„Being a coach is being a leader in some way. First of all, a coach is an educator. In order to teach others, one must firstly and constantly find new ways to make a personal progress and accept all persons, and learn from them. He must respect the opinion of others. A coach is a spiritual leader of every team. The very fact that every day for the past ten years I have been working with children and young people, and  during those ten years I had coached somewhat more than 300 children, and that I had achieved some remarkable results with them (not only in competition), speaks of the way I work and of my abilities as a coach, and as of a leader as well. Working with children and young is what fulfills me and during the training, I tend to, first of all, help them develop into psychically and physically healthy persons, and future basketball players. That is my mission.“
