Krasic: I cannot wait to play for Fenerbahce

The former Juventus winger is thrilled to have completed a move to the Sukru Saracoglu outfit and stated he hopes to help his club defeat Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Cup
Milos Krasic has spoken of his excitement to have joined Fenerbahce, saying that he 'cannot wait' to play his first match for the club.

The Serbia international completed a €7 million transfer to the Istanbul club on Thursday after becoming increasingly frustrated at his lack of first-team chances at Juventus under coach Antonio Conte.

Krasic admitted that he is delighted to have finally found a new club after months of speculation and revealed he has been told wonders about the Turkish giants.

"Reto Ziegler told me incredible things about the club and the fans," he told FBTV. "He seemed to be impressed from his time at Fenerbahce and he would gladly join this team again some time.

"The Super Lig is difficult to win. There are many aggressive and tricky teams. I want to adapt to this league as soon as possible.

"Nikola Lazetic and Zoran Mirkovic told me great things about Istanbul and Fenerbahce. I was excited when I went to the Sukru Saracoglu stadium. I cannot wait to play a match in the Fenerbahce shirt."

The 27-year-old was then asked about the intense rivalry between Fenerbahce and Galatasaray, and he said that he is eager to help his new club defeat their domestic rivals.

"I know about the rivalry, Mateja Kezman told me all about it," he said. "Scoring against Galatasaray would be great, but winning as a team is more important."

Fenerbahce and Galatasaray next meet on August 12 in the Turkish Super Cup.
