Good image, the team is exploding with energy, the coaches are doing well in organizing the team. Of course there are some missing national team players, we do not have a complete picture yet, but I like what I saw. “We are young enough, our defensive athletes will be stronger this year,” Maksvytis said.

The incumbent “galgiris” who coached the Lithuanian national team in the European Championships had the opportunity to get to know Ignas Brazdeikis and Arns Butkevičius, the great coaches from the youth team and Klaipėda “Neptūnas” day.

“With Arn, we win every field, both on and off the field. He is a role model, a stable player. In the national team, it seems he did not play a major role, but this is not the case.
