Throughout the season we have had problems with injuries and in addition, we have achieved a great result. If I already can’t help in the game, then I’ll be courtside with Mega, where I will cheer on their way to new successes”,

“I expect operation and long recovery but I believe that I will come back from this injury stronger and to be ready for next season”,
