Quotes Greece vs. Slovenia

20 September 2009

Jonas Kazlauskas (Greece Coach):

"I am very proud of my players, they did great in the short time we had. I had only three players here with experience at this level, but they still did a great job winning a bronze medal. Today's game wasn't maybe very nice for the fans, but it was a match where the result was the most important thing."

Antonios Fotsis (Greece):

"It was a very hard game.  We usually struggle in this kind of game, because of the disappointment of being eliminated in the Semi-Finals. But this time the team was very focused in winning a bronze medal, and we got the result we wanted."

Jure Zdovc (Slovenia Coach):

"I want to congratulate Greece for their win. I also want to congratulate my players, because they found the energy after a very tough game last night. It was a great 14 days and we can be proud of our performance.  With Dragic and Smodis we would be on a different level, but we'll have to wait and see, who will be available for us next summer."

Uros Slokar (Slovenia):

"Despite our injuries we went into the game against Greece brave and tough. Unfortunately we did not make it to the third spot and did not win any medal, but we must not forget that we made a step forward in comparison to the previous championship. I would like to say thank you to all our fans who supported us here. We could not have made it this far without you."
