“It has been only a week since I switched from playing to coaching, but so far I like it,” Antiga said for CEV. “It is a very difficult job, but also a great and exciting experience. We did not have much time to prepare for this tournament but nevertheless I think that we are ready. This tournament is extremely important for our national team. I think that Slovenia will be our toughest rival here in Wroclaw, since they have some very good players. However, mines are well prepared, they have been working hard and their only goal is to win. If we can afford it, I will use this tournament as an opportunity to use and test all players on our roster. However, if needed, I also know who the ones I can rely the most on are. Of course we have some leaders in the group, but a leader is not necessarily the best or the strongest player. It is also about character and attitude. Leaders are very important for the team, on and off the court.”
Poland’s Volleyball family is very impressed with Antiga’s achievements, his friendly demeanour and good knowledge of the Polish language.
“Yes, I am trying to speak some Polish. I still haven’t learned the lyrics of the national team because I did not have enough time but my children know them,” he said with a smile.
