Predrag Danilovic, president of Serbian basketball federation, talked with media last night in Belgrade, when they presented the new jerseys for the National Teams with stars Bogdan Bogdanovic and Sonja Petrovic.
– Our male national team is going on a World Cup in China, that will be, in everyone’s opinion, the best championship of all times! I’m especially glad that we will travel to China with the best possible roster, if we are healthy. That just shows that Serbian jersey never lost its value, that it is still an honor and a challenge to play in that uniform and represent your country.
– Those who never worn national team jersey can only guess what it is like. I know what is the feeling. I hope that these players, from the moment they put on this jersey, will have that feeling and it will remain with them forever!
– Organization of Eurobasket is always a challenge, because when you represent Serbia, you have double obligation: to be a good host and to be successful as a national team. I’m sure we can do it both, because we have shown that we know how to organize competitions and how to get to sport results.
– Thanks to the help of State, our partners and friends, we managed to provide excellent conditions for all 12 Serbian national teams that are competing this year. Our goal is to be on Olympic games in Tokio with three national teams, that’s why this year is so important.
