Confusing Zeljko Obradovic is a stretch but it happens as was the case in a recent postgame press conference

From absurd to funny, depending on the approach to the mistake occurring in the postgame press conference of the AdmiralBet ABA League Regular Season Round 16 contest between SC Derby and Partizan Mozzart Bet.

Ready to share his take on Partizan improving to 14-2 in the regional league, Zeljko Obradovic went in an entirely different direction after being introduced as Dusko. The coordinator was presumably thinking of Dusko Ivanovic, head coach of crosstown rival Crvena Zvezda Meridianbet.

Obradovic, 62, jokingly wondered whether the person responsible for the press conference knew his identity. “Dusko Obradovic” was the reply to his question extending laughs from the legendary head coach himself to everybody in the room. The experienced tactician went on to appear seeking a hidden camera considering the entire event some kind of set-up.

Matching up with Crvena Zvezda is actually the next game on the schedule. Heading to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 21, the Belgrade outfits will face each other Friday.
