Our new striker, Krste Velkoski, was presented to the media this morning at a press-conference held in Hotel Colors Inn. The ex-captain of Rabotnički from Skopje arrived in the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina yesterday in the afternoon hours, where he signed a contract with our club and was officially presented as a member of Sarajevo FC.
Abdulah Ibraković, our sports director, was the first to address the media stating that Sarajevo FC makes continues efforts to strengthen its playing staff. He believes that Velkoski is the best option for a striker's position.
''We put continuous efforts in strengthening our playing capacities and we believe that the arrival of Krste Velkoski in our team is a huge offset in that direction. We have chosen Velskoski, the ex-striker and captain of Rabotnički because of his quality and experience. His sense for speed, technique and goal scoring will definitely improve our game. We expect to see faster offense and generally improved efficiency'', emphasized Ibraković.
Velkoski himself said that he has received few other offers, but finally he has decided to join Sarajevo FC.
''I'm happy to be here, in Sarajevo, and I'm very glad to be wearing this jersey. I've received few other offers, one even from South Correa, but eventually I have turned them all down and have chosen to join Sarajevo FC. It is a great pleasure to play in the jersey of Sarajevo FC and I hope that I'll meet all of your expectations'', said Velkoski.
We have also learned that Velkoski is in touch with our ex-striker from Titova 38b, the Macedonian national football team player, Adis Jahović.
''I spoke with Adis yesterday. He told me only good and nice things about Sarajevo'' – said Velkoski.
Our sports director, Abdulah Ibraković, pointed out that the contract has been signed for a two and a half year period, while the managing director confirmed that relevant compensation has been paid to Rabotnički.
''Krste Velkoski has signed a contract for two and a half years and we hope that our cooperation with Rabotnički will continue in the future as well. Velkoski is on the extended list of the Macedonian national football team and we firmly believe that he will be invited to play for the best selection of his home country. Having this in mind as well as the contract's term period, we can objectively think of one huge project'', said Ibraković, while Selimović added that:
''Sarajevo FC bought Velkoski from Rabotnički FC. Rabotnički FC also has its own interest to see Velkoski playing for the Macedonian national football team. Given his qualities, we believe that he will deserve such a chance.''
After the medical checkup, our new striker will join today our team currently on physical preparations in Čitluk.
