Rumor: Pivot chooses Berlin rather than Paris
Written by: Rasmus Boysen
Another player of the Macedonian Champions League winner RK Vardar, Mijajlo Marsenić, allegedly leaves the club after this season.
The players of the current Champions League champion RK Vardar are still interesting for other clubs, and the 24-year-old Serbian pivot Mijajlo Marsenić is according to the Macedonian handball website 24Rakomet one of those, who are constantly targeted at the big European clubs. On the list of teams that are interested in the Serbian national player is the German top club Füchse Berlin, who has entered a battle with the French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain for an agreement.
The current head coach of Marsenic, the successful Spanish head coach Raul Gonzalez, replaces Zvonimir "Noka" Serdarusic as head coach of Paris Saint-Germain after this season (read more here). It may have many to think that the French champion has an advantage, but according to 24Rakomet Marsenic is closest to choose Füchse Berlin.
Füchse Berlin has Erik Schmidt and Ignacio Plaza Jimenez as pivots this season. While the 24-year-old German, Schmidt, has a contract to the summer of 2020 the 23-year-old Spaniard, Plaza, has a contract that expires at the end of the season.
Mijajlo Marsenić came to RK Vardar from the Serbian club RK Partizan in 2015.
