The umpteenth failure on the track derived more than ever the gaze towards the box, because it was never spent as much as this time. The faces of Josep Maria Bartomeu, Nacho Rodriguez, Albert Soler ... The Barcelona faced once again to defeat in the Liga Endesa.
The consequences have been maximum. The first: Pesic , struck down. The coach was the obvious scapegoat, although in the official statement there was talk of a premeditated decision, despite the fact that he had one year left on his contract.
The multimillionaire bet of a frantic summer in which five very expensive signings were announced, starting with the return of the NBA by Niko Mirotic , had been left in the hands of Pesic, on the way to 71 years old, retired from retirement in February 2018.
The second piece of dominoes marks a before and after in the section: Sarunas Jasikevicius , announced on Wednesday morning as a new coach until the end of the 2022-2023 course. Lithuanian, 44, was also interested to Fenerbahce as a replacement for Zeljko Obradovic, but finally the Catalan club has managed his return to the club with which he won the Euroleague 2003 as a player .. On the bench of the Zalgiris has returned Spectacular, winning five leagues and reaching a Final Four, that of 2018.
The third and final consequence will be in the squad, although the names that will pay for the defeat against Baskonia are still unknown . The movements are mortgaged to very expensive contracts and to a market situation in which the cuts will be the common denominator. The acquisition of veteran Nick Calathes will be followed by the exits of Kevin Pangos and Pau Ribas (in addition to valuing that of others who have barely counted). And in the spotlight is Captain Ante Tomic . It was far from being the worst of the Barça centers, but they are already 33 years old and everything indicates the end of a stage.
The other great blow of effect would be the arrival of Pau Gasol . Waiting to know how his foot evolves and when he is 40 years old, the pivot increasingly slides the possibility of extending his career at Barça, with the aim of reaching the Tokyo Games. A media twist for a board that would once again cover the club's darkest era, a drought as troubling as it is millionaire.
