Written by: Rasmus Boysen
The Swiss League club HSC Suhr Aarau has signed the Serbian goalkeeper of the League rivals BSV Bern Muri, Dragan Marjanac.
Press release from HSC Suhr Aarau:
HSC Suhr Aarau is pleased to announce the commitment of goalkeeper Dragan Marjanac for the 2018/19-season. The 32-year-old comes from league rivals BSV Bern Muri to HSC Suhr Aarau, where he has signed a long-term contract.
Dragan Marjanac has since 2011 played and lived in Bern and will move to Suhr with his family in the summer of 2018. For the BSV Bern Muri he has so far played 209 NLA games, for the Serbian national team, with whom he won the silver medal at the European Championships in 2012 and from which he resigned in favor of his family in 2014, he completed a total of 78 caps.
In combination with his defense, the responsive goalkeeper is due to his excellent positional play one of the best goalkeeper of the National League A and brings correspondingly valuable experience with the young NLA team of HSC Suhr Aarau. There he replaces his 25-year-old compatriot Mihailo Radovanovic, whose contract expiring end of the season is not renewed. Dragan Marjanac, together with Dario Ferrante, will form the future HSC goalkeeper duo.
Sporting director Michael Conde is pleased about the commitment: "Dragan Marjanac strengthens us as a top goalkeeper and human. Together with Dario Ferrante, he will form one of the best goalkeeping duos in the league and will add additional, valuable security and stability to our defense, which is considered our strongest weapon."
