Aco Petrovic is the new head coach of Zalgiris

Zalgiris found a new coach for next season in Aco Petrovic. A one year deal with an option to extend it for another season was signed with the Serbia specialist yesterday.

The coach has already visited Kaunas, saw the club’s facilities and spoke with the owner Vladimir Romanov and met with the management.

I’m happy that Zalgiris has showed trust in me as a coach. Everyone would want to work in a club with such a rich history. I’m currently analyzing the information about the club and I’ll be able to make some decision when I’m done. I know that a high-level of basketball is played here in Kaunas, I know that the club’s fans and people generally are interested in basketball, therefore I’m very happy to coach Zalgiris,“ said Petrovic.

My basketball ideology is super defense and decent offense. These are the keys to victory. I believe in the young players and value their enthusiasm and ambitions. Any foreigner has to be a better player than a local.”The Serbian has coach teams such as FMP Belgrade, Hemofarm Vrsac, Lokomotiv Rostov and Unics Kazan.
