“One of the most decorated players in the game, Andrija formed an integral part of the 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2020 Serbian Olympic teams, winning two gold and two bronze medals in the process.
“In 2012 he was Olympic top scorer with 22 goals. At international level, Andrija has also helped the Serbian National Team win two World Championships and five European Championships.
“The Serbian has also won numerous honours at club level, most notably five Champions Leagues, two with Pro Recco, as well as victories with Partizan Belgrade, Red Star Belgrade and most recently with Hungarian side Szolnok.
“Prlainovic is currently playing for CN Marseille where he won the French championship for the past two seasons.”
