Sasa Kalajdzic started out his soccer in Austria Tipp3 Bundesliga and Regionalliga West, playing for Admira Wacker. Having scored 8 league goals in 15 games for Admira Wacker in 2018-19, Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart signed Kalajdzic before the 2019-20 season.
Kalajdzic made his debut for the Austrian national side on the 14th of October 2020 in the Nations League versus Romania at the Stadionul Ilie Oană – Ploiesti. He came on as a substitute in the 90th minute1. Kalajdzic has been quick off the mark and scored twice in Austria’s World Cup qualifier against Scotland in a 2-2 draw at Hampden Park in 20212.
Playing Style & Position
Despite his lanky frame and height, there is more to Kalajdzic’s game than just being a target man in the air. He is a technical player, relatively quick, and possesses great finishing ability. Being right-footed, his left foot isn’t much worse, making him a well-rounded center-forward.
