Briefly describe how and why did you get involved in football?
Football is one of the most attractive sports in the world, and I saw many kids out there playing. So at the age of 7 I just told my mom to go with me to the stadium. And that was the beginning of my career.
"European Universities Football Championships in Porto 2017 was one of the most amazing student experiences I've ever had."
What do you study? How do you balance your study, trainings and competitions?
I study Sports Science and I play for the new football club of our University, CS UVT. Our teachers are very nice and they understand the situations when students have to train and compete.
Tell us about your experience of the European Universities Championships 2017. Is this your first time at an EUSA event?
It was my first time at an EUSA event, but European Universities Football Championships in Porto 2017 was one of the most amazing student experiences I've ever had, such a great event with a lot of people involved (volunteers, participants, teachers and other sports people). Actually, it was my second trip to Porto, after the U19 UEFA Qualifiers Tournament few years ago. So, I felt in love again with the city of Porto. For me and all of the UVT team, it was great to meet very good teams and socialize, it really was a quality time.
"University sport is very important and every student should try to take part. First, it is healthy, and second and third, you make a lot of new friends and the moments you spend doing sports will be unforgettable."
In 2018 the European Universities Games 2018 will take place in Coimbra, Portugal, do you hope to be there? Why do you think university sport events are important?
I really hope to be there! We are ready to win the National University Championships again and come to Coimbra and show that this year we are much stronger and confident. University sport is very important and every student should try to take part. First, it is healthy, and second and third, you make a lot of new friends and the moments you spend doing sports will be unforgettable.
This is your chance! What is your message to European students like yourself?
Please, move more often and be active! Find what you are good at and make the most of it!
EUSA would like to thank Miodrag and his team for competing at EUSA event in Porto and we hope to see them this summer in Coimbra, Portugal.
