- I like pressure, I like high expectations, I enjoy it, but I was also surprised by how many people expect now. I know how I will work, I can’t promise, but I know that it will be an abnormal fight and all that additionally inspires and motivates me. That is a great inspiration for me – Stanojevic said after taking office.
The returnee to the ranks of the black and whites did not hide that he literally jumped into the job unprepared and that he has yet to make a work plan regarding the selection of players.
- We will definitely bring in new players. I talked to people from the club, but honestly, yesterday I found out that I would become a coach, I was on vacation. We have a wish, we are filled with foreigners, and that is it in this transitional period. We want to bring home players. I like to bring back Partizan’s children, who went through school, they feel this story. It is easier to get into these fights with them, they feel this emotion that we all have. It will be known very soon.
Although he did not want to talk about the work of his predecessor, Stanojevic emphasized that black and whites must have a recognizable game that will not differ from game to game.
The returnee to the ranks of Partizan did not give a specific answer as to why he decided to return to Serbian football, although he had previously said that it was no longer an option.
- I have not been in the Serbian media for eight years. I talked to people from the club several times and before this time I was not ready. I opted for Asia, I was there for five years and did everything I could. Not to suffer, I primarily had the ambition to try to do something in Europe, because I always have the opportunity to go to Asia. The other thing is the emotion that draws you to come here, as well as what is happening with our club. I left the club tired of everything, just as Savo is tired of everything. I didn’t have the energy, I have to be honest with the club, it wasn’t the moment… Now I wanted and I have that energy to try to change something, if I can.
He asked Partizan fans to be patient until December, when visible progress on the field can still be expected.
