Sasa Djordjevic became the first man who managed to accomplish something almost impossible! That's why he entered history!
The coach of Serbian national team managed to pull something off that rarely anyone can do in their career
Aleksandar Djordjevic played under a lucky star, even while he was a player. But his effort and work brought him to star heights in his career as a player, where he won almost all most important trophies.
He was a club champion of Europe, national team champion of Europe and the world and vice-champion of Olympic games.
However, he managed to repeat a part of his successes when he was a player as a coach.
Djordjevic became the first and the only man who as a player and as a coach participated in three finals of Eurobasket, World Championship, and Olympic games.
He reached this curiosity by entering the finals in Eurobasket in Istanbul.
As a player, Djordjevic participated in the finals of European championship (1991, 1995, 1997), in the finals of the World Championship (1998) and the finals of the Olympic games (1996).
He did it all again as a coach in four years.
He led the team to the finals of Mundobasketball in Spain 2014, and then to the finals of Olympic games 2016 and at the end in Eurobasket 2017.
- I didn't hear about that data, but it's nice if that is the case. Afterall, if you look realistically, Americans can't play in Eurobasket - said Djordjevic in his witty manner.
Zeljko Obradovic achieved something similar who led the team into three finals, of Olympic games (1996), European Championship (1997) and World Championship (1998). However, as a player, he misses the finals of the European championship, since he participated in the finals of the World championship 1990, and the finals of the Olympic games 1988.
