OM's newest addition, Nemanja Radonjic, was born in Nis (February 15, 1996), just south-east of the Balkans, at the crossroads of Europe and the Far East. Radonjic joins Les Olympiens after Marseille and Belgrade Red Star agreed to terms for the transfer.

Radonjic is a product of the Radnicki Nis Academy; he is as comfortable with his right foot as his left foot. This youth phenom attracted early interest from Belgrade's two biggest clubs - FK Partizan and Red Star. He joined FK Partizan in October 2013 but departed after a few months to join AS Roma (February 2014).

The club, then led by Rudi Garcia, loaned him to Empoli - which was led by Maurizio Sarri  - to gain valuable match experience.

The Serbian then joined Cukaricki (2016) before a loan at Etoile Rouge (2017/18). He was selected for the 2018 World Cup with Serbia, facing off against Brazil (2-0) and Switzerland (2-1).

He was then transferred permanently to Red Star before now choosing OM.

Welcome Nemanja!
