Mile Acimovic says goodbye to the NT

The title says it all really. :depress:
I know it was time for him to do so, but I can't help being sad. He is one of our legends, I think he scored some of the most spectacular and decisive goals for our NT, even more than ZZ.

Who could ever forget this one:

His header against Romania from 11 meters and spectacular run across the field against Georgia deserve honourable mention as well, his converted penalty against Russia in 90th minute kept us in position to get to WC2002 later, it's difficult to even think about times he came onto the pitch in 2nd half and changed the game in our favour... Really, he was one of my favorite players from the golden generation together with Sandi Knavs and Ales Ceh.

Goodbye Mile and thanks for everything.

Yes, sad times really. To lose a player of his calibre at any time, but especially at times like that, is a damn shame.

He really was a one of the rare bright lights of our football. I think OAnimal put it all up nicely, he was class! We will never forget him, thats for sure.

Although we also have to say that lately, he was just a pale shade of himself from the best days, therefore it's a good time for him to say goodbye.

Bye Mile and thanks for everything!

Sad decision. It's obviously good for my club but I was sure he still had a lot to offer to the NT.

Good bye Mile, thanks for the memories! A true champion of the game and his goals against Ukraine, Romania and Paraguay all still dont fail to put the chill down my spine! Another player that will be hard to be replaced! All the best for the future
