Aleksandar Ciric

Serbian waterpolo superstar Aleksandar Ciric, who only recently retired from his national team, will be playing for Malta champions Neptunes next summer. He replaces close friend Vladmir Gojkovic as the second foreigner at the Balluta Bay club.

The thirty four year old has vast international experience having been a member of the Serbian national team at the 2008 Olympic Games. He also won the Bronze medal at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Ciric was also a member of the Serbian side that won silver medal at the 2008 European Championships which were played in Malaga after losing against Montenegro. His retirement from the national team has left many administrators and supporters in Serbia baffled.

Close friend Vladmir Gojkovic, who won the double with Neptunes last season, is set to come out of international retirement to play in the Olympic Games for the third time in his glittering career.
