Are you satisfied with the life in Italy and how did you fit in the Perugia’s team?
“The life in Italy is much easier than in Poland, for sure. I’m glad that I’m a part of the strongest league in the world in my opinion. That’s exactly the reason of my move to Italy, because there will be a lot of strong and tough matches where I could make my playing style better. It was easy for me to fit in, because there are five Serbian players in Perugia. From the moment I came here, I felt like I was at home” – said Atanasijević at the beginning of the interview for WoV.
What is the main goal of the Sir Safety Perugia in this season?

Who is the best player in Italian Seria A at this moment?
“There are a lot of great players. I can’t choose any right now. But, Marko Podraščanin is one of the best”
Did you start learning Italian language?
“I have motivation to learn but it is tough for me because we are using Serbian language here too. I will need more time and it would be easier for me if I could stay alone, without Serbs. I’m taking classes of Italian, for now it’s ok”
Which girls are the prettiest, Italian, Polish or Serbian?
“Every girl is beautiful in her own way. But if I have to choose, I will gave advantage to the Serbian girls”
Do you miss PGE SKRA Belchatow’s fans?
