Romania's Silvasan Weighs Up Options

05.08.2004

Romania international Mihai Silvasan is pondering his future after attracting interest from America and elsewhere in Europe.

The University of Baltimore have been keeping an eye on his progress since last summer, while German club Crailshein have also now joined the hunt.

"The Germans said that they will do almost everything to transfer me, and their coach, who is Romanian, Marian Thede, came to Cluj for negotiations," said Silvasan.

The 19-year-old made his international debut in a recent tournament in Algeria and impressed new coach Mladen Jojic.

"I played all the matches and scored two points in my first match and 28 in the other two," Silvasan said.

"At the end, new coach Mladen Jojic was satisfied by my performances."

The admiration between Jojic and the Policarbochim player would appear to be mutual.

"He is a special trainer, who comes with a new vision and brings a healthy mentality to Romanian basketball," Silvasan added.

"For him it's important to have an aggressive defence and you can see he has style."
