— I heard that Pichler got a job in the Bulgarian national team. He is an important specialist for me. Recently I looked through his letters with training plans by mail and thought: “I haven’t written to him for a long time, I need to write. And then this news comes: he got the job. It’s cool! We keep in touch with him – we congratulate each other on birthdays and holidays. I will definitely write to him and congratulate him,” Zaitseva told .

Pichler led the Swedish national team from 1995 to 2011, worked with the Russian national team from 2011 to 2014, after which he returned to the Swedish team.
