« I am very happy that he came to Olympia, » his father and Slovenian national team legend, Tioman Alibegovic, said with a smile after Amar Alibegovic’s first European match in a Sedveta Olimpija jersey. They exchanged a few words after the match, and Ammar said already before the start of the season that his father was his biggest critic. What did he tell him? « It’s special, it’s special, » the 27-year-old replied with a laugh.
He stressed that the European match against Bursaspor, in which they lost by eight points, was the best lesson for basketball players for Cedevita Olympia, as they did not play against a good team this season. Amar AlibegovicWho scored 11 points and had three rebounds. « We still have a lot to learn. But we have a lot of talent, a great team. We make some mistakes because we need to get to know each other better. We miss that chemistry more. We miss that chemistry. I’ll sit and watch the video of the game, so we can be better. » In the next match. » Born in Oregon, USA, Amar showed the greatest desire of all, not least in the stands his biggest critic, his father. Teoman Alibegovic. « I’m really, really me. I think he still has a lot of reserves that he needs to use. I think he needs to become a better player, » the second-best scorer in the history of the Slovenian national team was frank after that. In the middle of the first round of the European Cup. He grew up in Jesenice, and then his football career took him all over the world, from the USA to Italy.
Amar, 27, who holds an American and Italian passport as well as a Bosnian passport, decided to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team, his ancestral home. But since he is a naturalized Bosnian representative, he did not have the opportunity to play in the last EuroBasket. Because they lack defenders, they have naturalized an American John Roberson. However, Tioman wanted to choose among his three sons Slovenia. But now, following his advice, he at least chose Cedevita Olimpija. Tioman never played for the Olympia team, but was on the verge of signing the contract several times. « I am very happy that he came to Olympia. I think Olympia is the right club for his development. But he has to take responsibility. If he wants to be one of the captains of the team, he will have to fight more. Just like everyone else. »

‘The team’s potential is good’
The next game in Stožice on Sunday will be, even more difficult, in the ABA League against Crvena zvezda. If they want to start beating good teams, they will have to play harder, says 55-year-old Tyoman Alibegovic. But they will have to learn the move, as they say in the language of basketball. “The potential of the team is good. I think the team is good. The ball should spin more. They were in a state of convulsion. It was the first match. The Turks had nothing to lose. They played all or nothing. They took all the shots, they had a high percentage.” « Very from a distance. We didn’t score as much. They were very consistent in the first half. When they accelerated in the second half, it was better to watch them. This is basketball: you have to play 40 minutes. » Thus, he believes that Sedevita Olimpija has a good season ahead of him: « Everything is fine. There are still many matches. It is still a long season. A long season. »
