Written by: Rasmus Boysen
The 39-year-old former Serbian national player Ratko Nikolić leaves RK Borac after 3 years in the club.
The famous Bosnian club RK Borac from Banja Luka, who has won the Yugoslavian championship 7 times, the regional Serbian league 8 times, the EHF Cup once and the European Champions Cup (now Champions League) once, had a bad last season. They lost to HRK Izviđač in the domestic league, and wont participate in the SEHA League this season.
Now they also have resigned one of their most experienced players, the 39-year-old Serbian line player Ratko Nikolić, due to economic issues.
39-year-old Nikolić has a long career in European handbal in top clubs as KC Veszprém, BM Altea, Portland San Antonio, KIF Kolding and Paris Saint-Germain (at that time Paris HB). The Serbian line player has played more than 100 national caps, and participated at the Olympics in 2000 in Sydney, where the Yugoslavia finished fourth.
It is still uncertain wether or not Ratko Nikolić continue his career.
