A couple months after a historic success, that saw AS Monaco battle in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs and come on the verge of the EuroLeague Final Four, the club and its head coach Sasa Obradovic penned a deal that will keep him on team's bench for another three seasons, the club announced on Monday.
Obradovic, 53, took over Monaco in December of 2021, with the team in its EuroLeague debut holding a 5-9 record, but managed to turn things around. Monaco won seven of its next 10 games, and seven of its last eight regular season fixtures to finish seventh in the standings and reach the playoffs. There, Monaco took Olympiacos Piraeus to maximum five games before bowing out in a best-of-five series decider, one of the best games of the season. In the French League, Monaco reached playoff finals where it lost in maximum five games against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne.
