Alexander Kačaniklić, who has Macedonian origin, will spend the rest of the season as a loaned player to English Championship side Watford.  Kačaniklić's parent club Fulham decided to loan the player to Watford since Alexander did not see action for the first team of Fulham.  So, instead of playing for the reserves, Fulham sent him on loan to Watford.

Kačaniklić went directly into the starting lineup for Watford who secured a 2:0 win over Milwall just a day after his loan move.  Not only did he make his debut right away, Alexander turned provider on both goals for Watford, making him one of the best players on the pitch.  To quote one Watford observer "Kačaniklić played a key role in the Hornets win; supplying the pass for Troy Deeney’s opener before striking a second-half shot which was only parried away by David Forde, to allow Joe Garner to score".

Alexander Kačaniklić was born in Helsingborg, Sweden on the 13th of August, 1991 and originally began his career with Helsingborg IF.  He then moved to Liverpool where he spent 3 years in the Liverpool academy.  In the summer of 2010, Liverpool sent Alexander to Fulham in a swap deal which allowed Paul Konchesky to join the Reds.  His next career move will be a loan to Watford in order to gain experience and receive regular playing time in a league with good competition.

Kačaniklić can easily play as a left winger, but can also be deployed in central midfield as well - a position that is vastly needed on the Macedonian national team.  The player has Macedonian origin and since he has not been capped by the senior national team of Sweden, he is still eligible to play for Macedonia.  In the past, Alexander has made appearances for Sweden's youth national teams.
