Micic: We want both cups
Two days before the Final-Four in the Euroleague, Anadolu Efes’ star Micic told Fanatik about his goals… “I really want to be the champion of the EuroLeague cup and the Turkish League. We’re very close to one of our goals and we’re in the Final Four. We were very sad when we lost to CSKA in 2019, but that was an experience for us. Now, having this experience, we will meet them again. ”
27-year-old Serbian guard Vasilije Micic, who has won everyone’s appreciation with his basketball since the day he was transferred to Anadolu Efes and is one of the strongest players of the team, made a statement before the Euroleague Final-Four to be played with CSKA Moscow on May 28.
Micic’s words came to the fore: “Actually, it was a long and fast season. The last season was a bit challenging under the coronavirus conditions and we had friends in our team who had the disease. With the advantage of being together, we have achieved success by increasing gears, especially in the last period.”
‘I am very happy at Anadolu Efes’
“First of all, I would very much like to remove the EuroLeague cup this season and become the champion in the Turkish league. I am sure that basketball players in all EuroLeague teams want to remove that trophy. We are very close to this goal right now and we are in the Final Four. I don’t have much thought about my future at the moment. My primary goal is the success of Anadolu Efes. I am very happy here. We will see what happens in the summer. “
‘Breaking match was Barcelona’
“We could not start the EuroLeague as desired. We lost successive times, but our motivation was for the Final Four. We all knew what we could do even if we got bad results. We were working hard believing that. Everyone did not meet the number of defeats of Anadolu Efes as normal, but we reached our goal with our efforts. We had many important wins during the season, but we easily defeated Barcelona, which came here as a favorite when our very good rhythm was not very good.
‘Conditions are different now’
“We were very sad when we lost to CSKA in the 2019 final, but it was an experience for us. Now we will meet them again with this experience. The names of the clubs are the same but the players are different. Both teams have new names. In different cities, under different conditions, different. A new match will be played with the players. We will now concentrate on this game without remembering the 2019 final and try to beat them and make it to the final. “
