3 candidates for the bench of Valencia

The head coach position of Valencia won't be vacant for long..

After the surprising leaving of Neven Spahija, PE Valencia immediately started the search for the new Head Coach. At this moment the main candidates are Velimir Perasovic, HC of the Croatian powerhouse Cibona Zagreb and former coach of TAU Ceramica, Sharon Drucker, currently with Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv, former ULEB Cup and EuroCup winner with Hapoel Jerusalem and Ural Great Perm, and Sergio Scariolo, HC of Khimky Moscow and ex Unicaja's coach.

According to rumors Perasovic and Drucker are currently in better situation, as Scariolo is under the contract with the Moscow team and he is also the HC of Spanish NT. PE Management is going to interview Perasovic in Zagreb this week-end, while Drucker is expected to visit Valencia during the week. Decision about the new coach who will lead PE Valencia next season in Euroleague and ACB will be known soon.

As a reminder, PE Valencia won the EuroCup this season beating ALBA Berlin in the Final. In ACB, Unicaja eliminated them in the Quarterfinals.
