Savo sets a record

Savo sets a record

On this day in 1995, Villa completed the £3.5m club record signing of striker Savo Milosevic from Partizan Belgrade.

The Serbian marksman’s signing was initially questioned by many supporters, but over the course of the following three seasons he justified the fee by scoring 33 goals in 117 games, including a superb opener in the 1996 League Cup final triumph over Leeds United.
