Football Fun

According to BZ

Vuckovic bleibt bei TeBe!

Jetzt ist es perfekt: Nenad Vuckovic bleibt bei Tennis Borussia! "Wir sind sehr froh, daß Nenad bleibt", sagt Veilchen-Boss Peter Antony. Der Kroate erhält einen Zweijahresvertrag. Nach anfänglichen Problemen unter Ex-Coach Theo Gries ist der gelernte Abwehrspieler jetzt im Mittelfeld eine feste Größe - im wahrsten Sinne. "Wie der mit 2,04 Meter Körpergröße den Ball behandelt, ist fantastisch", schwärmt Antony. Das blieb auch der Oberliga-Konkurrenz nicht verborgen. "Nach unserm Spiel bei Union hat Christian Beeck um Mitternacht bei Nenad angerufen", sagt Antony. Zu spät: Vuckovic hatte sich anders entschieden. Antony: "Nenad ist an Geld nicht interessiert, er will Spaß haben."

Vuckovic has signed a two year extension to his contract with TeBe. The lanky (long legged used to be in defense but now plays the Peter Crouch position) Croatian is, according to Peter Antony, not interested in the money as much as fun.

As a fan I have to say I am pleased. Like all players, Vucko has his good and bad matches but his improvement this season has been remarkable. His big target man up front role lends a great deal to our game, an advantage that most teams in the Oberliga dont have the luxury of. He sometimes comes across as tall and awkward on the ball but has recently managed to trick his way round defenders and pass dangerous balls out. He is amazing in the air at over 2 meters tall and is very strong on the ball. I am pleased that his is having fun and that he will be around next season. If he continues to improve at this rate then we will all be happy bunnies.
