Milosevic trying to remain upbeat

Hannover 96 center back Alexander Milosevic insists he is willing to give everything he has to help the club avoid relegation this season.

The German top-flight’s bottom club have lost their last six league matches in a row and face another tough test against Borussia Dortmund this weekend, but Milosevic is trying to stay positive.

The defender arrived on loan from Turkish club Besiktas during the winter transfer window last month and pledged to give 100% to helping them battle the drop.

“It’s the first time in my career that I fight against relegation,” Milosevic told Hannover’s official website.

“The only thing I can do personally is to play in every training session and in every game where I get the chance to give 100 per cent.

“I’m not someone who looks down and says that we need so many points in the next game. I just want my team to win. We are trying to stay positive at all times.”

Hannover have faced their fair share of injury problems this season and will go into the match against BVB Dortmund without captain Christian Schulz, Adam Szalai and Hugo Almeida.
