” It’s a dream to be there with the team, everybody (the federation, the players, the coaching team) is waiting for me to return. But regarding to my present situation I have to say that it seems quiet unrealistic that I would be able to lead the team in Serbia.

I have to prioritize myself and my problems, this is the most important match in my life right now.”
