Local media report that the retired Partizan Belgrade, Anderlecht, and Gent striker took his own life in his rented Belgrade apartment over the weekend after saying “I can’t take this anymore”.

His heartbroken partner and singer, Ivana Stanic, told the media: ‘We had an ideal relationship, everything was great.

Former Serbian footballer, Miljan Mrdakovic, 38, commits suicide after saying ?I can?t take this anymore?

‘But he had problems, he liked to drink and I think that, in addition to the problems he had with depression, is the main reason why he did it.

‘After the end of his career, he struggled to cope because football meant everything to him. 

Advertisements

‘He started working as an agent, but it is a job where sometimes you have work and earnings, sometimes you don’t. He was depressed and anxious.

‘The day before the suicide he drank a little too much and I felt like something bad could happen. I calmed him down, dragged him to bed and we talked all night.

Advertisements

‘When we woke up, he started drinking. I froze when I saw a gun next to him. I cried and asked him to put it away and I called his mother to talk to him.

‘I asked him to come with me and went to the bathroom to get dressed. Every now and then I looked at what he was doing and then suddenly I heard a shot. I ran away from the apartment and called the paramedics.’

Mrdakovic played for twenty clubs across 10 countries including Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal and Maccabi Tel Aviv in Isreal. He also played nine matches with Serbia U21s and three times for Serbia at the 2008 Olympics.

Former club Maccabi Tel Aviv posted a statement, reading: “Maccabi Tel Aviv is saddened to learn of the passing of the club’s former Serbian striker, Miljan Mrdakovic, who died in tragic circumstances on Friday in his native Belgrade, aged 38.

“Mrdakovic played for Maccabi in the 2006-07 season under then-coach Eli Cohen, and as a 24-year-old he made an immediate impression when in the opening round of the season he scored a spectacular goal against Beitar Jerusalem as he beat three defenders in a solo run that began in his own half before unleashing a powerful shot from the edge of the area.

“That season was his only campaign with Maccabi Tel Aviv in which he scored eight goals and set up four others in 29 appearances. After leaving Maccabi he moved to Portugal.”

He wanted big car, house in Lekki like Psquare – Jude Okoye gives reason for sacking May D

The former manager of the now-defunct P-Square, Jude Okoye, has responded to allegations of maltreatment made against him by singer Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D.

Advertisements

May D had in a series of tweets on Sunday revealed his ordeal under Jude Okoye who is also the elder brother to Paul and Peter, formerly known as Psquare.

Advertisements

May D said he had no personal bank account despite releasing hit songs, adding that he was maltreated under Square records.

Advertisements

The singer further claimed that he shared the boys quarter in the Okoye’s home with their cook and slept on cartons and was not given the credits for writing their ‘Invasion’ album.

Advertisements

May D was reacting to a tweet where a fan had accused him of leaving Psquare in 2012 because he (May D) was being greedy.

Advertisements

But speaking in an Instagram Live chat with blogger Tunde Ednut on Sunday, Jude, said, “I treated him as a brother, gave him a platform, flew him across America, put him on a show with Akon, and gave him a home in my place.

Advertisements

“We treated him as a family. We spent over $100k. When I saw potentials, I gave him a contract.

Advertisements

“He came back after 2 weeks asking that he needed incentives: A big car, a house in Lekki, and more, just like the Square. I said no. Paul spoke to him, he said no. I told him to go.”

Recall that Cynthia Morgan also made a similar allegation against Jude Okoye

However, Jude had since dismissed Cynthia Morgan’s claims while telling his side of the story.
