  5. rbfan Says:

    he’s albanian but holds a montenegrain(sp?) passport.

  6. Walter Says:

    his team is now starting to take shape.

  7. Boots Says:

    yea…he’s ethnic albanian who’s family is from montenegro.

    Sacir is the serbo-croatian way of spelling “Shaqir” in albanian. Its pronounced Sha- Cheer (first part of shakira’s name and like the first part of cheerios) Hot isnt pronounced as the same word we describe temperature. more like “thought” without the T…”hought”.

  8. mgp Says:

    Thanks Boots!

    And welcome to the squad Sacir.
