Antoni Sarcevic speaks out ahead of facing Bolton Wanderers following surprise transfer exit

Published

Bolton lost their captain Antoni Sarcevic to Stockport last month and with the two sides set to face off against each other in the FA Cup this week, the player has now spoken out about the game, telling the club’s official YouTube that he is looking forward to the fixture.

Sarcevic was a regular in the Bolton side, as they battled towards the top end of League One after achieving promotion from the fourth tier a year earlier.

He spent two seasons with Wanderers and played in nearly 50 league games for the side before suddenly deciding to up sticks and leave for Stockport.

It left Bolton without one of their key players – and their captain – in the middle of this push towards the play-offs. Now, after being drawn against his old side in the FA Cup, the player is now desperate to face off against Bolton and reunite with the club again – and he’ll also be hoping to be on the winning side.

Speaking to the club’s official YouTube, he said: “I can’t wait, as simple as that. I can’t wait. Even when you look at [how many fans] we took to Bolton last week, I was watching with my mum and dad and I just said ‘look at that’.”

Sarcevic won’t be the only one hoping to get one over on his former side in this clash, with Bolton fans no doubt eager to see the player again and hopefully one-up their former club captain.

When the two sides initially played each other in the competition, the result was a stalemate and Sarcevic didn’t play.

That can’t be the case this time around, as there will need to be a winner decided – and the player will be hoping it is him and will no doubt be hoping to play a part in the fixture too.

The Verdict

Antoni Sarcevic was a superb signing by Stockport and is a big loss to Bolton. He will be eager to prove he made the right call by stealing a win over his former side then in midweek.

Bolton themselves though will be just as determined not to lose to their former player’s new team. It will be an intriguing tie then to see who can have the last laugh after what was a very surprising transfer deal.
