Ataman: “We will take the necessary measures...”

Defeated by Banvit team 99-77 in the 12th-week match of Tahincioğlu Basketbol Super League game, Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:
Ataman: “We will take the necessary measures...”

“This is a heavy loss for us. The team had an image as imperceptive and unwilling on the arena. We will take the necessary measures. No player has a right to create an image like that on Anadolu Efes if they are wearing the jersey. We will take the necessary measures. We have had two very heavy losses, last week Istanbul Büyükşehir Belediye lost and today Banvit lost, they both are very heavy. We all were waiting for a very different Efes after our Euroleague performance on Friday. Though I am having a hard time understanding this. I am new also, meeting the players recently, though this imperceptive and unwillingness is a big surprise to me. We will take the necessary measures.”

Our player Vladimir Stimac also stated his thoughts on the press conference as: “I congratulate Banvit. There aren’t too many things to say. We played a bad game. We must improve ourselves and try to play better.”
