Greetings to everyone. Today, I have the pleasure of sitting next to the Serbian handball icon of “RK Vardar,” Ilija Abutović. He was part of the legendary roster when the club conquered Europe and won the Champions League.
Ilija played in “RK Vardar” for seven years and, besides the Champions League, won SEHA League four times, the Macedonian Super League five times, and the Cup six times. Before coming to Skopje, he played for “Spartak Subotica” and “RK Partizan” from Serbia, and “RD Slovan” from Slovenia. After leaving “RK Vardar,” Ilija’s career continued in Germany in “Rhein-Neckar Löwen.” Furthermore, he represented Serbia internationally at the EHF EURO 2016.
Ilija Abutović plays as a left-back and is one of the greatest defensive players in the sport. Yet, this is only one of his many qualities. His hard work and motivation are the main driving forces for all of his achievements.
In this interview, Ilija will tell us what a champion’s life looks like and reveal his recipe for success. So, let’s hear the facts from our guest straightaway.
