BOJAN Djordjic has left the Seasiders ... an hour after playing for them.

The 29-year-old played in Pool’s Lancashire Senior Cup win over Manchester City yesterday afternoon, then his contract was paid up and he became a free agent.

Djordjic played alongside Elliot Grandin, Matt Hill, Mark Halstead and Gerardo Bruna as Pool moved into the semi-finals by beating City 2-1. The City team was mainly made up of youngsters from the club’s Elite Development squad, though it did feature Wayne Bridge at left-back.

City went ahead courtesy of Ahmad Benali’s 48th-minute strike but Stephen Husband equalised from the penalty spot and Louis Almond – back from a loan spell at Barrow – wrapped up victory late on. Halstead made a crucial penalty save shortly before the end.

Djordjic was signed in the summer from Hungarian club Videoton but the closest he got to the first team was as an unused substitute in the Carling Cup exit at Sheffield Wednesday in August.

After difficulties with his medical, Djordjic agreed a pay-as-you-play deal, which meant he was earning only around £90 a week.

Increasingly frustrated at a lack of chances, he was keen to move on and kickstart his career elsewhere.

Djordjic looks like being accompanied through the exit door by Miguel Llera.
