Paulo Obradovic, a returnee to the Croatian national team, moves to Turkey.
Obradovic (35), who played for Jug Dubrovnik in the past two seasons, signed a contract with the best Turkish club Enka (Istanbul), which won the national championship in the season 2020/21.
Obradovic started playing water polo in Jug Dubrovnik, and he played for Jug’s senior team on three occasions (2003 – 2012; 2014 – 2017; 2019 – 2021). Besides, he was a member of Primorje Rijeka (2012- 2014) and Olympiacos (2017 – 2019).
He has won trophies in the Champions League (2016 with Jug and 2018 with Olympiacos) and many trophies in national competitions in Croatia and Greece.
Representing Croatia, Obradovic won 10 medals at major competitions, including the Olympic gold in London in 2012, and the European title in Zagreb in 2010.
He wasn’t called up to the national team for six years (2015 – 2021), but he returned to the national team this summer and will play at the Tokyo Olympics.
After the end of the season, Obradovic negotiated with Radnicki Kragujevac. Some thought that he would stay at Jug. Still, he decided to move to Enka, where he will be welcomed by his fellow countryman and teammate in the national team Damir Buric.
Since the end of the club’s season three players have left Jug: Daniil Merkulov (Ferencvaros), Luka Loncar (Pro Recco) and Obradovic, while two have come: Konstantinos Kakaris, Stylianos Argyropulos (both Olympiacos).
Maro Jokovic, who left Brescia, is close to returning to Jug.
