PositionMidfielder

Chelsea were in desperate need of an experienced central midfield player following Roberto Di Matteo's injury and manager Claudio Ranieri made his first signing to bring this much-travelled player to Stamford Bridge. A league winner with three different clubs: Vojvodina, Partizan Belgrade and Deportivo La Coruna he struggled at first to cope with the pace of the Premiership and made the majority of his appearances as a second-half substitute. A hard-working, aggressive midfielder player he uses his height to good advantage in dead-ball situations.
