A bright young talent from Serbia
Milan Gajic was born on 28th January 1996 in Vukovar, Serbia. He started playing football at an early age with local club OFK Belgrade, and turned professional shortly after turning 17. He soon proved himself as one of the best wing backs in the Serbian top flight.
Between 2013 and 2015 he made a total of 50 appearances for OFK Belgrade, scoring 5 goals.
His remarkable performances did not go unnoticed, and he was soon called up to the Serbian national youth team. After six caps with the under-17s he move up to the under-19s with whom he travelled to the European Championships in Hungary in 2014. Milan won a total of 17 caps at the U17 and U19 levels, but the best was still to come.
In June 2015, Milan travelled to New Zealand with the Serbian squad for the U20 World Cup, hoping to succeed the France U20 side led by Paul Pogba as world champions. Milan was a pillar of that U20 team (six starts, nine caps), and many observers considered him to be the best wing-back of the tournament. After a superb run of performances, Serbia beat Brazil in the final to raise the trophy - at just 19 years of age, Gajic was already a World Cup winner!
Milan made 14 league appearances for the Girondins in the 2016/2017 season, starting 11 of those games. He is still regularly called up for international duty, as he continues to progress and grow as a player.
