Nicola Stamenic and Ratko Rudic, at the time, players of Partizan Belgrade, walking together after their victory into the 1974 European Cup for National Champions.
They were both great players of the 70’s and actually the best Water Polo coaches in the World. Stamenic and Rudic have many common, but also different characteristics. They are both strong personalities and they have the “winner’s” attitude. They are hard workers, but at the same time they differ to the approach of the “art” of coaching. Considered as the “heritage” of their great mentor and spiritual father “Vlacho Orlic”, they have allot more to give to modern Water Polo.
