Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: one of the most wanted players in world football now. The young Serbian has been attracting attention from Europe’s elite; with the likes of Manchester United, PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus all interested.

He Spoke with about Thursday’s victory against Salzburg: “We achieved a good result in the first game against the Austrians. We have conceded two goals, both were our own mistakes but luckily we scored four goals and it will help us in the 2nd leg.”

Asked about why Lazio score so many goals this season he said: “We pay close attention during training on the implementation phase. This is a good thing for us, winning four or more goals against rivals is important for the final phase of this season both in the league and in the Europa League.”

Serbia are going to the World Cup this year and Milinkovic is excited to feature, “It’s great to play at the World Cup. When we saw our group, all of us, from players to fans in Serbia, we started to hope to qualify to the knockout rounds. We have opponents with whom we can compete and we expect to achieve that goal. We will go to Russia with this mindset.” 

Finally the midfielder discussed the rumors about his future;  “Everyone is telling their version.I’m not thinking about my future at all.While I was injured, I was thinking about how to get back on the pitch as soon as possible. Now that I have recovered, I can concentrate on what is important my performance and results with Lazio. The current situation makes me understand that I do not have to think about other options. I want to stay with my current club so that we can qualify for the Champions League. “

Could Milinkovic-Savic stay with Lazio beyond this season? Will they qualify for next season’s Champions League? What will Serbia achieve in this year’s World Cup? Let us know your thoughts below.

  1. Laziale says:

    It is in his best interest to either stay in Serie A (Lazio/Juve) or PSG. Going to Man U. may be a waste as their team is already stacked with new and incredibly expensive talent. I do not see him regularly starting at Man U. the way he does with Lazio.

    Either way, moves to Juve/PSG will probably not see him start unless he performs >7.0 the next games of Lazio, particularly against Roma. If Lazio captures a CL spot he’s essentially giving up starting position on a team built with him in mind (in the CL), for teams where he will probably not start and has yet to be determined chemistry.

  2. Nedeljko Đukić says:

    Sergej also added that he would like to qualify for #CL with #Lazio AND play in it in Lazio kit!
    I think it’s more a question of whether Lotito will want to cash on him in summer or not.
