The Serbian vice-champions RK Zeleznicar Nis made a respectable team capable to win the first ever domestic title led by legendary player and coach Veselin Vujovic. The 57-years old Vujovic dismissed offer from Orlen Wisla Plock to accept challenge with Serbian teams who will compete at SEHA Gazprom league and EHF Cup in upcoming season.
Vujovic talked for Balkan-Handball.com about possibility to sign two players – ex-RK Vardar goalkeeper Strahinja Milic and TOP scorer of Men’s U20 EHF EURO 2018, Slovenian left back Gregor Ocvirk.
- We want Milic, not only Zeleznicar, but a lot of teams in Europe. However, there is only one condition to realize that proffesional sport is hard work, blood and tears. This is the only way to make good results. He didn’t leave Skopje because of his qualities, but for non-proffesional approach. If someone told him to come after summer break with 15,20 less, and he came with 15 kilos more, this is disrespect to the club and people. He losing the most. I called him as 15-years old boy in NT of Serbia and Montenegro, following his entire career, I took him to Vardar after problems with RK Partizan. He has huge respect to me and I know that he is a good person. I would like to see him in Nis, that could help us a lot, but I don’t want to put any clausule in contract – said Vujovic and added his comment for RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko member, Ocvirk:
- He could be interesting signing for us, but we don’t want to make a player for Celje. We aren’t interested in one-year loan, as we want to get from him the best during his time in Nis. With his qualities, he could help also some other players to become better. Celje PL don’t count on him seriously in this moment.
