Atanasijevic between present and past: “It’s a difficult moment for me. Supporters no longer agree”
from editorial staff
It was and is fondly remembered by the fans Sir Safety Susa Perugia. And not only. His name is Aleksandar Atanasijevicand some Peruvian hearts beat faster just hearing the name.
The Serbian forward, now a fighter in the ranks of the Polish team Skra Belchatovrecounts precisely the moment that his former team is going through, dominating the columns of the “Corriere dell’Umbria” both in Italy and in Europe.
However, his interview begins by analyzing the moment he is going through in the first-person perspective, also given the injury to the finger of his left hand: “It’s not one of the easiest moments for me as I played 3 games without knowing I broke my finger. But the most annoying thing is not being able to help my team. At the moment we are out of the playoffs, but we are sure that we will be there at the end of the championship“.
The focus is then shifted to what his master was: “In those years I lived a true dream. There are very few buildings like the PalaBarton. I’m very happy with the results he’s getting and I’ll always be his biggest fan. Even if it was a difficult decision, I think the departure was the right one at the time, also in agreement with the club. Recently spent in Umbria I didn’t feel like I used to and would have been sorry to stay just to fulfill the contract. The club didn’t deserve it, neither did the fans“.
The following analysis refers to the perfect season carried out by Perugia so far: “I imagined a great season, even if to be honest it’s hard to imagine yourself so clean and without defeats. The secret definitely lies in the management of Anastasi. Everyone feels part of the group and has the right rhythm, I like him a lot and he’s doing a great job. If I had to choose a name in the field, it would definitely be from
Giannelli, a real leader both on and off the Taraflex and also easy to see in the timeouts“.
One name that has surprised fans is that of newcomer Herrera: “He and I are definitely two different opposites. I have to congratulate him because he’s always an excellent graft when he’s questioned. I was definitely a different weight compared to him because when I came to Perugia there was no obligation to win, which is the case now“.
Sir dominates everything, but there’s a hint of regret when you think back to past seasons: “My treble season was absolutely perfect, also thanks to the warmth of the fans. However, now this closed group of fans is missing and I would like to go back to what it was before: a unison building. That would be best for the playersthe”.
