At the head of the Red Team, Vladimir Ruzicic is now wearing a new cap. The coach of BC Boncourt is also a full-time dad: his son Maksim and his partner Kristina indeed left Serbia to join him in the Jura last month, after a six-month separation.
Due to the health crisis and travel restrictions, Vladimir Ruzicic lived the first months of the life of his son, born a year ago, from a distance. “I focused on the job. Of course I missed them but I didn’t think too much about it. If I had thought about it, it would have been very hard for me to manage the situation here, ”admits the BCB coach. “The most important thing now is to spend time together,” he says happily.
