Zoran Tosic was born on the 28th April 1987 in Zrenjajin, located in Northern Serbia. He started his senior football career at the age of 17 with Prolteter Zrenjalin in 2004, and moved 2 years later to another local club Banat Zrenjalin. His potential was scouted by Partizan, which tipped him to make a big success of his football career. The famous Serbian club helped him grow and nurtured his potential. The deal with Partizan was supposed to last 4 years, and was signed on the 6th August 2007.
Before then, he had already earned 12 appearances for the Under 21 team of Serbia, scoring twice. Ever since 2007 and his transfer to Partizan, he appeared 12 times for the Senior side of his country, but scored no goals. With Partizan, he scored 9 goals in each of the two seasons he spent at the club. His 4 year deal was cut mid-way, for a reason that he couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t resist. The European Champions Manchester United came knocking!
Fergie thought the young Zoran had a part to play in the squad that was once again aiming to bring home all the competitions it participated it. ZoranÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s position will be on the left wing, similar to Park, Nani and Giggs, but can also play as an attacking midfielder. He signed for the club immediately after the transfer window opened, on the 2nd January 2009. Adam Ljajic was also transferred to the Red Devils but for reasons of age, was loaned back to his club to acquire more experience.
Sir Alex Ferguson had said that it would take at least until the end of February for Tosic to adapt to the game and make his debut. Apparently, according to news emerging from Manchester, Fergie has changed his mind. Tosic may have done enough in training to show the loyal Scot that he is capable of living up to the expectation. Ferguson may test him in the second leg of the Carling Cup against Derby at Old Trafford. Man Utd need to overturn a 1-0 away defeat to progress to the Final. If Tosic can help them do this, Stretford End may come up with a new song to sing.
