The Bosnian stepped on the tracks again, against Barcelona in Euroleague, three months after receiving hospital discharge. ANDOn July 14, Kuzmic suffered a very serious traffic accident after which doctors were forced to keep him in a coma induced by the tremendous pain he suffered. He suffered significant injuries to the thorax and head, also having to be operated on the upper jaw. The former Real Madrid player collided head-on against another vehicle on a Bosnian highway.
But after touching the tragedy, the player would become an example of overcoming. Days after leaving the coma would walk again and three months later even to play. «No one expected me to return so soon, after three and a half months. It's something great for the team, for me and for everyone. I'm happy after everything I've been through. Basketball will make me feel much better, ”said the 29-year-old center.
Still in the process of recovering its best form, something that recognizes that "it will take time," the Bosnian, with the Red Star, visits Real Madrid today, a team in which he played the last two seasons. In the white team they keep great memories of him: «I am very happy that he has returned to the courts, which is what he likes to do. He is a kid we all have a very good impression of, but he had very bad luck with us. I wish him the best of luck … starting tomorrow, ”Pablo Laso acknowledged. The misfortune has been primed lately with the Bosnian, who broke his knee in his first year under the orders of Laso: "The day they told me about the car, I thought: 'This guy happens to everything,'" he added Laureate coach.
Now Ognjen Kuzmic, again in Belgrade, is fully focused on regaining his maximum performance, something he is trying from these first three games in which he has already scored 12 points.
