Lidija Kuliš, who started her career at SFK 2000 Sarajevo, after Turbina Potsdam, Linköpings, Cologne and Glasgow, will play for AC Milan from this season.
Our national team player says about her new club:
“My first impressions since coming to Milan are really great. Although this is only the second season for Milan, I knew it was a well-organized club with high ambitions. We have a quality team and our goal is to win the league, the Cup and play the Champions League next season. In the last two years, the Italian Football Federation has been investing a lot in women’s football and all the big men’s clubs have women’s teams as well, so the league has become attractive and strong. A lot of good and famous players have moved to Milan, Juventus, Roma and Inter this summer, so we have an interesting and exciting season ahead and I can’t wait for it to start.”
The striker Milena Nikolić will also play in the red-black jersey, but in Bayer Leverkusen.
“The first impressions are great. The club is very well organized and the conditions are excellent. Everyone at the club is very professional and they accepted me well, which means a lot to me and makes it easier for me to adapt to the new team and surrounding very quickly. I hope that we will achieve good results in the championship”, says Nikolić.
Marija Aleksić has been a resident of Ferencvaros for several seasons, and this season, her national teammates Melisa Hasanbegović and Selma Kapetanović have been joined her in the best team of Hungary.
Hasanbegović comes to Ferencvarosi TC from Slavia Prague, while to the recent SFK 2000 player, Selma Kapetanović, this is the first foreign engagement.
Melisa Hasanbegović points out that the club is doing quality work: “In the short time I spent here at the club, it is already noticeable that Ferencvaros has very good working conditions, which is very important to me. The training sessions are of high quality and this is very good for the progress of the players. The whole technical staff is very good and does its job at a high level. The girls at the club are great, helping us a lot with many things. I think Ferencvaros is a quality team and I’m really glad to be here.”
Kapetanović thinks similarly too: “It’s been over a month since my arrival in Ferencvaros and I can say that I am nice in the club. The players are great, the technical staff is professional and everything is at a top level. The conditions are ideal for developing of players who want to work and improve.”
The midfielder Aida Hadžić also found a new club. She will play for the Croatian champion, Split, in the 2019/20 season.
Hadžić says she is ready for new career challenges:
“ŽNK Split took over the title of the best team in Croatia last season. Their ambitions are great and are already among the bigger clubs in the region. Because of this very fact, as well as of my desire to change the surrounding and set myself a new challenge, I decided to move into the ranks of the Split club. I expect this transfer will bring me some new life experiences, as well as new football insights during works with a head coach, Božidar Miletić.”
The FF BH Football Development Assistant, Ivana Vlaić, commented on the transfers of our national team players: “This is an additional evidence that we have also been doing a good job, because all these players came from BH clubs. The FF BH has been investing in the development of women’s football for years and the confirmation that the strategy has been implemented in a quality way is that more and more of our players are playing in strong European clubs and leagues.”
