The 38-years old line-player parted ways with Israeli Maccabi Rishon by mutual agreement afterwards gave an interview for about the reasons for such a decision, but also an overview of the whole career which began in Belgrade.

  • I had a feeling like at home during period in Poland with Kielce. Poland was the country in which I felt the best. The worst was in (he played at Fullingen and Nordhorn 2005-2009). Mentality, character, that wasn’t something for me. However, I learned the most in Nordhorn. That was a part of career when I made myself as a man and athlete. I learned a lot of things from Germans and Scandinavians. My coach was Ola Lindgren, he showed me the way, helped me a lot, I overtook from him certain way of thinking and view on – said Rastko for and added:
  • I have learned a lot from the fight with Bjarte Myrhol, my team-mate in Nordhorn. I don’t talk about how good friend you are with someone, but about the fight to survive, battle for every minute at the court and h to play more than your pair on position. I had to learn everything in a month. I was coming from Balkan school, Bjarte is Scandinavian, Ola is also, it is natural to like his style more than mine. “No, I will not surrender, I don’t give you pole position”. I made myself stronger after that experience – concluded Rastko.
