“The MMMF tried to find a football club from Belgrade to donate football kit to. Somehow I step into contact with them and finally they chose my club FK Studentski Grad. In 2020, they donate to us 49 sets of track suits and jerseys, for two under age groups! This means so much to a club like us.
They came to Belgrade to visit the place where their favorite players spent their last day and night. In Hotel Majestic, where MU was located back in 1958, they made a commemorative plaque presentation.
There was also a representative from the British Embassy. Some of them were crying… Then they went to the JNA stadium (Yugoslav People’s Army), FC Partizan, FC Red Star and FC Studentski grad! They watched a match where our boys played in the new kit and then with great satisfaction they went to Munich on commemoration. There they were welcomed by Chairman and President of Bayern Munich F.C., Karl Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness, who were their hosts there.
Hundreds of MU fans were there to pay respect… After 62 years! They also have a song about the tragedy – “The Flowers of Manchester”. The song is about the match in Belgrade, their players, newspaper men, staff from airplane, who tragically died.
Having met them and after spending some time with those really great, entertaining and fun characters I have learned a lot! Generally, from this whole story there is a lot to be learned… A lot!”
