Fenerbahce coach Bogdan Tanjevic did not hide his optimism regarding his team's away game vs Zalgiris tomorrow saying that although the game will be a difficult one his team plays better on the road.
Tanjevic began his statements by praising Zalgiris players: "There's another very, very tough game waiting for us on the road against Zalgiris. There are plenty of top class players on our opponents' roster like guards Marcus Brown, Mantas Kalnietis, big man Mirza Begic, forward Dainius Salenga. They beat Asvel with big margin in their opening game and then suffered three straight loses against very tough opponents. Now they will try to win at home for sure." and continued to express his optimism: "We are playing better on the road and that will make the game much more interesting than normal. We will try to play good and of course will be digging for a win."
Fenerbahce player Tarence Kinsey talked about adapting to European playing style: ""Euroleague is much more stronger than ever this season. All the teams are very tough and your job is not easy especially if you are on the road. It's really difficult to come back from the NBA and adjust the European kind of basketball in a sudden. But I'm trying my best to make it sooner. I believe we are not playing our best since then the beginning of the season. We need an explosion and I hope that the time has come."
