THE OLD FLAME OF PARMA VS. ATALANTA: ZLATAN MUSLIMOVIC

Parma, 27 July 2020 – Zlatan Muslimovic is the Old Flame of Parma vs. Atalanta, the last fixture that the Crociati will play at the Tardini this season.

Of Bosnian origins and a Swedish passport holder, Muslimovic’s first experience in Italy came at Udinese at the start of the new millennium. He made his Serie A debut in 2001 before being loaned out on various occasions: he wore the shirts of Perugia, Pistoiese, Ascoli and Padova on a temporary basis.

He signed for Rimini in 2004/05 and experienced one of his most important seasons: he found the net 15 times in 32 appearances, making a decisive contribution to the team’s promotion to Serie B. He played for Messina the following year, the first season where he played Serie A football on a consistent basis. He ended that campaign with four goals in 25 matches.

In 2006/07, Muslimovic joined Parma. While at the Crociati, he played 29 games in the league, three in the UEFA Cup and three in the Coppa Italia. In total, he scored five goals. After his spell at the Tardini, he moved to Atalanta, where he found the net twice in ten games. He went on to wear the shirts of PAOK, Beijing Renhe, Zavrc and Koper.
