Partizan Belgrade president Ostoja Mijailovic hinted at the club’s efforts to recruit Zeljko Obradovic and appoint him as head coach for the first time in almost 30 years.
“For people like him, Partizan is more than a sport, it’s a relationship that is not based on material compensation,” Mijailovic stated to Serbian outlet Kurir when asked how possible it is for the club to hire Obradovic given his value on the market. “I’m in communication with him, we talk about everything. Let time show the results.”
Mijailovic also mentioned that an Obradovic return to Partizan will be a benefit for the Serbian basketball scene overall.
“Zeljko Obradovic is one of the greatest Partizans I know, a basketball icon painted in black and white. The eventual return of Zeljko Obradovic to Partizan would be proof that Serbia is the center of European basketball.”
Obradovic said earlier in June that he will be taking a decision regarding his future and whether he will be coaching a team or not by the end of the month.
