Andrič started his pro career in Serbia, where he played for Radnički Kragujevac and OFK Belgrade. On July 2016, he signed a contract with Belenenses and moved to Portugal. Last season, Andrič played 8 games in Primeira Liga, but failed to score and now he will try to get as many goals as he can while wearing Žalgiris colors.
"I want to score goals, make assists and help the team to win games. Belenenses had too many strikers. I didn‘t want to sit on the bench, I wanted to play, so I accepted an offer from Žalgiris. I hope that Žalgiris will be the best destination for me," said Andrič.
It didn‘t take long for him to show his skills. The day after joining Žalgiris, Andrič scored his first goal in the friendly game against FC Samtredia. Forward from Serbia showed good fighting spirit and left a positive impression on Žalgiris coaching staff.
