Union Berlin currently sit 8th in German Bundesliga table. Petar Musa, who should be part of Croatia U21 national team on the EURO in the summer joins the side for half a year with no option for permanent transfer.
“Petar wanted to try the Bundesliga and after a discussion with him, we decided to let him join Union. The club guaranteed us certain number of games in which Petar will start. It will be a big experience for him,” said Slavia manager Jindřich Trpišovský.
“It is a great challenge for me, I really wanted to try to play in the Bundesliga. It is important for me to play regularly before the U21 EURO,” Musa said.
“I will try to do my best, as I did in Slavia. Last year in red and white was the best in my career, the lads are fantastic here. Even when I did not play, I felt great because the company here was the best in my football life. There are many good players in Slavia, even those who do not start regularly. Jan Kuchta is playing great currently, he scores many goals, and I wish him only the best, we are friends,” Musa added.
