LThe season is being moved in the Unibox. Until now, the people of Malaga have not fulfilled any of the objectives that were proposed at the beginning of the course. The Costa del Sol team did not go to the Copa del Reyhas been left out of the Basketball Champions League Final Four and will not attend the final phase of the Endesa League. He is not to blame for everything Ibon Navarro, who arrived in the middle of the course, but his future after the end of the season is uncertain. The coach from Vitoria himself has admitted it in the preview of the clash that will measure the typesetter against Baskonia in one of the classics of the modern ACB.

I don’t know who will be here, who will go or stay, nor who will not be… I have no idea. The only thing that matters to me is this season, but I am sure that by doing things well they will be in their place again. That doesn’t guarantee it because the level of the Endesa League is extremely high, but it does give you the chance to compete. The League is not over, there are four games left”, explained the coach of the Los Guindos club.

A complicated atmosphere in Carpena

Part of the Malaga fans has launched notices of their fed up. In social networks there have been any call to protest this Saturday against the team, although not everyone agrees. Some believe that it is necessary to complain about the team’s performance and others believe that with the objective of being tenth in the table still feasible, it is the requirement to play the BCL next year, they must continue supporting the team despite the disappointing campaign.

Ibon Navarro also talked about it. You have to finish the course. Especially not being pessimistic or negative. The competition is not over: there are four games left, two at home against rivals who are fighting for the playoffs (Manresa and Baskonia); and some good opportunities to show that we can be there. Focus on that and not on what has been done. Don’t think this is a disaster. We would like people to support us, despite the fact that sometimes we have not been up to the task. If they come, we will surely notice it “, he affirmed before the media on the subject in question.

Without López Nieto in the box

It will be the first match that the former international referee misses. Unicaja has confirmed the positive for COVID-19 of Antonio Jesus Lopez Nieto, president of the entity. He will therefore not be at that appointment against Baskonia. The box of authorities will be chaired by Rafael Fernández, Director and former president of the Malaga club. He is not the only casualty of Unicaja. More important are the absences of Jonathan Barreiro, due to a strong blow to the chest, and Francis Alonso, injured in the soleus.
