Djordjevic lives Partizan dream

Defender Nenad Djordjevic said it was "a dream come true" to join champions FK Partizan from FK Obilic.
FK Partizan have signed Serbia and Montenegro defender Nenad Djordjevic from FK Obilic.

'Dream come true'
The 24-year-old admitted it was a "dream come true" to join his country's domestic champions on a four-year deal after 71 appearances for Obilic. "Ever since I was little I have wanted to play for Partizan," Djordjevic said. "I am totally motivated and I will do my best to help Partizan qualify for the [UEFA] Champions League."

'Stability and calm'
Partizan director Nenad Bjekovic said of the transfer: "We have been following him for a long time. We need him to bring stability and calm to our defence. He is young but experienced - Djordjevic is the player we wanted."

Swedish opposition
Capped six times by Serbia and Montenegro, Djordjevic and his new team-mates will meet Swedish side Djurgårdens IF in the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round. Meanwhile, defender Dragoljub Jeremić has extended his contract by four years.
