  • For Mateja Kežman BATE was the last professional club. Famous Serbian who shined in PSV, Chelsea, Zenit St.Petersburg, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico de Madrid and Fenerbahce played for the Yellow-Blues for four months. Being a great sportsman and personality, Mateja contributed a lot to the training sessions of the Borisovites, becoming a fantastic example of commitment and professionalism for young BATE players. The only thing missing were the goals. Kežman failed to score even one goal in BATE jersey.

    Kežman appeared in BATE in August 2011. The circumstances were quite unfortunate for the club. Right after the away win against SK Sturm Graz in the UEFA Champions League play-offs, which meant breakthrough to the group stage for Viktar Hancharenka's team, leading BATE forward Vitali Radzionau was injured severely in the game against FC Dinamo Minsk. The bosses of the Yellow Blues had to search for another options in the attack with just three days remaining till transfer deadline. What is more, domestic Belarusian regularions made the club search only among free agents. The opportunity to sign Kežman came just in time.

    Mateja made his debut in the Belarusian Championship in the game against FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk, which ended goalless. After that Kežman became a regular member of the starting eleven, and helped the attacking power of BATE by drawing a lot of attention from defenders that enabled other players to use the space, but with no goals scored. Nevertheless, BATE's no. 99 assisted his partners twice. In winter 2011, when his contract with the Yellow Blues was over, Kežman decided to finish his glorious career.
