Bojan Djordjic confirms participation for Hero ISL

MUMBAI: Hero Indian Super League confirmed the participation of former Manchester United player Bojan Djordjic for the inaugural season. The winger-cum-attacking midfielder will feature among the 49 players in the central international player draft to be held on 21 August 2014 in Mumbai.


Commenting on his association with the league Bojan Djordjic said, “Playing in the Indian Super League will be a great adventure, a chance to meet new people and help them to become stronger in a sport that has been my passion for my whole life.”


Djordjic joined United in 1999 at 17 from Brommapojkarna, a Swedish second division club near his Stockholm home. United spotted Djordjic playing in the under 17 European championships for Sweden against England. Within a year Bojan earned the rare distinction of United's Young Player of the Year. By 2001, he was named in United's first team squad on a regular basis.


Over the last 15 years, the now 32 year old has gained vast international experience having played competitive football in England, Scotland, Serbia, Denmark, Sweden and Hungary. Known as a creative centre midfielder and touted as a set-piece specialist, Bojan has played key role for his respective teams in winning four league titles in four different countries - the domestic doubles with Glasgow Rangers (Scotland), Red Star Belgrade (Serbia) and AIK in Sweden and won the League Championship in Hungary for Videoton FC. He was also instrumental in making Plymouth Argyle FC a strong championship side during his time in England.
