Interview with Mile Sterjovski – Part Two

4 years ago, Posted on

In the lead up to the A-League Finals series it is time to publish the second part of our interview with Mile Sterjovski. Mile lines up tonight in Match Day 5 of the ACL v FC Seoul and on Saturday in the A-League Elimination final v Adelaide United at Central Coast Stadium and the entire Redbacks FC family wishes he and the Central Coast Mariners the best of luck ! It will be a fitting way to send off one of Australia's great football stars into retirement if Central Coast take out the A-League Grand Final this year on May 4th and the Asian Champions League !! But regardless of results, Mile has been an inspiration to many throughout his career and with MSFC he will continue to inspire Australia's next generation of football stars for many years to come.   Part 2..... James 'Jimmy' Solomons goes one-on-one with Mile Sterjovski Jimmy: What is the most memorable moment in your career? Junior & Professional ? Mile: The thing that sticks out in my mind the most is lining up in the tunnel alongside Brasil in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Looking over to my left and seeing players like Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, Adriano and Kaka was surreal. Jimmy: What was the biggest hurdle you had to overcome to become the player you are today? Mile: In my 3rd year playing in France my club Lille OSC appointed a new coach called Claud Puel. We had a relationship that I would describe was like a rollercoaster. There were times when I would be playing and times when he would leave me out for weeks. At times he was very hard on me but i think that without this experience I wouldn't be the player I am today and I would have been able to handle some of the other coaches I had in my career. It gave me a thicker skin! Jimmy: Have there been any bad parts of being a professional footballer ? Mile: Being a professional Footballer is great but there are many things that aren't so great as well. In my career I had to make many sacrifices. When I was a teenager all my friends would be going out to parties, night clubs and having a drink while I would stay at home and focus on my football. Other sacrifices I had to make were to leave my family and friends in Australia while I pursued a career in Europe. I also couldn't attend my brother's wedding! These are just a few examples but I must say that the good outweigh the bad! Jimmy: Yeah, I guess that the opportunity to play professionally doesn't come without hard work and sacrifice ! Jimmy: What is the most memorable football stadium you have played at ? Against who ? Mile: I have been lucky enough to play at some great stadiums in the world but I would have to say the most memorable stadium for me was the San Siro in Milan. I was playing for FC Basel against Inter Milan in the Champions League qualifier. We lost the game 4-1 but i did score our goal! Jimmy: Do you have any pre-match routines? Mile: I don't have a routine that I must do every week but whenever I have the chance I like to get some reflexology the morning of the game. Jimmy: What football teams do you follow outside of the A-League ? Mile: Man Utd, AC Milan, Barcelona Lille OSC, FC Basel & Derby County Jimmy: Did you call the game in Australia Soccer or Football when you were growing up ? Mile: Soccer! I only started calling it Football once i moved to Europe! Jimmy: Will you continue to play after you retire from professional football ? Mile: This is something I am not sure of.. Jimmy: Do you follow any other sports ? Mile: I like watching tennis, NRL and NBL. Jimmy: What sort of music do you listen to? To relax ? Pre-Game ? Mile: I like all types of music but i would say that currently i'm into RnB! Jimmy: If you weren't a footballer, what would you be? Mile: Something to do with coffee.. Either own a cafe or become a coffee critic! Jimmy: What do you like to do in your free time away from football? Mile: Go to the beach with the family.. Jimmy: What is your favourite food ? Favourite drink ? Mile: Probably Thai food and favourite drink would be a well made flat white Jimmy: What is your favourite TV show ? Mile: Game of Thrones Jimmy: What is your favourite car ? Mile: Audi R8 or Maserati Jimmy: Do you have any pre game superstitions that you are willing to share ? Mile: I like to put right sock on first then left followed by right boot etc ! Jimmy: How many times can you juggle the ball Mile: I never was really good at juggling a soccer ball. The last time I counted was when I was 12 years old and I think I got about 250. (Other kids at the time were getting up to 1000) Jimmy: Ha, don't be so hard on yourself...that is approx 220 more than me ! Mile: Not enough practice Jim 🙂 Jimmy: How many goals have you scored Mile: My son Luka tells me I'm up to 99 goals in my career. Would love to get 100 before retire! (editors note...this was at time of interview in February...Mile has banged in a few more now so has reached that magic 100 according to Luka 🙂 ....and hopefully there are a few more to come in the coming weeks !) Jimmy: Finally mate, why do you wear #21 ? Is it a lucky number? Mile: I wear 21 because it's the number I wore at the 2006 WC. It represents what I went through to achieve my ultimate goal of playing at a WC. Seeing the number 21 always takes me back to that time. Jimmy: Mile, thank you for time....its been an honour to go one-on-one with you! Best of luck for the rest of the season ! Mile: No problem Jim 🙂
