The indescribable feeling you get when you win a football match is what drives me on!
I grew up in Belgrade, Serbia, and that was where I started playing football, in a boys’ team, just before my seventh birthday. Over the course of my career as a football player, I have always had to work hard to achieve my goals, but I have had the constant support of my family, coaches and teammates. I currently play at the Swedish club FC Rosengård in Malmö and I love it here. I would like to give an extra shout out and thanks to all the fans who have supported the team and me. It means so much to us, and together we are growing women’s football. When I have time off from football, I try to relax, and for me the best way to do that is to read a book or play Fifa.
Being a football player is a passion of mine, and after my active career I can see myself becoming a football coach, preferably for a major-league club somewhere in the world.
All the best! Jelena
