From IHF officially voted as the best goalkeeper of all time, French miracle from THW Kiel, Thierry Omeyer talked about legendary Yugoslav and Croat collegue, Mirko Bašić, with a great honour:
– He was one of the typical goalkepper from Yugoslav school. He was specially fantastic for a wings shots and for shots at close range. I meet his at the end of his career, when he played for Vitrolles. He was my big inspiration.
