Krasic regrets turning down Tottenham loan move

Since falling out of favour at Juventus the midfielder has claimed that he should have taken up offers from other clubs, but insisted that he will not make the same mistake again

Juventus midfielder Milos Krasic has revealed that he regrets not taking up offers from Tottenham and Zenit St Petersburg in January, but is adamant that he will make a move this summer.

The Serbia international thought that he would be given a chance to stake a claim in Antonio Conte's squad again but has failed to be handed the opportunity and will now look elsewhere in Europe for playing time.

The midfielder revealed that, although it was reported that numerous clubs were interested in him, the only clubs to make concrete bids were Spurs and the Russian outfit.

"At the end of the transfer window in January, there were offers from Tottenham and Zenit for a loan deal," Krasic told Vecernje Novosti.

"I decided to decline those options in the belief that I would be given chances at Juventus.

"That has proven to be a mistake and it would have been better if I had accepted one of those offers.

"There were many rumours about interest from Chelsea, but there was no contact with them and no offer. It was just paper talk."

Juventus are currently 9/4 with Paddy Power to win Serie A this season.

"I declined those options in the belief that I would be given chances ... [but] it is obvious that I have no place here"

Krasic has suffered a torrid time since impressing during his first campaign in Italy and claims that he has been "written off" by the management at the Turin side.

"It is obvious that there is no place for me here and that I have been written off," he added.

"I am sorry that I have to leave Juventus. No-one would be happy to leave such a big club, especially after enjoying such a good first season and then being written off by the coach.

"It is in my best interest to leave. At the moment I am trying to stay in good shape and preparing to find a new club in June."
