Unicaja what will probably be his longest summer in history has started this Monday. The painting of Los Guindos has remained for first time since 2013 outside the playoffs for the Endesa League title. A hard blow that was consumed with the defeat against Real Madrid but that had been chewing in the club’s offices for a long time. Without a president and with the technical secretary, Manolo Rubia, very close to leaving office, a time of true changes opens at the club on the Costa del Sol.
However, the new project will bring changes but these will not reach the bench. Fotis Katsikaris is very close to renewing for the Malaga team. The Hellenic coach has not achieved the goal, but despite this, the harmony with the club managers is good. It is expected that throughout this week its continuity on the ship will be made official. It must be remembered that Katisikaris arrived with the season already late, so the fiasco that has been the final result is not only your responsibility. The agreement with the Greek coach is well advanced and it is very likely that before Friday it will be a reality.
Katsikaris’s own statements after the game against Real Madrid hinted that continuity was close. “I really want and hope to continue with the team. That is why I accepted the conditions of coming in a complicated situation. I knew it was going to be complicated. I tried to change a few things to see the strengths or weaknesses of the team.. In such a difficult and complicated season, and in the end bad for the team, it was disappointing. It gives me a lot of strength to work and put this team where it deserves, “explained the typewriter coach. Katsikaris is one step away from commanding the 21-22 campaign of a Unicaja that must restructure from top to bottom and where no one is ruled out traumatic exit.
