Oktay Mahmuti was under pressure from the beginning of the season and now the loss from Real seems to be the “final hit” for him. Eurohoops has learned that Efes is gonna terminate his contract, but the big surprise is the coach who’s gonna replace him. Vangelis Aggelou is the leading candidate, as he is the closest to Dusan Ivkovic.
The situation is the following. Efes wanted Duda as a coach from the previous summer, but due to his commitment to the national team of Serbia he had denied the possibility of working for them. Of course the Serbian coach has great relations with the management of the Turkish team, but he also had made clear that there is no chance he would take over the bench, in the middle of the season.
So Efes turned to his “right hand man” in Olympiacos and trusted person since their days in Panionios, Vangelis Aggelou. Sources say that his contract till the end of the season, is gonna be up to 300.000 euros and the Greek coach, will ask from Aris management, to let him make this big step in his career.
The most possible scenario is that he is gonna sit in Aris bench for the last time on Sunday against Panionios and then he is gonna leave for Istanbul. If this happens, don’t reject the possibility of Duda following him in the summer…
