'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dejan's back on the South Coast

Dejan Stefanovic had always said he wanted to return to the South Coast in a playing or coaching capacity, as seemed more likely, although the playing capacity seemed impossible when he retired almost 2-years ago with a knee injury...

This return has happened though as he has come out of retirement to join Hampshire's second biggest club, Havant & Waterlooville, as a player-coach.

Dejan, as he told The Mail, said he had 'missed playing' so wanted to return and believes that he has found the right club to kick-off a coaching career: 'Havant are a good club for me to start my coaching career.'

Quite how much the soon to be 36-year-old will play remains to be seen although if/when he does turn out for The Hawks I am sure that the watching Pompey fans, and there always are some in the stands at Westleigh Park, will give him a fantastic reception.

    This is the start of Dej's management career, he said he wanted to learn the trade and one day manage Pompey; I watched him say it and i have to say i believed him.

    I remember reading that russell, and I wouldn't mind him coming back here one bit (found the article:- http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/sport/Stefanovic-One-day-my-vision.6387060.jp) . Quality defender and a great captain, who could alse hit a decent free kick.

    uktony that will be Prince Charles then I presume? He still lives in Pompey and has kid at school in Southsea - not Prince Charles but DJ.

    Dejan was a tremendous asset to Pompey, hopefully his knees will stay in shape and he can get some quality game time in while he pursues his coaching/managerial future.
