This player has won 9 consecutive championships in 3 different countries
Ljubomir Fejsa is a professional soccer player born in Serbia. He currently plays for Benfica Portugal. This midfielder has the not insignificant sum of 10 titles (9 of these won consecutively) in 3 different countries. Fejsa has become accustomed to the fact that every year he raises the trophy of the country where he plays, whether in Serbia, Greece, or Portugal.
The 29-year-old Serb was born in Vrbas, in the province of Vojvodina, in the north of the Balkan country. Fejsa began his career in the late Hajduk Kula, the only club in which he won no title. However, thanks to his performance, Fejsa came to the all-powerful Partizan of Belgrade. In this team, Serbian won 3 national Superliga playing 49 games and scoring 2 goals.
Despite his low participation, Fejsa was bought in about 3 million euros by Olympiacos F.C, where he won 2 league titles in the 2 years he was there (2011-2013). Then, he arrived at the great Benfica in Lisbon, in mid-2013, for an amount of 4.5 million euros. The player arrived being the replacement of his compatriot Nemanja Matic, who left for England's Chelsea.
From that moment and until now, Fejsa has achieved all the national championships. Despite several injuries and not having a showy game, Fejsa has managed to gain recognition and respect from his teammates. Additionally, the player has managed to participate in at least 1 match during all seasons.
The only player in competition who has a similar record in Europe is the Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who "only" won 8 consecutive leagues in 3 countries when he played in Ajax of the Netherlands, Inter, Juventus and Milan in Italy, and in Barcelona of Spain
The midfielder could be considered King Midas of soccer, since each team that he plays for becomes a champion. In fact, there are several European teams that could consider having the Serbian to break negative streaks. For example, in England Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham could consider hiring the player, since they have not been able to get the title of the league for decades.
Even last year, Tottenham was interested in buying Ljubomir Fejsa to win the league after 58 years without being able to raise the cup. The Serbian is valued at about 18 million pounds.
Currently, Fejsa regularly plays in SL Benfica of Liga Sagres. In the last game of his team, against Desportivo Aves, Fejsa played the 90 minutes and was reprimanded. At the moment, the Benfica of Portugal is second in Primeira Liga, just 2 points behind the leader Porto, with which they face on April 15 at the stadium of the Eagles. If Benfica becomes the champion one more time, the legend of Fejsa will continue and will complete a full decade celebrating titles and proving to be a guarantee of championships.
