The president of the Russian basketball federation Andrei Kirilenko discussed various topics with Mozzart Sport, including Dejan Bodiroga being named Euroleague Basketball president, via Eurohoops:

He is familiar with the problems, among the few people with an understanding of both sides. He knows what FIBA wants, as well as EuroLeague. I believe both sides have compelling arguments. It’s now up to Dejan to bring them together looking to take basketball in the right direction. I think he can do it,” Kirilenko said.
