Prajo Radomir (Lokomotiva Coach): “I am proud of what my team achieved this year, compared to what we did in previous years. Our gratitude goes to the people who work hard to make this tournament so brilliant.”
Marco Vuckovic (Partizan Assistant Coach): “This year’s tournament was the best we’ve ever experienced. We want to come again next year. What happened yesterday in the semi-final against Croatia Zagreb was totally crazy, that’s why I didn’t want to speak to anyone. That game was similar to a final, but luck was not on our side. Today’s match was very entertaining and in the end we are satisfied with the result.”
