Statements from our head coach Aleksandar Djordjevic

Fenerbahçe Beko Men’s Basketball Team Head Coach Aleksandar Djordjevic made a statement after the Bitci Baskonia match.

Evaluating the fight for Fenerbahçe Television, Aleksandar Djordjevic said, “I want to congratulate Baskonia, they really deserved to win. They took advantage of our mistakes and bad luck. With Nando De Colo’s injury, we had to change our match schedule. The match started very well, Jan also made a comeback and made a good contribution to us. Henry, our creator on the field, was back as well, but we started having difficulties as of the third quarter, especially with Peters’ two three-pointers… It gave Baskonia incredible confidence. They turned the ball very well and the ball pressure hurt us unbelievably. We became disorganized and lost our automaticity. We lost our ambition in such a one-on-one match. There is a saying that the Spaniards use; ‘playing with that ambition like the eyes of a tiger’, we didn’t play like that. There was also a three-pointer that Achille missed. In the end, they used 39 three-pointers and had 14 hits. We need to play very differently against such a team. It’s a very good team and Baldwin had an incredible rhythm throughout the whole game. All the strings were always in his hands.” said.
