Grasshopper Club Zurich is delighted to announce the signing of Veroljub Salatic.

Vero Salatic is moving to the city on the river Limmat on a free transfer and has signed a two-year contract. After playing for FK Ufa and FC Sion, this is the midfielder's second return to GC. Vero Salatic already played for the Hoppers' senior team from 2003 to 2011 and from 2012 to 2015 and guided GC to cup glory as the team's captain in 2013.

Senior coach Uli Forte is delighted about the signing of the 33-year-old: "With his experience and history at GC, Vero will be a highly important pillar for the many young talented players at Grasshopper Club Zurich." Veroljub Salatic and Forte already worked together at GC from 2012 to 2013 and celebrated the cup win together.

Vero Salatic is also happy and looks forward to the fresh challenge in Zurich: "The focus for GC and me is now to look ahead. I want to contribute to giving GC more stability and am delighted to be back home!"

Vero Salatic will join the team tomorrow, 18 June 2019, and start his preparations for the new season. Grasshopper Club Zurich welcomes Vero back home and looks forward to the revived collaboration.

Grasshopper Club Zurich also wishes to take this opportunity to announce that Marco Djuricin has left the club after switching permanently to Karlsruher SC. We thank Marco for his commitment and wish him all the best and every success for the future.
