Coach Popovic, thrilling during all the match, won only 1-0 with a superb goal by Luca Stojanovic from about 25 meters. Our “Pioneers” so won the trophy of the tournament, that finished with an extraordinary ceremony with the participation of all the 32 teams of the event and everyone received a gift from the organization, Partizan had the cup of the 1st place. Other than this, we received also another trophy, the best player of the tournament that went to Stefan Savic“.
With Partizan Ninkovic won 3 Serbian championships and played the UEFA Champions League, in 2016 he landed to the Serie A with a short experience at Chievo Verona, but now with Genoa Dzigi seems to be finally ready and he wanted to show this as a real star, scoring the first goal against AC Milan at his first match played from the beginning.
