After Krka in Slovenian Cup finals smoothly ugnala Swallow (66:33), you have come to the first laurels as head coach. Therefore medal will have a special place in the personal showcase?
It did not much thinking. I do not see myself as a newcomer in the club. Even before the appointment I was part of this team, part of the headquarters. I could address Slovenian champion, of course, happy. I am also the attitude of our boys on the field. Good work and appropriate behavior. First prize in the form of their Cup already. Krka club should strive for laurels, but only this can not change the pattern. The final victory was not to be ugnati national champions basketball typhoons or Olimpija Ljubljana. Ugnali You Swallow So club from the lower part of the Slovenian championship rankings. In such matches it is probably essential, how coach motivates his team … I know where you rate this issue. True, he can not collect and sharpened addressed the team, which is significantly weaker on paper. But when the cup game, everything is much easier. Movement of the final result and the difference proves that the boys take the match very seriously. I was on this occasion congratulated the Basketball Club Swallow breakthrough in the grand finale. Their success is a beautiful story of Slovenian basketball club.
Cup competitions often served with surprises. Swallow certainly falls into this category. Perhaps it may be the story of this club the inspiration for many people. I believe, however, that the audience would probably prefer to see a more exciting final game. But in Krka opponent does not choose. These questions are not even want to deal with. Do you agree with the thesis that Krka misses stronger Olympia? When osvajaš cassia, strong Olimpija not miss. I admit, however, that the Novo mesto-Ljubljana rivalry is one of the symbols and pillars of the Slovenian basketball. Moreover, I would argue that Slovenian basketball simply needs a strong Olimpija, who will also play in Europe. The first Cup in Novo showcase, but the season is not over yet … It’s true. There is still a lot of work. They are waiting for the decisive matches in the league ABA, where we have to prove that it does not judge the very bottom. Followed by the national championship. But this will be considered next month. But anyway … Is the objective of Krka’s eighth national title? Being at the top is the eternal goal of our club. You are now a true Novo mesto. What would you say to dolenjska capital? This is a basketball city? Yes. Still. I like to live and work in an environment in which the basketball precedence over football. I admit, in part, we lost contact with our loyal audience. For this reason, I’m making a little disappointed. But I hope and believe that we can fans with victories back into the hall.
