VTB United League president Sergei Kushchenko commented on the Euroleague’s decision to end the season earlier than expected and maintain the position of three Russian clubs for next year.
“We remain in the same position of representation in Euroleague, in EuroCup. So the basketball intrigue that awaits us this season is postponed to next season. From now all clubs have an idea of where to play and how to form a team, and today will open the European market for players.
“Very correct Euroleague decision. And it should be noted that they tried to save the season until the end. I think the key was the greeting from all the participants in the league. For the VTB United League, this is a serious challenge, for the first time in history three teams are represented in two consecutive seasons, and it is clear that the Euroleague does not forgive mistakes – this is a competition of the highest quality “, Kushchenko says on TASS.
