CSKA President Andrey Vatutin believes that VTB United League did the right thing, ahead of finishing the season-2019/20 due to the coronavirus.
“It was absolutely correct and very quick decision.
I do not want to be in a situation in Israel, where Maccabi, who wants to continue the Euroleague season, said that if the Euroleague will continue, they will not take part in thegrove of the championship of Israel.
It’s not a nice situation, we would not want to be in this position. We need to understand what the League decides in the interests not only Russian teams, but also teams from the Baltic States and Poland.
So I always believed that it is better a horrible end than horror without end, it is better to decide something and to give the actors something to navigate. VTB League, from my point of view, did everything right,” said Vatutin in an interview to “Russia 24”.
