Nothing will be the same after May 19th, 2019. A great player of Partizan and of Serbian football, Sasa Ilic, retired. "He hanged up boots" and he went on into the history of Black and Whites as one of the greatest legends of the "football temple" in Humska.
Although Grobars (Partizan supporters) wanted him to play a bit more, Sale decided to end his career at the age of 41, and he played the last game against Proleter in the victory of Black-and-Whites with 2:0.
At the 81st minute, Sale left the court and he ran his last lap. His wife Tijana watched everything from the bench. They have been married since 2006. Sale has run the last honorary lap under a great rain, with his son Niksa.
As she watched her husband who was becoming immortal in Humska, his better half couldn't hide the tears. The feelings erupted, and the reporters captured the incredible outburst of emotions on Tijana's face.
The photos which will touch the hardest hearts.
