Before the league matches resume, Aleksandar Zeljković also spoke to Navijaško zona about how he has had a really varied life journey – after all, just three years ago he was still a member of a club from one of the lower leagues in Austria.

“When the opportunity to go to Austria came up, I took it and went. I first drove for the first half-season and then lived there. I had the desire and the hope to succeed, I always wanted to play, waiting for the opportunity to take a step forward. And I did. Then, when I got the offer from Beltinci, I grabbed it with both hands,“, explained the former member of Žalec and revealed how a friend from Celje “helped him to the test in Prekmurje “.“I went to the test and obviously met the expectations,” added Aleksandar Zeljković.
