Transfer Profile: Bojan Matić

FC Seoul's Serbian Striker Bojan Matic
FC Seoul added to their attacking options during the summer transfer window by signing 26-year-old Serbian striker Bojan Matić from Mačva Šabac in the Serbian Super Liga To gain an insight into what FC Seoul fans can expect from their new hitman, K League United spoke with Miloš Marković, a Serbian football expert from Sportske.net.

How was Matić viewed at Mačva Šabac? League wide?

Bojan Matić enjoyed a stellar season with Super Liga debutants Mačva. With 11 goals in 34 league matches he was one of the key components in helping the Serbian minnows remain in elite company. His overall displays caught plenty of attention domestically and globally, obviously.

Strongest aspects of his game? Weaknesses?

The 26-year-old centre forward is a notable presence in the box standing at 6ft 3in tall and his physical attributes stand as the strongest aspects of his game. Due to his big frame, Matić is a perfect target man in the box where he’ll exploit his impressive aerial ability. Matić is fantastic at hold-up play where he’ll drop back to collect balls and help his teammates in attack build-up as well. For a physically dominant player Matić is remarkably agile and quick while he also possesses fantastic technical abilities that allow him to beat opposition and break forward in style. His work rate and stamina will surely compensate for any shortcomings in his game.

Reason for leaving?

Bojan Matić was quite happy and satisfied at Mačva where he attracted plenty of interest from the likes of Vojvodina and, most prominently, Partizan. The Belgrade giants were the only Serbian team he’d consider joining and was thought to be on his way to put on a black and white shirt when Seoul presented him with a challenge that was too good to reject. Matić relishes a chance to prove his worth internationally, knowing that Seoul becomes his first foreign engagement.

Where do you think he would be best utilised with FC Seoul?

I believe Matić would be best deployed as a target man in a central position upfield where his commendable positioning would come quite handy in aerial play. He could become a spearhead on Seoul’s attack, equally utilised in piercing forward and spreading the play wide for Evandro Paulista and Anderson Lopes. I see him as a valuable option upfront where he too can be used at a left hand-side as well.

What should K League fans expect from him?

Fans could expect goals that’s for sure. K League supporters will surely be in for some exciting performances from Bojan Matić as well and should enjoy in long-range thumps as well as headers from close range.

Best moment with Mačva Šabac?

If we are to take a single moment from his time with Mačva Šabac that would definitely be the goal he scored in a 3-1 victory over BSK. It was a brilliantly placed shot from the edge of the box and into the top right corner, which left the BSK goalkeeper frozen in his tracks. And here’s a video of it as well.
