Interview with coach Vladan Glavinic - Jun 28, 2018

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Glavinic had a chance to talk to coach Vladan Glavinic .Vladan has been coaching many of the Serbian youth Nationall team players, as well he was Head coach of the Serbian teams BC Torlak and BC Vizura. After over 10 years of coaching experience in Serbia, basketball career took Vladan to Lebanon .
Al Moutahed, Tebnin then finally Homentment team. Last 2 years were very special . Assitant coach of Lebanese NT, National championship winner, Cup Winner, Arabic Cup winner. Vladan is very prospective relatively young coach with already acquired a respected name in Serbia and Middle East.
Vladan is well know as a hard working, motivating and enthusiastic coach who know how to play a modern and attractive basketball, with strong and aggresive defense as a base together with a lots of transitiion offense and easy points .

Coach , thanks for taking time to speak with us. It looks like last 2 years are very impressive with many awards and achievements? Could you maybe tell us a little bit of ? How it all started?

First, I am honored to speak with such as prestige site as is. Thanks for having me.
Well, it looks like last 2 years pays off for all the hard work that I put in as a coach, but I believe it all started much earlier and its just result of really hard work .
For me it all started growing up in great place and country to play and coaching as the Serbia is . Following basketball from my early chilhood, all this Serbian superstars from 80s and 90s just motivated me to try to follow my dream . Well, I was lucky enough in very first days of my coaching career to spend time next to coach Dragisa Saric who helps me a lot to build my way . As well there were many great players and currently active Euroleague, Adriatic league players who made our job easier at the time. As well, I was coaching for a few years as head coach senior team of BC Torlak where I just was able to implement all the previous experiences as an assitant coach and shape my own way. Thats roughly about my first basketball years .

Could you tell us little bit more about your time in Lebanon and basketball over there ?

Well, I definitely could say its my second home and for sure second basketball home as I spend almost 5 years of my coaching career and life there . Its just incredible jorney. Both, basketball and cultural wise .
Its such an amazing historical country, where diferrent religions match up together , with beautiful landscapes and with crazy basketball fans who are so passionate for this sport . Maybe people from Europe are not so conscious about the quality of the league here . Well there are names such as Hasan Whiteside ( Miami Heat ), Ramel Curry, Jeremiah Massey etc who played here. This season in my team we had Walter Hodge and Sam Young well-known Euroleague names. But on the other side there is huge difference beetwen imports and most of the local players which make league very specific .

You have been coaching National team of Lebanon, could you tell us little bit more about Lebanese players and future of National team ?

Well, there is a new generation of very talented players coming up, with bright future ( of course with proper and hard work ). The biggest name and the best player in history of Lebanese baskeball is Fadi Khatib . He was leader of National team and he was guiding Lebanese national team in three World basketball championships. He is an icon of basketball here and interesting fact is that he is almost 40 and he is still able to produce triple double scores or 40+ pts games. There are definitely players over here who deserve attention and who are capable to compete at some decent level. I would say the main thing here in order to bring bright future for National team is to establish sistem for youth generations, something we were doing in Serbia for many years.

Could you tell us what are advantages and disadvantages of being professional coach?
I am positive person and I am very thankful for being able to do what I love. Thats the biggest advantage for me, being basketball coach . Having oportiunity to implement your vision and see the progress of 12 players doing it is as well very joyfull feeling . Being able to travel and live with different people, dealing with different cultural and personal elements is worthfull of every sacrifice .The biggest disadvanatge is constantly being away from my family.
Who are the best coaches and the best players you wored with ?
Well, Dragisa Saric, who I mentioned previously was very important for my career and I learned from him a lot. Working with Alen Abaz in Al Moutahed team was really such a big pleasure. I consider him as a great friend and very good basketball coach.
Player side, I worked, way back to time in Serbia with Stevan Jelovac, who is extremely talented player. Here in Lebanon Ramel Curry was very impressive, Hassan Whiteside etc .

For the end, what are your plans for future? Lebanon, Europe, something else ?
Well, in our world its not easy to set a long term plans as our job is not always stable. My goals are definitely to get back to Europe and build strong system in one healthy and stable organization. Thats the next goal . At the same time, I have a few offers from Lebanon which I will consider as well.
Thanks again for the oportiunity to share my experience with you and wish you all the best!
