In a rather embarrassing moment during a press conference at an event organised by FIBA, Italy coach Ettore Messina has criticised the governing body’s new international window but refused to properly lash out.
However, Messina, who was asked the question by Israeli journalist David Pick said that all the coaches felt the same to which the press conference mediator, Mark Clark attempted to cut the answer short as it was potentially damaging to FIBA.
And when Messina finished answering the question, Clark instantly asked if there were any questions about the game, desperately trying to change the subject.
