XP PSP e20: Aleksandar Jovanović, Jeju United FC defender

May 2nd, 2015

Aleks.jpgIn our 20th episode, host Dave Cunning sat down with 6'5" Australian defender, Aleksandar Jovanović, from Jeju United FC. Aleks is playing his third year of pro soccer in Korea, after previous stints in Australia, Thailand, and Serbia -- where he holds citizenship thanks to his family roots.

In the interview, Aleks discusses playing on a team where virtually no one else speaks English and other cultural challenges of living in Korea, the performance expectations placed upon import players, how the K-League stacks up against other pro soccer leagues, how many languages he speaks, Jeju United's recent coaching change and what they need to do to become a Asian Cup qualifying team this season, his goals and aspirations for the team and himself this year, and lots more.
