Sergej is yet another proof of the old adage “the apple never falls far from the tree”. He was born in the family of sportspeople – his father Nikola was a decent football player and mother Milana was one of the best basketball players of Yugoslavia. His younger brother Vanja is a talented goalkeeper who also plays for the same club. Sergej is a product of Vojvodina Novi Sad academy – club very well known for its graduates, such as Vujadin Boskov, Slavisa Jokanovic or Milos Krasic, Dusan Tadic and Gojko Kacar recently. Milinkovic-Savic is a midfielder with incredible height, refined technique and feeling for the game.
