Transfer Number 6: Miloš Krasić




xF0CIYt6KQY​

Playing style

Krasić is a right-sided midfielder/winger, noted for his powerful dribbling technique and speed. He has earned comparisons with former Juventus great, Pavel Nedvěd.

Early years

After starting out with the hometown side FK Rudar, Krasić was noticed by FK Vojvodina in 1999 and he made a switch northwards at age 14. He spent the next four-and-a-half seasons in Novi Sad, where he further raised his level and became the team captain.
CSKA Moscow

FK Vojvodina and CSKA Moscow were in negotiations over Krasić's transfer since January 2004, but the deal stalled. The player himself even made several unsuccessful trips to Moscow. Finally, during the summer of 2004, the deal was completed and the winger was on his way to Russia. He featured in three games during the club's UEFA Cup 2004–05-winning run, including a cameo appearance in the final. He also helped them win the Russian title in 2005 and 2006, the Russian Cup in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009, and the Russian Super Cup in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

Juventus

After much speculation in the summer of 2010, Juventus and CSKA Moscow agreed on a fee for Krasić reported to be in the range of about €15 million. Krasić officially became a Juventus player on 21 August and was given the #27 shirt. Krasić was instrumental in his home début against Sampdoria, assisting a goal and creating many chances. The game ended 3–3. In his second away game in the Serie A, against Udinese, Krasić proved once again instrumental in their 4–0 victory, assisting Fabio Quagliarella and Claudio Marchisio for a goal each. Krasić scored his first Juventus goals against Cagliari on 26 September 2010, netting a hat-trick. He scored his first European goal for Juventus, helping his side salvage a point against Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg in the Group A tie of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League, in a match that finished 1–1. On 26 October, he was given a two-match ban after diving, although successfully winning a penalty (the penalty was then missed), during the league match against Bologna. Krasić scored a goal in a 2–0 away win over Genoa after Eduardo put a ball in his own net in the 18th minute. On 12 December, in the game against Lazio, Krasić scored a very late, match-winning goal in which his attempted cross deflected off Lazio goalkeeper Fernando Muslera and into the net. The match ended immediately after the goal in a 2–1 victory for Juventus. He scored a screamer which guided the Bianconeri to a 2–1 victory against Brescia. He managed to score another screamer against Roma, in which the match ended 2-0. He scored his first goal of the 2011/2012 Serie A season against Catania Calcio.

Fenerbahçe

Fenerbahçe SK completed the transfer of Krasić for €7 million on 3 August, 2012. Krasic signed a four-year contract worth €2.3 million per-season.


Edit: we just needed a proper thread for this guy. We may have our opinions if the transfer was needed or not, but it IS a big transfer regardless.

That's a good move. He's not as bad as his experience with Juve indicates.

they go buy krasic after they started cl qualification, thats odd. kocaman is obsessed with midfielders and wingers whilst other teams buy 7 forwards and no decent cb or lb. somebody need to check these managers theyve lost it.

He's a good player when he's given confidence and playing regularly, very direct. His main down side is he's extremely one footed and thus predictable, but with his pace, acceleration and strength he's able to somewhat compensate that fact.

Good luck to him and Fener. :thumbsup:

I reckon Kuyt will be used as a striker now. Back-up or starter I don't know.
