Romanian top division club Concordia has signed two Macedonian footballers in defender Hristijan Dragarski and winger Filip Timov.
Both players are already training with their new team in Romania. Concordia barely avoided relegation last season as they finished in 14th place, just one point above the relegation zone. Due to that, the Concordia manager has decided to bring in many new players to improve the team for next season.
Thus far, Concordia has signed 10 new players, two of them being the Macedonian duo of Hristijan Dragarski and Filip Timov. Dragarski is a central defender who last played with Pelister, while Timov moves to Concordia from Aris Limassol in Cyprus. Both Dragarski and Timov have been capped by the various youth national teams of Macedonia.
Dragarski and Timov should thank Bazhe Ilijoski for their move to Romania. Ilijoski played under Marius Șumudică, the current Concordia manager, at Braşov in 2012 and experienced a lot of success with 6 goals in 12 league games. Ilijoski also moved to Romania from a Macedonian club back then (Metalurg), and Șumudică has now decided to bring in two more Macedonians at the new club that he manages, Concordia.
