A satisfied coach
Kestutis Navickas, coach at Centre of Excellence, is also happy about the performance Ludik showed at Egypt International last week.

- We are happy that Milan showed the result that can help him in Olympic qualification. He beat some good players that he lost before so that’s very positive, Navickas said.

- We have been working on some new things in Milan’s game and that took time to implement small details into his game. Step by step all the things slowly coming together, and we hope that will help Milan in the near future, he added.
