Former Croatian international Mladen Petrić’s brief stint at English Premier League club West Ham has ended, with the striker signing for Greek side on Tuesday…
“I had other offers, but my wife wanted us to go to Greece for a while,” Petrić told Greek reporters at Athens airport when he arrived to sign a one and a half-year deal with Panathinaikos on Tuesday.
Petrić , who only played 3 matches for West Ham, will earn a reported 500,000 euro a year in Greece, but the former international will be more importantly hoping for match time.
“This is a good chance for me to come back into the national side and be available for the World Cup.”
