After spending a year and a half at Legia Warsaw, Nemanja Nikolić is changing clubs. The top scorer of the LOTTO Ekstraklasa has signed a contract with Chicago Fire, who feature in the American Major League Soccer. “Niko” – we thank you and best wishes!

Nemanja Nikolić became a Militarian player during the summer transfer window of the 2015 season, coming to Legia after his contract with the Hungarian team Videotonem FC expired. From the beginning, he became a vital forward of our team and heavily effected many of the scores for the Militarians.


In the colours of Legia he made his debut in the Polish SuperCup game agaist Lech Poznań (1:3). His first two goals for the Militarians came in his league debut, when Legia defeated away Śląsk Wrocław 4:1. In general, his time at Legia has been a big success. Last season he was crowned top scorer with 28 goals to his account, and this season again he is on top with 12 goals. In a total of 86 appearances for the Club, he has gained 56 goals. He played a vital part in all the success Legia gained in his time at Club – The Championship, the Polish Cup, qualification to the UEFA Champions League, and the achievement of finish third in the group stages of that tournament leading to the promotion to the Round of 32 of the Europa League.


“I feel, that I am part of something bigger. What is most important is that I collected titles with the Club and achieved our aims. It means a lot to me. I would not be happy at all if I were to score goals, win many games, but not gain any trophies with the team. Football is a team sport. Together we achieved success, and that is the most important. In the past year and a half, I have scored over 50 goals, it’s an amazing result. In my first year, I was scoring goals in the league from all angles, it was incredibly. From what I know, I beat a few Club records, a won some individual prizes. With the team, we also won a lot. In autumn, I managed to make my UEFA Champions League debut. I can say that I won everything I could. It’s incredible. I want to thank everyone for this year and a half, I send my regards to the fans and wish everyone well” – said the ex Militarian player.


Nemanja – all the best in your new Club! Thank you for your attitude on and off the pitch and we hope to see you again at #Ł3!


Tomorrow we welcome everyone to for a long farewell talk with “Niko” where we will summarise his year and a half and the Club!
