Zeljko Obradovic traveled to Istanbul to say one last goodbye to his now-former club Fenerbahce Beko. The two sides officially parted ways on June 23, with Obradovic deciding to take a one-year break from coaching.
It was Obradovic‘s first visit to Istanbul following June’s trip for the conversations with the club’s management regarding whether he’ll continue with the team or not.
Fenerbahce equipment officer Erkan Karaca gave Obradovic a jersey with “2017” (the year Fenerbahce won the EuroLeague) as a parting gift.

Obradovic, the most celebrated coach in the history of European basketball, left Fenerbahce after a seven-year run during which led the team to 11 domestic titles, apart from 2017’s EuroLeague championship. He was succeeded by Igor Kokoskov who arrived in Istanbul Friday (7/8).
