- I had the invitation of Kosovo and they asked me to play for them. I will play for those who want me more. I would like to continue where I left off in the younger team, but if they don't want me, there is nothing I can do about it. If I could choose, I would stay in Serbia, this is where I was born, grew up, went through all the national teams... - said Zekaj recently and he added:
- I was available to the selectors, but there was no invitation. I don't know what happened there. The selector Ilija Stolica called me and he said that he would like to try some other players for one national gathering, but he is counting on me after that. However, I wasn't invited in the next actions. Are those some combinations of selectors, or some other people, I don't know, but they didn't count on me anymore.
