Tosic now at CSKA

Many Premier League fans will remember Zoran Tosic for his short spell at Manchester United where the player only managed 79 minutes of Premier League football.

However, after having left the England side that player went to Russia where he has established himself as a valuable player of CSKA Moscow.

Zoran Tosic first came to Manchester United in 2009 from Partizan Belgrade. Ferguson agreed to pay a fee of £7million for a player that was supposed to develop into one of the biggest talents in the world. Indeed the player managed to score 18 goals in just 61 matches in his home country, and this has prompted the Manchester United manager to sign him.

However, when he came to the Premier League, the player will fail to make an impact immediately. He spent most of his time playing for the reserve teams but did make some great performance at times for Manchester United. But with Cristiano Ronaldo in the team at that moment it was going to be very difficult for him to get a breakthrough in the team. He will only manage 5 appearances for the senior team, and all of them will be coming from the bench.

After failing to establish himself in the team, the player will go on loan to Cologne where he will manage to score 5 goals in 14 matches for the German team. However, he will still fail to get a place in the team when he returned at Manchester United, and this will cause him to leave for CSKA.

Zoran Tosic said that he now has regret for leaving Manchester United. He believes that it would have been better for him to stay and fight for his place but rather he chose to leave. At the moment he said he wants to focus on CSKA and make sure he win trophies with the club.
