place in the club from Borče. The problems continued, we fell into the lower ranks of the competition. The transition to Temnić from Varvarin, which was then the only option. The situation has not changed, we are dropping out of the league again and I am moving to Sloboda from Uzice. It was a promising opportunity. It turned out that people promised a lot, but did not implement it. I wore the captain’s armband, so I always felt the need to stand in front of my players. There were a lot of problems, so we soon left the club collectively.

Just as it usually happens, after an extremely difficult period, it was time for success.

ZM: Regardless of the mentioned obstacles, I really worked hard and believed that I would get a chance to show quality. I went to rehearsal in Belarus. It’s about the team Dnieper Mogliyev. It turns out that everything was good and I soon signed a contract. I owe a great deal of gratitude to the then coach, Ivan Bionček. He really helped me and I learned a lot from him. He later took over Gomel and made great results. He is a top expert! I started my career as a stopper, in Belarus arrived as a front midfielder, and he transferred me to the role of striker. Now I am convinced that this was the right move.

Football is not a national sport in Georgia, but Zoran believes that Georgians are rich in a large number of young and talented players.

ZM: I’m sure they’ll be heard about these young guys in a few years. They should get a chance in the next period and show everything they know. I often notice quality rivals during the game and I am glad that there are a lot of talented football players in the league who are the future of their national team.

It didn’t take Marusic much time to get used to life in Georgia, but he points out that he would rather choose Belarus.

ZM: It was hard at first, but it didn’t take me long to adjust. The culture is interesting and I generally like to get to know peoples and countries. Georgians they differ from us in that they are in no hurry. With them, everything is going at a slower pace, it’s really relaxed. They think that there is time for everyone, while in our country people live in a significantly faster way. I would give preference Belarus!! In case a good opportunity arises, I can imagine life there rather than in Georgia.

Considering that he played for Sloga from Kraljevo, Zoran shared the locker room with the defenders of ‘eternal rivals’.

ZM: True, I played with Nemanja Miletić and Marko Gobeljić. Those were beautiful times and thank you guys for everything. We hung out and we didn’t think about money and celebrate, but about football and friendship. They are good people and quality players. I am glad that I had the opportunity to share the locker room with them and that they made great careers – he concluded Zoran Marušić, in a conversation with HotSport.
