Gettin' Shirty: Milivojevic reveals iconic name on back of childhood shirt

7 May 2019

Throughout the season, the official Palace programme have been finding out which shirts have meant most and why to the Crystal Palace squad. Here, captain Luka Milivojevic reveals six of the most special kits to him...

What was your first shirt as a kid?

It was from an ex-basketball player who played in Spain, and he brought me a Zinedine Zidane shirt when he was at Real Madrid.

What were you wearing on your pro debut?

That was in Rad Belgrade back in 2008/09, and they play in light blue shirts. It was a nice one and I liked it a lot!

Which is the most special shirt you've worn?

It would have been a Red Star shirt from one of our derby games against Partizan Belgrade – they’re always massive games.

Best player you've swapped shirts with?

I don’t swap shirts usually but when I was young I swapped with Javier Pastore when he was playing for Palermo and I played against him for Rad.

Who was the last player you swapped shirts with?

It was Nemanja Matic when we played against Manchester United last season, who I obviously play with for the Serbian national team.

Which is the best shirt of all time?

It would have to be any Red Star Belgrade shirt!
