In his distinctive style, open and straightforward, Rade, in an interview for “Prva TV”, among other things, said that the profession is one of the biggest problems of Serbian football. He emphasized that there are no quality coaches working with children in Serbia.
“Coaches used to be educated at the Faculty of Physical Education, now they are licensed coaches. And there is a big difference between educated and licensed coaches.
In most cases here, there is no one to teach children,” says Bogdanović, today he wouldn’t be able to work as a coach. “I could never be a football coach, if someone came to my training in a Ferrari… Do you see how arrogant they have become?
How much misconduct there is. Yesterday, the trial of the right back Dani Alves, the most decorated player in team sports, began.
They have become arrogant. The media and football structure, huge amounts of money have gone to their heads.”
When asked by the host if he knows a footballer who hasn’t been affected by money, who has stayed firmly grounded, Bogdanović immediately responded: “The best example is Vladimir Jugović when it comes to Serbia. Of course, there are many of them, but they are not in the media because they are not interesting.
The media is more interested in some idiot who has squandered everything, who does drugs, beats his wife… I know a man who has won the Champions League, earned serious money, has a wife and children, and travels by tram.”
“In most cases, footballers are not a good example for the young,” Bogdanović adds. The spring part of the Serbian Super League starts this weekend, and Bogdanović is quite certain that the red and whites will soon take the leading position and continue to dominate in Serbian football.
“The spring part will not be particularly interesting to me, because Red Star has definitely strengthened with the removal of Bahar and the arrival of Milojević. They have a better team, even though they have now sold some players.
I think that Red Star will definitely win the title. They are well organized as a team, when things don’t go their way, they put pressure on the referees, VAR, and the public.
They are serious in that manipulative part, that’s for sure. It is serious pressure that the opponent cannot withstand.
Despite all this, they certainly have a better team,” Bogdanović believes. Kurir sport / J. M.
