Kevin Pangos appeared in the Crossover podcast with Joe Arlauckas and referred to his time with FC Barcelona.
Pangos left Zalgiris Kaunas in 2018 and joined FC Barcelona, where he signed a two-year contract. However, he was sidelined for almost all of his second season with a toe turf injury and that was a tough time for the Canadian guard.
“I don’t want to be labeled soft. In my family, it’s always been, ‘Work hard, work hard.’ Everything like that. So when people are questioning my toughness and my will to play, it kills you.
And you can’t do anything to really defend yourself other than say, ‘No, that’s not true,’ because I can’t go out there and play. So that was one of the toughest parts, mentally,” Pangos told Arlauckas.
After leaving FC Barcelona, Pangos moved to Russia and signed with Zenit Saint Petersburg.
