Predrag Rajkovic – Leistungsdaten – Transfermarkt Predrag Rajkovic ist ein Fußballspieler aus Serbien, (*1995-10-31 in Negotin, Jugoslawien (Bundesrepublik)). Predrag Rajkovic spielt bei Maccabi Tel Aviv.

General description:

Predrag Rajkovic is regarded as one of the greatest goalkeeper talents in the world in the "Balkans". He made his debut with 17 Years at Jagodina in the Serbian top, the SuperLiga. After only 4 Playing for the A team was already red star on it carefully and picked him up. Brought at first as a "Replacement", He already established himself as the undisputed number 1 in the gate of Red Star.

Predrag Rajkovic is characterized by multiple strengths. In addition to its distinctive mobility he shows also exceptional reflexes. While he sometimes can fend off a ball in unconventional way, without this negative meaning is. He realizes exactly whether he can also fend off a ball with the leg or the foot of the Gefahrenzohne. For his young age he has already a clean and good reception of the ball, as well as the technology in dealing with the ball.
Attention important for goalkeepers and concentration is given to him in any case. He has also a good timing and courage, "Fishing down" of slopes.
Its accuracy for both short and long balls is, to minimum without adversarial pressure, almost error-free.

At his young age he reveals also some weaknesses, Some are due to the still lack of experience, He will have to work on other weaknesses still hard.
In any case, his positional play needed improvement, especially in situations "under pressure". The accuracy of the fit is to take in these situations.
Rather due to the lack of experience, must he greatly improve its ability to communicate, especially if he wants to successfully play outside Serbia. Also his anticipation will (have to) improve still in the course of time.
Sometimes he prefers, a quick switch game of his team after his actions to prevent and to play it safe. He will have to think off quickly this on a larger Association and at a faster pace or. Toggle game must get used to or. braver and better decisions.
Not only the mental quickness needed training also the physical speed must be brought to an international TOP level, otherwise run out in a stronger League will not more so successfully run out.

His career runs steeply uphill at a rapid pace and still seems no end in sight.
Within a very short time he has proven to be Nr. 1 at Red Star can establish. Since he already was appointed and could already make his first appearance in the Serbian national team, I have not the smallest doubt, that he soon in this team to the Nr. 1 promoted.
The next step is the move to a European top Club, even if it does not immediately an elite team (z.B. Bavaria, Barcelona, Will be Madrid), so it may be already a team of international class (z.B. Florence, Valencia, etc.) be.


Current form
Although red star is "only" second table behind FK Partizan, is he with only 6 Goals conceded an important reason for the defensive stability. He is just, to develop the talent to a player of international class. He is in impressive form, However, one must emphasize, that it is "only" to the Serbian SuperLiga and great challenges are waiting for him, that he needs to get used to and adjust.

Current situation at the Club
He is the undisputed and acclaimed Nr. 1 of the Association and the great hope of the country. Official end of the contract is 2017. It is foreseeable, that the Club can not long keep such talent, and also don't want to. For it will certainly, in the near future, a multimillion offer came in flutter. According to Club size of the interested clubs here are at least 1 – 4 Mio € are due.

When Predrag Rajkovic successfully at the pace of an anerkannteren European League as z.B. Spanien, Italy, Frankreich, England or Germany also can adapt, can he reach the international class unquestionably. Whether for a world-class potential as z.B. Petr Cech is enough is not (yet) clear. He can at least for a team of international class in a 4 play the strongest League in the world.

One of the hottest goalkeeper prospects in the world for the last few years. Still his potential and talent shines, but actually outside of central european attractions, in Israel at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

After being (one of) the most valuable players at last U20 world cup, winning the title with serbian side, indeed, it seemed somehow strange when he moved to Maccabi instead to a major club in one of the 3 Top Leagues, but its also rumored that there was already some pre-agreement signed with a big club “parking” him at Maccabi Tel-Aviv, where he can play all games in a first league competition plus getting first Champions League experiences. We are keen to see to which club he will move in the end…
