Mladen Matanovic: “Everything went very quickly thanks to Sportiw!”

Mladen Matanovic, Montenegrin forward, joined last summer a French club. In an exclusive interview, he tells us how Sportiw allowed him to get in touch with the French club, and sign there…

How did you discover Sportiw?

I was looking for a new club because in Montenegro there are very few opportunities. I did my research on Instagram and by chance came across an offer from Sportiw! Then I clicked on the link and signed up so I could create an account and complete it!

Tell us how you could be spotted by the French club on Sportiw?

Indeed, I was contacted rather quickly by the French club of “Elan Tursan”. They were looking for a player with my profile. They spotted me on Sportiw, then they examined my profile and viewed my videos. We then exchanged via the internal messaging system to discuss the terms and the contract. Everything went very fast, it’s pretty crazy, because a few days later, at the beginning of October, I signed there!

What did the Premium bring to you when you were looking for a club?

It turns out that I had indeed taken a Premium account for 3 months, and I do not regret it! When you’re Premium on Sportiw, your chances to get spotted and seen by recruiters are multiplied by ten! If I hadn’t been Premium, I wouldn’t have had so much visibility, and Elan Tursan might not have spotted me…

Do you have any advice for other players regarding their use of the platform?

I will tell them that it is important to update their profile on Sportiw very regularly! If I hadn’t done it, I would never have been so visible. It is important to update your informations every week or two. That’s what I did, indicating that I was available but also my projects, my videos, etc…

"Now with the Sportiw's wall, recruiters can see every time we post something. It gets their attention even more!"

If you had to describe Sportiw in a few words...

Awesome! I am very grateful to Sportiw for giving me the opportunity to find a club and I hope the community will continue to grow and create great stories like mine!
