At the age of 20, Petrovic was snapped up by Serbian outfit, FK Partizan, sealing a 5 year contract. Radosav made his debut for the club surprisingly in a Champions League qualifier and scored his first club goal in the Serbian Cup Final of 2009.

In the 2009-10 season, Petrovic chipped in with 7 important goals to help Partizan seal the League title. An enforcer on the pitch, Radosav showed he was not afraid to use his size and strength, as well as showing the attributes of being a box to box midfielder, he was named in the Serbian Superliga Team of the Year

  • Nice work Sas…my only other observation regarding Petrovic is actually on that compilation on YouTube…he looks like he has great feet, pace and a marauding type style as well as an eye for a pass whether it be 10 or 40yrds! Reminds me of yaya toure??!

    Don’t wanna get too giddy here bit with that type of ability coupled with a monsterous physique we could have bagged ourselves a steal!!

  • Those stats sure do look impressive! I hope he plays as well as he sounds… we could have just snapped up a bargain!

  • I have a very good feeling about this player for Rovers! I think Goodwillie could be a hit but this boy could be a star.

  • Cannot wait to see this lad on the pitch now, excited, bring on the weekend and hopefully the stupid mindless hoodies wont put a stop to it!

  • He sounds brilliant. Like I always say, let’s give the lad a chance to settle in, but I’m really excited about this one. Well done Rovers!

  • Olsson, Petrovic, N’Zonzi, Hoilett….great young exciting midfield four!…have we actually launched a bid for Sol Bamba because many internet sources say we are “close” to signing him…..and he would be another great addition to our squad!
