Matija Sarkic: Millwall boss Neil Harris pays tribute to ‘radiant’ goalkeeper

17 June 2024 Off By Total Football News

Sarkic, who was born in Grimsby, played youth team football for Belgian side Anderlecht before joining Aston Villa.

He had loan spells with Wigan, Stratford Town, Havant & Waterlooville and Livingston before a permanent move to Wolves in 2020.

Loans at Shrewsbury Town, Birmingham City – where he made 23 appearances during the 2021-22 season – and Stoke City followed before his move to Millwall.

Fans have been laying flowers and other tributes at Millwall’s stadium, The Den, where a book of condolence has also been opened.

“Mati was truly proud to represent us and the book will be signed by a lot of people,” added Harris.

“In the coming weeks and months, there will be various tributes – we’ve already started talking behind the scenes about how we can pay our respects and honour Mati’s life but also his time at our football club.”
