COACH QUOTES

Quotes PBC CSKA vs. Fersped Rabotnicki Skopje
Rosen Barchovski - Head Coach of CSKA Sofia

"I am happy that we won that game, but I'm not satisfied by the way that we played tonight. We can beat Rabotnicki by 20 plus points, but we didn't play good defense in the last minutes of the game. Dimitar Angelov, Vladimir Zaric and Kris Garnett all had strong games. Our star player, Desmond Ferguson, didn t play well against Rabotnihki. The rest of the team also played below the level that they're capable of."

Iordancho Davitkov - Head Coach of Fersped Rabotnicki

"Good win for CSKA. The home team deserved the win, but I think that we'll win in Scopje. We missed two key players tonight and that was the main reason for our loss. My best player against CSKA was Vernard Hollins. I think our group is one of the strongest in the FIBA Europe League. There are three favourite teams: Kiev, Kazan and Fenerbahche, the other 4 teams will battle for one place."
