According to allstarkourouna.blogspot.com Zeljko Obradovic's first meeting with the new president of the team Dimitris Giannakopoulos didn't produce any results. The article says that initially a 10 million euros players(and coaches) budget was presented to him but he didn't like that.
The amount went up to 12 or even 13 million euros but according to the report Obradovic wants 16 millions euros for coaches and players and 2 million euros must be the coaches(himself and his assistant Dimitris Itoudis).
Obviously this creates a predicament and there is no mention of the 25% shares option that was rumored previously. Obradovic and Itoudis are leaving for Dubai to take part in a coaching seminar and there is a new meeting setup for Monday so that the issue comes back on the table. The author estimates that if Obradovic doesn't back down in his demands it's high unlikely that Dimitris Giannakopoulos will back down and this could lead to a rift in the negotiations.
