‘TO STOP OUT OF SPORTS’: Mijailović had a message for the leaders of other clubs – ‘Ten fans organized insult to the best coach’

The president of BC Partizan spoke about current topics.

The first man of the club from Humska Ostoja Mijailović was a guest of ‘Prva’ television, where he spoke about the current moment in the club and the team’s games under the baton of the legendary Željko Obradović.

– 12 wins and 2 losses at the start of the season, so we can be satisfied. One defeat in the Eurocup and one in the ABA league, and believe me, there is no team that won the trophy and won all the games. We had a difficult visit to Andorra, where we were defeated by half a basket, and that is how we won Juventud. We fought in the ABA league and we couldn’t win the derby. When he came Željko, Partizan has shown ambitions and it is a young team, talented, which will grow over time and we have an advantage over all other teams in that sense. Željko is the best European coach and we will fight for all the trophies with him. The burden is on their backs and it was done before the start and the season is long, remember that the season was interrupted in March 2020 when we could have won some trophy then, and we will simply do our best to make Partizan fans happy, he said Ostoja Mijailović.

Great wishes and pressure from the fans, there are.

– If you are not ready to deal with the pressure then this is not for you. We are not the only ones who want a trophy. Our goal is good organization so that no one gets hurt and to be fair and sporty cheering in the stands and to win trophies on the floor. I never liked it when teams off the floor were trying to do something. You have witnessed the organization of the last three ABA leagues, nowhere in Europe is there so much tension, attacks, hatred, quarrels, we want to overcome that. Simply each of us needs to give something, I had calls from many journalists and I did not respond to anyone’s comments and there were various guest appearances from the other side… The situation is simple, I came to this young and wanted to respond to everyone’s attack, and when you are dragged from the floor into this, you lose because I do not want to fight, but as a president, I am obliged to protect the players and coaches and all employees. In the last derby, I didn’t want to answer anything. They say an inflated balloon, and who inflated it? I have not participated in anything like that. Sport needs situated, successful people and independent of sports who respect their country and do not go to war with the other side. It should be a pride for all of us to build a national stadium, even though I am not in football, that is the message to the whole world. sport is the best ambassador in the world.

The return of the legendary Žoca, it’s a big deal for the club.

Željko returned in the strongest strength, with nine Euroleague won and that is a serious message for our country. Partizan is one of the biggest in Europe in terms of the number of fans and everything, and Željko showed it once more. Kari Pesic is a top expert with all my heart, I am with them to show and do more in national basketball. Pixie congratulations, great joy and I want it to last a long time. The three of them have returned to Serbian sports, and that is an indicator of the direction in which we should go, and we should organize everything better and respect something that will bring everything to a better level. In our derby of 10 organized fans, 40 minutes of insulting the best European coach, what is the message? He rose above everything and said nothing about it. Željko stopped the insult Čovića, and I did not participate or support, and some participated in insulting our people, our matches are an example to the whole of Europe because with these incidents we lose our reputation and we invest a lot of money and effort.

Also, Mijailović he also pointed out that tensions should be reduced.

– The administrations must stop dealing with non-sports matters and engage in sports and invest in sports, and not in spin news. The news came out that they did Kuruks i Zagorac beaten on the ground. These are things that are not true, and fans are people who come and cheer, and a lot of that comes from us and we have to respect each other to make everything make sense. People are not aware that it is dangerous when 17.18 thousand people come to the game, how dangerous it is to heat up the atmosphere because everything can have lasting consequences, he said.
