Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul are living a difficult season under coach Sasa Djordjevic. The team failed to qualify for the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague playoffs and although the Serbian head coach signed a multi-year contract, his continuity with the club is far from certain.

Points this season

The president of Fenerbahce, Ali Koc, basically confirmed that a coaching change is coming for the Turkish powerhouse while talking to Beyaz TV.

"We have a smaller budget in the basketball branch. We can't get any smaller. The situation of Jan Vesely and Nando De Colo will be decided by the new coach if the budget fits, but both of their contracts are expiring," spoke the president.

As it was previously reported, Dimitris Itoudis is close to agreeing to a deal with Fenerbahce. Moreover, Xavi Pascual emerged as another candidate to lead the squad.

Fener's star duo of Nando De Colo and Jan Vesely were putting numbers again this EuroLeague season.

The French guard averaged 11.9 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 14.1 PIR over 21 EuroLeague games in 2021-22.

His Pick and Roll partner from the Czech Republic registered 13.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 18.2 PIR in 22 duels.
