“It is a prerogative of the head coach to choose his assistants, and we supported Dusko Vujosevic who expressed the desire to work together with Dmitry Shakulin and Saso Filipovski. Filipovski is a young specialist who already showed himself on the European level and understands the nuances of the Russian championship. We’d like to express our appreciation to Ivan Jeremic for a season of productive work and we wish him all the successes in his future career.”

CSKA is a big institution, the winning machinery, and I will do my best to help it to stay on the highest level. I am also happy that Dusko Vujosevic expressed the desire to work with me. He is not only the successful and popular European coach but he is an expert in producing the players of high class with many of them playing in the best Euroleague and NBA clubs.”
