He is making thing much more simple. He is the best coach with whom I worked in my career. It is amazing how he preparing the matches, how deep respect has for his players, and all 16 of them are satisfied in the locker room. That means something. He knows when to relax the team, when to become more serious. I feel sorry that there are no such a lot of vibration about him in TOP handball as he deserved that. He deserved for all what he did in Barcelona for these seven years. He is one of the best in the world, for me, the best – concluded Saric his comment about the coach with whom Barcelona won the VELUX EHF Champions League twice.
