Sasha Vezenkov was furious with the refereeing of the match between Bulgaria and Portugal after the end of the match.
His team won, but failed to cover the ten point difference needed to qualify for the Eurobasket qualifiers, with the Olympiakos forward scathingly commenting on the refereeing of the match.
“Basketball is a sport of details, I’m happy with what we showed, but we didn’t do it. I don’t want to publicly comment on the referees, however if FIBA wants to see some things change so that athletes can come and play, they should see what happened today.
He needs to see the numbers. We feel defeated. I say again that I don’t want to comment on the refereeing, but FIBA needs to see what’s going on. I don’t think she will be happy with this product she is presenting».
The 27-year-old Olympiakos player had an excellent presence in the game, scoring 30 pointshowever, he did not seem pleased: “I don’t care how many points I scored, I came with a goal and failed. I’m not happy, I won’t be tomorrow either, but I gave my best. I have said I will come whenever I can. From tomorrow we must forget this fight. I don’t know in what condition I will be in August, I want to be healthy and then I will talk to Olympiakos. They understand».
Not many do it better than Sasha Vezenkov ?????
