The talented attacker Aleksandar Trajkovski will continue his career in Belgium with Zulte Waregem who finished 11th place this past season in the Belgian top division.  Keep in mind that Anderlecht was also interested in Trajkovski but their offer of 500,000 euros was rejected by Inter Zaprešić.  The Croatian club wanted seven figures for Trajkovski and accepted the offer by Zulte Waregem who are managed by Bosnian Darije Kalezić.

Trajkovski joined Inter Zaprešić as a 17 year old in the summer of 2010.  He was not allowed to play in league games until he turned 18.  Trajkovski scored numerous goals in friendlies and displayed his good form during the second half of the season when he scored four goals and provided three assists in 15 appearances.  His form drew interest from Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb but the two teams could not agree on a transfer fee.  The sports director of Inter Zaprešić was satisfied with the business move and stated that his club has to make these kinds of transfers to continue functioning as a team.Zulte Waregem

It is also worth mentioning that Trajkovski was invited to be a guest player for English club Chelsea last year during a youth tournament.  He actually scored a game winning goal against Botafogo to send Chelsea to the semifinals of the tournament.  Although Trajkovski is only 18 years old, he is already a member of the Macedonian U21 national team and he is not far from making his debut with the senior national team if he continues to improve as a player.
