I am sure most of the Euroleague and/or Italian fans have noticed the news: Armani Jeans Milano has made a head coaching change 48 hours before the start of the Euroleague season.
Attilio Caja returns to the team he last coached in 2004 to try and turn things around after Zare Markovski was let go. Milano general manager Gino Natali also resigned his post on Tuesday.
I have seen the game on Italian TV this weekend where Euroleague contestant Montepaschi Siena killed Milano by almost 40 points and I was wondering what was wrong with the team. To me it looked more like it was the teams fault and not the coaches fault at all. But sometimes teams play like that to get rid of the coach as we have seen this in the past.
I don’t know if this was the problem in Milano but I am sure that letting the coach go wasn’t the right decision. I don’t want to get personal now but what do you think about this move? It would be easier if you get mean.. 😉
