The CSKA inflicted on Fenerbahçe the sixth defeat in eight Euroleague matches (88-70), a result that complicates the future of Zeljko Obradovic in the Turkish champion, with more European setbacks than in the entire previous season. The 59-year-old coach had never experienced a similar situation in the top continental competition, which he has won in nine editions. His despair was translated during a timeout, with a terrible anger at his players.
"You are good boys, aren't you? According to you, you are very good. Well, give them to you, fuck you all!" The Serbian snapped during the aforementioned pause, in which he pointed to Melih Mahmutoglu and Gigi Datome.
"There is something I do not like: when some of our players seem to be not even interested in playing. And it is very hard to see it," added the coach during the press conference at the Universal Sports Hall.
Obradovic, with some more poise, tried to justify his volcanic reaction. "I tried to wake them up or do whatever. I'm sorry to say so, but that's what I feel. If you finish the game with two fouls in the last quarter, what do you think I should feel?" Added the former coach of Joventut or Real Madrid.
