The Serbian lads, Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic, who signed for us last week, have today claimed that playing for Manchester United is a dream come true. Tosic was in the stands for our recent 3-0 win over Southampton, sitting behind Sir Bobby Charlton, and cannot wait to get started.
“At the beginning it was a dream to play somewhere like United but now it is a reality, one I am very happy with,” Tosic said. “I want to become a top player at United and not waste the opportunity of being a member of the greatest football family. It is great feeling, but now I must think about working hard. The presence of Nemanja Vidic will be a great help as I know him from the national team. I am full of confidence, will learn quickly and hope United can count on me very soon.”
Ljajic is also over the moon to join United and is eager to learn more over the next year before joining us in January 2010.
“It has all happened so fast for me,” Ljajic said. “I am only 17 and have had some dreams in the past but can now have one more: the United shirt. However, I will spend the next year learning more at Partizan and I will be ready for Old Trafford next January.”
