Pini Gershon: In the business sector Nikola Vujcic would have been fired long ago - Feb 24, 2017


POSTED BY:

Vladislava's Articles

Pini Gershon is former head coach of Bulgarian National team and current professional manager of Israeli Basketball Association. Three times European champion with Maccabi Tel Aviv, eight times Israeli champion, eight times Israeli Cup winner.

Gershon was interviewed by Israeli sports program on 102FM and provided quite a few gems. The veteran coach mark the one primarily responsible for the failure of the Maccabi Tel Aviv, addressed the drug test of Sony Weems and Hapoel Jerusalem was also on his target.

- How would you describe the season of Maccabi and the scandals in the club?
- If you're talking about drug tests, and if I know correctly, they were not the most accurate in the world. As far as I know and understand. WADA makes tests for illegal drugs in sport. WADA is not focused on marijuana, cannabis and joints. I do not know if this was the correct test (the test of Sonny Weems), but it was used so the club could get rid of him.

- Has Maccabi initiated these kind of tests during your time on the team?
- I do not remember such kind of case, because it wasn't necessary. I suppose, if they did, then the information was announced officially.

- How would you describe this year?

- The largest investment was made so Maccabi could not only be successful in the Israeli league, but mostly to be successful in the Euroleague. And in the Euroleague Maccabi is simply miserable. They invested almost $30 millions and will maybe bring another player. Maccabi didn't record any big victory this season in Europe, except the one against Olympiakos. The season in Europe is a failure. A big failure. And they know it.

- Is Nikola Vujcic part of the Maccabi's failure?

- Obviously. Everybody sees it, except Malala who put their money on the team. Nicola is protected by someone else and is the one, who is responsible for everything. You cannot change the owner, but you can change the manager. Maccabi is a business project. If the business project is unsuccessful, you have to pay. If this was a different kind of business, not basketball, for this kind of failure and economic losses, he would have been gone a long time ago.

- Who is responsible for the great failure?
Nikola Vujcic is not capable to understand that Maccabi Tel Aviv live on its nuclear program. You can add three players every year, but you cannot afford any revolutions. The last two seasons costed Maccabi 65 million dollars. And we are not talking about a million, we are talking about 65 million dollars. Let me ask you something: If you are an owner and your business was forced by your CEO to the bottom? And what if your business crashes like this? Of course, that would mean that the manager should be fired and sent home a long time ago.

- Do you want to come back to Maccabi?
- No.

- Did they offer you to come back?
- No. They don't like me and they don't want me.

- Are you happy seeing Maccabi in such a rough time?
- No. I'm a professional. I'm a broadcaster. I say what I see. I would never gloat.

- Who's a bigger loser? Maccabi, or Hapoel Jerusalem?
- Jerusalem are lucky that all the media are focused on Maccabi's disappointing season. In the Eurocup Jerusalem lost to worse teams, than Maccabi did in the Euroleague.

- But why is Maccabi so easily defeated this season in the Euroleague?
American players, who are paid towards the Euroleague standarts, play different when they face CSKA Moscow and when they face Hapoel Holon. They think that everything will go so easy in the right places. But you have to understand that once you start losing by 20 points, it's not always possible to come back. You can not do both vehicles.

Nikolai Vangelov joins Cuore Napoli - 7 days ago
Generazione Vincente Cuore Napoli (Serie A2) agreed terms with 21-year old Bulgarian international center Nikolai Vangelov (212-96). He was about to sign at New Basket Brindisi in the Serie A.
