Mirko Vučinić, one of our best players of all time, has devoted himself entirely to golf, reports Vijesti on March 15, 2018.
It’s too late for a top career in this sport, and surely he will never reach the glory he has made on the football field, but he has an apparent desire to progress.
Vučinić is taking part in the Italian International Golf Championship, not as an honorary guest or attraction, but as an equal competitor.
The Italian Golf Federation proudly pointed out his presence at the tournament in Vernola, near Lecce.
"Mirko Vučinić, after 107 goals in Lecce, Roma and Juventus, wants to prove himself as a golfer at the International Championship in Italy," saif the Twitter profile of the Italian Golf Federation.
Vučinić, during the tournament, spoke with reporters about local football themes, too.
He said he would support Lecce in the decisive matches for the return to Serie B.
"I played in Roma and Juventus, but the jersey of Lecce is something special for me that carried unique emotions and was the best period of my life. I will come to Via del Mare when the decisive matches are played," Vučinić said.
Lecce is first in Serie C, Group C, with seven points more than Trapani with realistic chances to directly advance into the second league.
