President of the basketball club CSKA , Andrey Vatutin has summed up the results of the off-season.
“We have completed the transfer campaign. I would like to finish her news about the breakup I’m talking about Vorontsevich and Sant Rosa.
Life is so complicated, it was forced business decisions related to budget cuts, the General economic situation at the club, the country and around the world.
I understand the disappointment of the fans, because it is customary to finish selection campaign with the signing, and we have this year turned out differently.
We said goodbye to two important players in that situation with the budget probably would remain in the team.
In quantitative terms, we have lost, as the players who left, I hope that won.
No departures and transitions in the near future — before the start of the season CSKA will not. Now on August 10, we plan to gather in Moscow and to start the preseason.
The most important wish from me before the season to injury, at least serious injuries avoided us. Matches a lot of players became less.
What CSKA for many years been, great bench, great potential for a wide rotation in the new season this will be.
Therefore, the health of all our core players and I very much hope for progress and confidence of young people whom we want so much more than before, to use in the new season.
This requires a very good team. I hope that the atmosphere of unity and camaraderie, which CSKA has distinguished himself in recent years will continue,” — said Vatutin in an interview to the press service of the army.
The regular season of VTB United League will begin on 20 September and the start of the season in the Euroleague is scheduled for 1 October.
