Nando De Colo, the Euroleague 2016 champion, top scorer, season and Final Four MVP, signed a new contract with CSKA Moscow for three more years!
He won everything there was to win this year, both at an individual and at a team level. His magnificent performances attracted some… heavy attention from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. But despite the call from the… sirens of the NBA, the French combo guard chose to stay in the CSKA Moscow, by signing a new three-year contract.
“I am very happy to continue playing for CSKA”, De Colo said in the team’s official website after the renewal of his contract was announced. “It wasn’t a tough decision to take. I came back to Europe to play, to use the opportunities and carry more responsibility day-by-day. This is what I did, what I had here with the club. This year we had an amazing season. And this is what I want: to play, to do it for the best team in Europe and to be one of the leaders of this team. This is what is the most important for me, this is why I signed with CSKA”.
Coach Dimitris Itoudis also expressed his satisfaction with this development. “I can say only good things about Nando. He immediately adopted the role that the coaches asked him to perform. He is an important factor of the success we had all together. We are happy to have him for another three years. I wish him and his family to stay healthy to come back to Moscow with even bigger motivation. We already talked with Nando and we said once again about what was written at the back of our championship T-shirts: “hungry for more”; and we will continue to work hard to be ready and motivated next season.”, were the words of the Greek coach.
