Bosnic
Exclusive interview with Vedran Bosnic , the coach of the year in Sweden, and one of the most talented young coaches in Europe!

- How do you feel as the winner of the best coach reward in Sweden during your first season?

I would lie if I would say that it does not flatter me. However, what makes me really happy is the way my team played last season. I am happy with individual development of all my play-ers who accepted hard work and always gave maximum, and we eventually gained good re-sults. The reward is just an encouragement for us to work even harder and achieve even better results.

-You have a lot of international experience since you played in 9 different countries and at lmost all levels. How much did that help you in your coaching career?

It helped a lot; this experience is a great fortune, especially because I was lucky to have great coaches as Mladen Ostojic, Dule Vujosevic, Jonas Zazlauskas, Vlado Vanjak, If you take a little bit from each of them it can help you a lot, but most important is that you have your own ideas and that your follow your own philosophy.

- What is the difference between Swedish and European basketball?

There are many differences especially in the way of work and in mentality. Swedish basketball league has advanced a lot recently which can be seen from development of young players. There are more and more of them in big European clubs. The Swedish league is much stronger than it is actually perceived in Europe. Unfortunately, only one Swedish club played in Europe last year. It is Norrkoping. They were among 16 in FIBA Challenge. I am of the opin-ion that at least 2-3 of Swedish clubs should take part in European competitions and that would help a lot in basketball development in Sweden.

- What do you think should be done to add more quality to Swedish basketball?

Above all, quality work with young people which automatically means better coaches in youth selections. There is a plenty of talent in Sweden, we just need to keep quality work and invest in youth.
My club and a couple of other clubs have a good vision for youth, but it can not be said in general and for all clubs unfortunately.
I think that the system of competition should be extended from 6 months to 7-8 months, plus there should be a play off organized after the season, so that young players have more room for improvement.

- How do you see Swedish NT in future?

Sweden has a very good potential in young players and in new generations, but these players have to grow up professionally to reach high basketball standards. I see Sweden at the Euro-pean Championship very soon, because with the new system of competition it will be much easier to enter the Championship and compete with European teams of the highest quality. I would be surprised if that does not happen in the coming years.

- What do you expect your team to make during the next season?

It is too early to talk about it because most of the clubs including us have not finalized rosters yet. What I can say at the moment is that my wish is certainly to play quality basketball again, basketball which is very recognizable and solely based on a quality defense. Development of my players in professional and personal sense is my priority and my goal.

- What are your expectations and personal aspirations in terms of development of your career?

First of all I wish to learn more and I hope to get more opportunities to work with top profes-sionals on top levels. Every year basketball gets a larger dimension and that fascinates me. I am totally concentrated on my work with Sodertalje Kings and thats all I am interested in, and whether I will take over a bigger European team is something that time will show soon.

Thank you for the interview Vedran. Eurobasket wishes you a lot of success in your career.
