When Coach Peja thinks about his favorite soccer memory growing up, he always thinks of his brother, Nenad. He will carry in his heart the fact that his brother rarely missed watching any of his games. He provided unconditional support throughout his career, from when he started until now.
Peja has coached with ASA for the past decade, working with primarily girls players U9-U19. He enjoys watching his players develop and grow, while also learning life lessons.
Peja has always admired Dejan Stankovic as a player. He left a huge mark playing in Europe, he was known for being a fighter on the field with great awareness, and a player that would never give up. At an early age, he was passed over at tryouts for one of the small local teams. That just gave him the motivation to succeed, even when it seemed complicated. Later he left his print in Italy, where he played for Inter Milan. When he's not coaching Peja loves playing the guitar, enjoying a drink of coffee with quality, positive people around him, playing tennis and playing basketball.
