With Montenegro, he wrote the most beautiful Olympic story of our country in London, 12 years later he has a new dream - to turn the old page of history with Slovenia.

Legendary Montenegrin coach Dragan Adzic he will try to do what no one before him has managed in that Alpine country, which is to take Slovenian handball players to the Olympic Games for the first time.

Fate or something else, but on the way to Paris, they will have to go through Montenegro, against girls they know very well, since Slovenia will be one of the rivals of the "lionesses" in the qualification for the Olympic Games.

"I believe that my handball players will be ready for top selections such as Montenegro and Germany," said Adžić, as reported by RTV Slovenia.

The qualifications for Paris begin on April 11, and in addition to Montenegro, Slovenia and Germany, Paraguay will appear in the tournament and in Ulm as a total outsider - the two best national teams will qualify for the Olympic Games.

"Despite the fact that I think these are top teams, I think it is possible to beat Montenegro and Germany," added Adžić.

The fact that Slovenia is a much more serious team today with him shows that at the last European Championship in 2022, it took eighth place (the best ranking in history), while a few months ago it was 11th at the World Cup.

"The World Championship showed that the motivation and competitiveness of the girls is growing. We did enough to qualify, but now we are a serious team that can proudly represent Slovenian colors in the battles for the Olympic Games," concluded Adžić.

Before the pre-Olympic tournament, Slovenia, just like Montenegro, faces the EHF Euro qualifiers against Latvia and Italy. As Adžić's selection will go to the European Championship even as one of the best third-placed selections, our expert has decided on two lists - on one is the younger players traveling to the Baltic, and on the other those who should fight for Paris.
