The 33-year-old Ajax playmaker was attacked by crooks on July 28 after driving home from a night out.


At the time Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claimed Tadic was involved in a physical altercation with the assailants.

And now the former Southampton ace has opened up on the horrifying ordeal to the same outlet.

He claims the robbers put a tracker on his car while he was out for dinner with a friend, before following him home and attacking him.

Tadic said: "I was having dinner with a friend. They placed a 'tracker' underneath my car so they could follow me.

"When I arrived home, two men tried to attack me. I then took a 400 meter sprint. I was wearing a suit and formal shoes and I was still faster than them.

"But then they got on their scooter and they managed to catch up with me. After that a fight broke out.

"I handed out a few punches. I moved left and right in order to separate the two which made me able to give a couple punches to their leader."

Tadic said one of the crooks "grabbed" his throat – but luckily he managed to escape their clutches and run away to safety.

He continued: "The other guy then grabbed me from behind at my throat but he received an elbow strike from me. After that I took another sprint and that's when I lost them.

"Afterwards you start to realize that things could have turned out different, but at that moment you are full of adrenaline and you just start fighting."

And Tadic vowed he would have fought off the robbers even if they were carrying guns.

The Ajax star revealed growing up in Serbia, who he is set to represent at this year's World Cup, had taught him how to fight.

He added: "Even if I saw that they carried three guns with them, I would never give up my pride.

"I am born in Serbia and as a child I have been in many fights. I felt good and strong."
