Mitrovic retires Monaco during the friendly: the coach's habit
What happened last night at Alassio is something we would never want to see on parquets. After 20 minutes of play, AS Monaco decided to retire the team from the race that was disputed against the Junior Casale. The reason? A coach Zvezdan Mitrovic did not like referees.
Now, no one likes it. It is clear that there may be mistakes by the officials and it is equally normal to discuss them, but withdrawing the team is a sign of non-respect towards basketball and, perhaps, and above all, the audience who can not but whistle the decision.
Even in 2015, viewers were forced to leave at anytime. Why abandoning the current friendly is a gesture that coach Mitrovic and Monaco have repeated. It had happened on September 6, two years ago when against Basketball Cantu was the same coach to withdraw the team. For those who have forgotten, you can find the episode here.
