"It is a great honor for me. When the invitation from Crvena Zvezda arrived, there was no thought," Jagodic Kuridza said. "It’s a great club and a great challenge. I don't have a lot of time to fit in and play, so I have to use every training session to get into the team as soon as possible. It is my duty to work hard, train and to justify the confidence Zvezda has in me."
