Will they leave the Legion? Runjaiæ: It’s hard to imagine a team without these two. It’s unthinkable

13 goals, 10 assists – this is what Josue and Filip Mladenović have in common in the autumn round in the colors of Legia Warszawa. The Portuguese midfielder and the Serbian defender are stars not only in Kosta Runjaic’s team, but also in the entire Ekstraklasa.

No wonder that both aroused a lot of interest from foreign clubs. The situation is not surprising, especially since both contracts with Legia expire at the end of June. And for now, there are no indications that the contracts will be extended.

The problem of the capital club is finances. This is the main reason why no one has joined Legia in the winter transfer window. There are many indications that the team will be strengthened by Tomas Pekhart, who is to sign a contract until the end of the current season.

For now, it is unlikely that Josue and Mladenović will stay in Legia for the next season. – I do not want to charm, tell stories and leave a lot of illusions. For both to stay, a few things have to agree around. One of them is that they don’t have very high offers from other clubs. If this is the case, Josue and Mladenović would like to stay with us – Jacek Zieliński, sports director of Legia, said in an interview with TVP Sport.

“I would like them to stay with us, but I realize that they have their expectations, their age and may want to sign one or two very good contacts before the end of their careers. Ones that will secure their future. We are not able to compete with clubs from Turkey or Asia. This is not the financial shelf, he added.

Josue and Mladenović will leave Legia?

The coach of Legia – Kosta Runjaić also referred to the future of the Portuguese and the Serbian. “In half a year in football, the whole world can be turned upside down. But seriously: I can’t imagine our current team without these two. It’s actually unthinkable at the moment. Look at their statistics, they don’t lie,” said the German, quoted by the portal.

– Surely you have heard the saying: “everyone is replaceable, but not everyone can be replaced”. It takes time and players of the quality of Josue or Mladenovic to create a top team. We’re all aware of that – that’s the theory. We have to see if the club can keep them. We as a team can only contribute to this by showing them: you can succeed here. To do that, we have to fight for the league title and the cup to the end.

Josue has made 19 appearances this season, scoring eight goals and providing five assists. The Portuguese is the captain of the team. Mladenovic made 18 appearances, scored five goals and had five assists. The Serbian’s good performance in the league meant that he went with the national team to the World Cup in Qatar.
