South Melbourne FC can confirm the signing of attacking midfielder Dragana Kljajić for the 2023 NPLW Victoria season.
Kljajić is a highly skilled attacking midfielder who is calm with the ball at her feet and lethal when pressing forward. This includes both at playing a ball through to the strikers or taking it herself to score for her team.
Originally from South Australia, she’s regarded as one of the finest midfielders in the state and has contributed to the Championship winning sides of Salisbury Inter and West Adelaide Hellas in recent times. Her form also saw her signed by A-League Women’s Club Adelaide United.
Most recently, Kljajić joins us following a stint in Scotland where she was part of the most recent Motherwell squad.
South Melbourne Women’s Football Director Theo Chronis said “I’m excited to welcome Dragana to Melbourne and to our very own South Melbourne. We have seen and heard plenty about her ability, so we are thrilled to bring someone into our club who will automatically add experience and quality to the middle of the park.”
Senior Women’s coach George Georgiadis said “We have been watching Dragana for a little while now and we are excited to finally see her in our colours. She’s a tremendously talented footballer with an incredible football brain. Whether she is creating for our attacking players or opening space for herself to score, we are excited at what she will bring our club and the league. We cant wait to have her experience in the middle of the park in the 2023 season. ”
We can’t wait to see her on Lakeside Stadium in 2023!
