Evgeny Bogachev: “We are not going to put up a white flag”

The president of the club Evgeny Bogachev told his opinion about the reasons of playing travails of the team.

All the team went through the hospital

“This year as you may see is unlucky for us. We never had been in such a situation. Basketball is not considered to be high-injury sport as soccer or hockey. Injures chase our players, it is just a nightmare. Anton Ponkrashovis still on the injured list, Quino has been injured for the whole month, it`s his first injury as he says for the last 9 years. We signed Paul Stoll to help him. Vadim Panin is injured now. Evgeny Voronov is injured now- he had a strike on his knee. Artsiom Parakhouski missed 2 games.Kostas Kaimakoglou. Coty Clark still cannot get the previous playing condition, you remember when he just arrived, very ambitious with the plans and had to miss a month and a half..

    The big physical stress affects! We play 1,5-2 times more games than in the previous season, constant flights UNICS spends in the air more time than any other team, I read that not any other team in Europe flies so much as we do. There are no distances as we have. We play in Tel-Aviv and in two days in Krasnoyarsk. Different clock zones. Every time we cannot afford the charter flight as it costs several millions rubles.

We look for solutions

And now in this situation we look for solutions… Many people think that we should keep Orlando Johnson. We wanted to do so but his agents aske three time bigger his salary and this is unacceptable. 2nd of March  the registration time will finish and the team needs the rotation. That is why we signed Danilo Andjusic. 25 years old He is ambitious. In Spain he played together with Colom and Williams in one team. He can play 1,2 and 3.

I cannot keep silent on foreign players limit. On United VTB League regulations it must be registered 6 foreign players and 6 Russians for one game. On total can be only 7 foreign players. And where we supposed to get so many Russians?

Today we have only 3- Antipov, Voronov and Klimenko (the rest are injured). And to follow regulations we have to register the guys from  UNICS-2.
