In difficulty at OM , Nemanja Radonjic was loaned to Hertha Berlin during the second half of last season. Without much success. This summer, it is therefore towards Benfica that it flew, again in the form of a loan. But since the start of the season, the Serbian had not had the slightest minute of play in the Championship. A worrying situation given the fact that the purchase option, estimated at 8M €, included in the loan will be exercised according to a certain number of matches played. But this weekend, Nemanja Radonjic finally launched his season. Came into play against Vizela , the Serbian winger was very interesting in a role of piston, being even at the origin of the only goal of Benfica which was essential on the wire (1-0). Great news for OM .
Radonjic is finally playing at Benfica
The coach of Benfica , Jorge Jesus , is also delighted to the performance of Nemanja Radonjic . “For Radonjic, this is absolutely nothing new, he was already playing in this position in Serbia and even played like that against Portugal, he knows the right piston position”, assured the Portuguese technician at a press conference. An opinion shared by Darko Ristic , the representative of Nemanja Radonjic . “He made a good entry on the right, as a piston. He has already played a lot in this position in selection. Some say it's his best job. He is fully in shape and ready to give his best for the team. He is very happy to work under the orders of Jorge Jesus ”, launches the agent of the Serbian international in the columns of Record whose remarks are reported by Foot Mercato. Therefore, the OM can now hope that Nemanja Radonjic has a more important role in Benfica , which could allow to consider that the purchase option, estimated at 8M €, is exercised at the end of the season. Which still seemed unthinkable in recent days given the starving playing time of the Serbian international.
