LDLC ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne head coach talked to L’Equipe about being reportedly linked to FC Bayern Munich. He cited a recent conversation with management clarifying that he remains in his position at the French club patiently waiting for basketball action to resume.

“I have a contract with ASVEL. We recently had a conference call with Tony (Parker), (Nicolas) Batum, TJ (Parker), and all the staff,” he said replying to a question on Le Progres’ report regarding him taking over the German outlet, “We discussed recruiting, our many players still under contract. But that was all.”

In June 2018, Mitrovic signed a three-year contract committing up to the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

“Nobody talked about my contract,” he went on explaining his untouched status, “I joined a couple of years ago and I am still with the team. I don’t like these rumors. I am just waiting for the sign to return to Lyon.”

The suspension of the 2019-20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season had his side at 10-18, three wins behind in the playoffs race. In Jeep Elite Pro A, ASVEL was in a three-way tie on top of the standings thanks to a 21-4 W-L record.
