19 year old Bosnian defender playing as a starter for Red Star Belgrade. He played for Borac Banja Luka and was their best defender as an 18 year old.

Red Star fans are already comparing him to Nemanja Vidic. This is what a Serbian Red Star Belgrade fan said about him:

Why hasn't Ciro called up Ognjen Vranjes yet? I'm telling you, from what I've seen this guy is a raging bull on defense. He reminds me a lot of Vidic, and he's faster than Vidic too.

Ciro better call him up, before Antic gets his hands on him.
He even says he's faster than Vidic. Having a Bosnian Serb dad and Bosniak mom, he has choice to play for Serbia and Bosnia, but he's leaning towards Bosnia more. He's played for the Bosnian U21 team, and in the first game ever for U21, he scored 2 goals as a defender overpowering the Montenegrins 3-2.

He resembles Nemanja Vidic in many ways, but as well as looks :D



He's tall, strong, fearless, and quite quick. For a 19 year old, he's a hell of a defender. Godwilling, he can become a bright defender playing for a top 3 league in the future. He has every potential to do so.

:howler:

This dude is not even a starter at a Red Star team that is our worst in history. He's barely had a chance to play, but in his defence, he is one of the younger players in this squad and we're not exactly an environment to grow in right now.

Tomovic is at least 4 years older and right now, much better, but Vranjes will get his chance next season when all of our foreigners and best players get sold in an attempt to save the club.

But the Vidic comparison is hilarious, mate I watched both and he doesn't even come close..

Funny how Ognjen is leaning towards Bosnia when he actually considers himself as being serb on Zvezdas official website :howler:

Anyways, at least he likes Vidić like you said..

I saw him play in our last game, he didnt look to bad but to say he is better than Tomovic and liking him to Vidic is a joke.

He's pretty good for his age and played well when he got a chance. I don't know where that guy is getting the Vidic comparison from they have little in common. Right now Tomovic is better but hes older.

I don't know if he's leaning towards Bosnia, he came to Serbia when he could have went somewhere else, his favourite player is Vidic, he considers himself a Serb, he wrote his Red Star bio in cirilica...

Vidic at Oggy's age wasn't even a starter..

And Vranjes started in the last 3-4 games for Red Star and he didn't make one mistake, according to Red Star fans.

Actually no, I wasn't comparing Vidic and Oggy in terms of skill. That's coming from a fellow Red Star fan. I was comparing his looks though, and he sort of has similar body type as well.

Nemanja was a starter as soon as he came back from his loan at Spartak Subotica, that was when Zoran Filipović (current Montenegro coach) took care of the team back in 2001-2002-season, so of course he was a starter back then.

I dont think he has started 3-4 games i think it was just the last one(maybe two) because before that Tomovic and Tutoric were playing constantly as cbs. And not making one mistake is a lie, he made one last week luckily Stamenkovic bailed him out.
