Todorovski set to leave Sturm Graz

Todorovski will depart Sturm GrazAleksandar Todorovski is nearing an agreement to terminate his contract with Austrian club Sturm Graz.

Both Aleksandar Todorovski and Sturm Graz have come to the realization that parting ways is the best solution for each party. Todorovski is looking for more playing time, while Sturm Graz does not view him as a starter. Aleksandar lost his starting spot once Franco Foda was appointed manager in late September of 2014.

Todorovski joined Sturm Graz back in the summer of 2013 when Darko Milanič was manager. After Milanič departed the club, however, Todorovski was replaced in the starting lineup by Martin Ehrenreich. With Aleksandar slated to turn 31 years old next month and with the fact that he only has 6 months left on his contract, the two sides are nearing an agreement to mutually terminate his deal. It should be made official by the end of this week.

Based on comments by Sturm Graz fans on social media, they don’t mind that Todorovski is leaving. The supporters don’t view him as a modern fullback. They say Aleksandar is very limited as a player because he offers nothing offensively as a right-back or left-back (which he played on several instances during his time in Austria). Todorovski is a hard nosed player who commits a lot of fouls, but he does not offer much on the offensive end.

Todorovski was originally born in Serbia, but he chose to represent Macedonia since he was deemed not good enough for his birth country. Todorovski has compiled 15 caps for Macedonia, but he’s not in the plans of current manager Boshko Gjurovski. Aleksandar was last called up for the Spain qualifier back in September of last year, but Gjurovski was not pleased with what he saw in training so he hasn’t invited Todorovski since that time.
