Predrag Rajkovic, who joined Maccabi Tel Aviv FC in August 2015 from Red Star Belgrade completed his move to Stade de Reims of League 1 in France for an undisclosed fee.

Rajkovic, who travelled to Holland with the team for pre-season, was given permission to leave the camp and head for France where he joined Reims which finished last season 8th in the table.

In the four seasons Rajkovic played at Maccabi, he won 1 League Championship, 2 Toto Cups, and played in the Champions League group stage and Europa League group stage on two more campaigns whilst keeping 97 clean sheets of the 202 appearances he made in all competitions.

Maccabi Tel Aviv’s CEO, Ben Mansford, told the club’s official website: “Rajko was a standout performer for Maccabi last year and he was rated as one of the best Goalkeepers in Europe. On top of this, Rajko has a quite impressive CV for a Goalkeeper of his age, which includes over 200 senior appearances and international recognition from Serbia. Therefore, it is no surprise there was interest in him and this resulted in offers from Stade de Reims and ultimately this transfer been concluded. Rajko has been a pleasure to have in the squad and his presence on and off the pitch will be missed but it is pleasing to have him leave his 4 years at Maccabi as a Champion. Thank you Rajko and good luck!”.
