Ex-Ghana boss Milovan Rajevac says Dominic Adiyiah will make a huge impact at Serbian side Partizan Belgrade after the striker joined the club on a loan deal.
The 21-year-old Ghanaian striker Dominic Adiyiah and will be attacking a second consecutive Serbian double with a much more competitive squad.
The AC Milan player, whose loan spell with Partizan will last at least until the end of the season, signed a clause in the loan contract which enables Partizan to potentially buy out his contract and sign a full deal in the forthcoming summer transfer window.
Rajevac, who handed Adiyiah his first place in the Black Stars squad, insists Partizan will be dangerous with the Ghanaian in the side.
“He is a very dangerous player, with a very low centre of gravity, explosive and quick,” said Rajevac, who is the currently the coach of Saudi side Al Ahli.
“He uses his head and feet equally well, but has yet to be given a real chance to show how much he is worth.” Rajevac insists Adiyiah’s potential is what led to his debut call-up into the Ghana squad at the World Cup in South Africa in June. “I called up Adiyiah into the World Cup squad and he made his debut against Germany in the last group game,” Rajevac said.
“It was actually his header in the dying moments of the overtime in the quarter-final against Uruguay that Luis Suárez stopped with his both hands and got a red card for it.
“Dominic took the responsibility to take the penalty, but was unlucky and the ball bounced off the crossbar. He was the best young player of his generation and undoubtedly has potential,” Rajevac said of Adiyiah. Adiyiah is a product of Ghana-based football academy set up by Dutch club Feyenoord.
He played his first senior professional football with Feyenoord Academy, then moved to Heat of Lions, where he stayed only during the 2007-08 season.
Adiyia then travelled to Europe and signed for Norwegian side Fredrikstad for €125,000. After shining at the Under-20 World Cup where he became the top scorer of the tournament and Ghana won the event, Adiyiah was contacted by AC Milan and moved to San Siro for a €500,000 transfer fee. Adiyiah was also part of Ghana’s squad at the 2010 World Cup, where he was trained by Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac.
