This season has not started well for her Baskoniaby Joan Peñarroya to be very close to the exit door, amid rumors that Dusko Ivanovic wants to replace him in the technical leadership of the club.
With just one win in the first four matches of the Euroleague, the Basques are tested tomorrow at OAKA against Panathinaikos for the 5th “turn” of the event, with Peniarojas speaking at the team’s press conference, asking for more respect towards him as a coach!
At the same time, he also referred to racing problems who is called upon to manage in tomorrow’s game, after Rogavopoulos, Diop and Diath were ruled out, while Tsima Moneke is doubtful.
“My mood is the same as after the Unikaha game. The buzz is growing. I haven’t talked to anyone or heard anything so my situation is the same. The coach figure should be given a bit more respect, but it is what it is. What one cannot control is there. I am calm and aware of everything. I continue to work as I did on my first day here. We have had quite a few racing problems this week, with four absences. We should do different things, but not because of the rumors about my future. I know we could have done better in the previous games. We are the only team in the Euroleague with only 12 players and that will be a handicap for the opposition tomorrow.
Panathinaikos is a great team but it is still under construction, like most Liga Endesa League and Euroleague teams that have a new coach. It is still finding its place in the competition that is out there. They have a lot of potential as a team.” he said characteristically.
