After winning the Singapore league, Gligor Gligorov signed with Bosnian side Zrinjski.
Gligor Gligorov is back in Europe after spending a whole year playing in Asia. He was part of Singapore champions Tampines Rovers, but as the player told Aberdzija.com he failed to agree with the club for extending his contract. “With my now former club Tampines Rovers I won the championship in Singapore, but I couldn’t find a common ground with the clubs board. I came back home and I received the offer from Zrinjski. After spending seven days on trial, Zrinjski offered me a 1,5 years contract and I accepted with pleasure.”
The 25-years-old right midfielder played for years with Sileks in the Macedonian league and was one of the best players. After Tampines Rovers, Zrinjski is his third foreign club as he was also part of Czech side Baník Ostrava.
“On half-season Zrinjski has 9 points less than the first placed Željezničar and 7 less than Sarajevo. The title chances aren’t lost, but our priority will be a place in the European cups. The club is well organized and as I heard it has a solid financial background, so it’s up to me to focus on the games.” Gligorov concluded for Aberdzija.com.
Zrinjski, formed in 1905, has an interesting history as the club was banned from participating in any competition from 1945 to 1992 as the Yugoslav communists considered it as nationalistic club.
