During the games, he is always very serious, fully dedicated to his job, to his team and to his players. But, now it is time to meet the other, much more cheerful side of Crvena zvezda mts head coach Dejan Radonjić.

Radonjić was enjoying his time while reading numerous questions which arrived for him via ABA League Fan Mail, while most of his answers have a little dose of jokes inside.

Anyway, read the full article.

What is the feeling to be the coach with the most wins in the history of Crvena zvezda, and the coach with the most wins in the history of ABA League?

It makes me very proud and extremely motivated.

Is there any player in Europe who has better shooting skills than Marko Simonović?

There is, but Simonović is also an outstanding shooter.

Do you think that creating the 2nd division of ABA League would be a good idea?

Yes, that would be an excellent thing and I expect it will happen.

Can Branko Lazić in his free time join the football section of Crvena zvezda to help them in defense?

You should ask Miodrag Božović about that (head coach of FC Crvena zvezda).

Do you plan to return to Budućnost VOLI one day?

Never say never...

When will the new center arrive to Crvena zvezda?

He will arrive...

When can we expect a debut of Petar Rakićević?

Soon...

Who is the best player you have ever coached?

Nikola Vučević.

Which player from the Serbia national team you would like to sign for Crvena zvezda?

Many of them.

Who is currently the best player in ABA League?

Crvena zvezda!

Which game you remember the most in your coaching career?

The Game 3 of the 2014/15 ABA League semifinals against Partizan.

Which ABA League player would you like to see in Crvena zvezda jersey?

There are a lot of talented players in ABA League...

You were a professional player, now you are a professional coach. What's better?

There are big differences. Now it's better, back then was easier.

You said last year that Crvena zvezda would win the title and it happened. You said that in this season that Crvena zvezda would beat Partizan and it also happened. That is why I am asking you when will Crvena zvezda win the Euroleague?

I still haven't got the vision...

Who is a better player Nikola Rebić or Marko Tejić?

They can't be compared, as they do not play at the same position.

Who is your favorite American player with whom you worked?

Everyone were good...

If you were to move to some other club, which player you would take with you?

Nebojša Ilić (Crvena zvezda Team Manager). No one has ever scored 71 points except from him.

When are you planning to tell us on which place we will finish the 2016/17 Euroleague season?

I will tell you when I find out.

How was your time at the seaside?

It is always nice at the seaside?

Do you see yourself in Crvena zvezda in 15 years from now?

Why not?

Why Nikola Milutinov and Rade Zagorac did not sign with Crvena zvezda last summer?

Their situations were different...

If you were to play at the point guard position alongside Stefan Jović, with what margin would Crvena zvezda beat all of their rivals?

It depends who would be the head coach. If Radonjić would be the head coach then...

Do you follow #Radonjizam on Social Networks?

Yes, at the airports...

What are your ways of relaxing from the stressful job at Crvena zvezda?

Family, trainings, long walks...

His contract has not expired yet.

Marcus Williams or DeMarcus Nelson?

They were both outstanding while playing for Crvena zvezda.

Dejan Radonjić - Ko je najbolji igrač u ABA ligi? Crvena zvezda!

Na terenu uvek ozbiljan, posvećen poslu, svom timu i igračima. Ali, sada je vreme da upoznate i onu drugu, mnogo opušteniju stranu Dejana Radonjića, trenera Crvene zvezde mts.

Radonjić je uživao čitajući mnogobrojna pitanja koja su stigla za njega preko fan mejla ABA lige, a na većinu njih odgovarao je u šaljivom tonu. Uostalom, pročitajte...

Kakav je osećaj biti trener sa najvise pobeda u istoriji Crvene zvezde i trener sa najviše pobeda u istoriji ABA lige?

Ponosan sam i izuzetno motivisan.

Da li u Evropi neko ima bolji šut od Simonovića?

Ima, ali i Simonović je izvanredan.

Da li ste za stvaranje druge lige u ABA?

Da, to bi bio odličan potez i očekujem da će se desiti.

Može li Branko Lazić u slobodno vreme da dođe u fudbalski klub da pomogne malo u odbrani?

Pitajte Grofa.

Da li planirate da se ikada vratite u Budućnost?

Nikad ne reci nikad.

Stići će...

Treću utakmicu polufinala ABA lige protiv Partizana u sezoni 2014/15.

Kojeg igrača iz ABA lige biste voleli da vidite u dresu Zvezde?

U ABA ligi igra veliki broj talentovanih igrača...

Da li vam je bilo lepše tokom igračke ili tokom trenerske karijere?

Ogromne su razlike. Sada mi je lepše, a tad je bilo lakše.

Rekli ste da će biti Kalemegdan u junu i bio je. Rekli ste da će Zvezda pobediti Partizan i pobedila je. Zato vas pitam, da li će Zvezda osvojiti Evroligu?

Još mi se nije javilo...

Ko je bolji igrač, Rebić ili Tejić?

Ne mogu da se porede, ne igraju na istoj poziciji.

Ko vam je omiljeni Amerikanac kojeg ste trenirali?

Svi su bili dobri.

Da idete u neki drugi klub kojeg igrača Zvezde biste poveli sa sobom?

Nebojšu Ilića, još niko osim njega nije dao 71 poen.

Kada planirate da nam kažete na kom mestu ćemo završiti u Evroligi?

Kad ja budem znao.

Kako je bilo na moru?

Na moru uvek odlično.

Da li vidite sebe u Zvezdi za 15 godina?

Što da ne?

Zašto Milutinov i Zagorac nisu došli u Zvezdu?

Različite su bile situacije...

Sa kolikom razlikom bi Zvezda pobedjivala protivnike da vi igrate u paru sa Jovićem na poziciji plejmejkera?

Zavisi ko bi bio trener. Ako bi bio Radonjić...

Da li pratite #Radonjizam na društvenim mrežama?

Da, na aerodromima...

Kako se opuštate od stresnog posla u Zvezdi?

Porodica, trening, šetnja.

Da li ste pitali Teodosića da li će da dodje u Zvezdu sledeće sezone?

Nije mu još istekao ugovor.

Marcus Vilijams ili Demarcus Nelson?

I jedan i drugi su bili izvanredni.

Kako?

Eto tako.
