For the second time in his career, Dejan Radonjic will coach a team outside former Yugoslavia. He did it with Bayern Munich and now he had an even bigger challenge with Panathinaikos, trying to restore the Greek powerhouse to its former glories.

Radonjic knows this era pretty well since he was an opponent of Panathinaikos with Buducnost and he was ready for a stroll down memory lane.

Before that, he talked about the decision to leave Zvezda and go to Athens, the wishes of Zeljko Obradovic for his new position, the goals of the team which can be set yet, and the need for Panathinaikos to add one more frontline player in order to complete the roster, even if this means a total of eight non-Greek players that can be all used in the EuroLeague, while six are permitted at the moment in the Greek league.
