PGE Skra Belchatow – team

In the final, you defeated Arkas Izmir. How do you rate this tournament?

It was really very good and tough tournament. We are glad that we won it, because it makes us optimistic for the upcoming Supercup match with Asseco Resovia.

You spent your last season alongside Mariusz Wlazły. Was it a good time for you?

I think so. PGE Skra is a very strong club. During this season, I learned a lot. I had the opportunity to train with class players. I am very happy with this season.

National team of Serbia took ninth place at the Olympic Games. Are you happy with that result?

When I was little I always dreamed of playing at the Olympics. This year I got a chance to play and I think I used it well. We certainly could have played better. We are a strong and a young team. I hope that in the future we will achieve a much better result, and in four years in Rio de Janeiro I hope we will be in the top four.

Which surprised you the most on the Olympics?

There were very strong teams at the Olympics. Winners of medals, Russia, Brazil and Italy are at the moment the strongest teams in the world. However, Bulgarian national team surprised me because of the team’s leading player Matey Kaziyski left, also the coach Radostin Stoytchev.

What are your impressions after playing in the Olympics?

The Olympic Games are something special for each athlete. I’m glad I got the opportunity to play and be a part of this show. This is a great experience for me. At this point, I can’t find words to describe what I felt being there.

This will be your second season in Belchatow. How are you doing in Poland?

I like the Polish fans cheering. It is truly amazing that the halls are filled on every game, even during social events. There is no other country where volleyball is so popular. In Serbia we do not have so many fans so I’m glad that I’m here and I can play in front of full stands. In Poland, I feel good.

You are studying law. Have you passed all the exams?

After the Olympics I had a lot of free time to pass all the exams. Now I’m a sophomore. I learn when I have free time. I reach for a book, even when I’m tired. I am not in a hurry to finish college soon.
