Panathinaikos and Xavi Pascual will not continue their collaboration after nearly two seasons together, following the Greens’ losing streak in EuroLeague so far in the season.

George Vovoras and Fragkiskos Alvertis will take charge of the bench until further notice.

Pascual led the Greens to two consecutive Greek League titles, in 2017 and 2018, while he was also named Greek League Best coach for both seasons.

The Spanish coach didn’t meet with the press today in the scheduled press conference for the upcoming EuroLeague game against AX Armani Exchange Milano.

On the contrary, owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos visited the team at OAKA and also fans of the Greens were waiting outside the gym in order to also meet with the team. Giannakopoulos announced his decision to impose a fine on the team for the way they performed against Real Madrid.

Changes are expected in the roster, however, nothing is expected to change before the game against Milan.
