Pero Antic and Luigi Datome have enjoyed a close bond during their time together at Fenerbahce and now it’s over.

Antic completed his move to Crvena Zvezda on Monday, ending his tenure at the Istanbul side but he leaves with memories, including cutting Datome’s hair after their EuroLeague success in May.

The Italian international, currently locked in on Eurobasket took time to post a farewell message on Instagram.

“Guys, you must know that each time I write a post like this one, or that one for Ekpe, Bogdan, but also any post which talks good about any person, animal, city or fact… Pero after few minutes always texted me what a liar I am, that I don’t believe in any single words that I wrote, that I did it only for… let’s say cozying up people! Now it’s your turn! I don’t care to cozy you up! Finally, you won’t invade my space in the Lock room, you won’t pull my beard, you won’t cut again my beautiful hair, you won’t bother me when I’m reading, you won’t infect our common spaces, you won’t ask me to bring you to the gym! But… there is a but! What a winner and an incredible teammate you have been! Practices and trips won’t be the same without your never ending will to talk and mock people. One of my best teammates ever! I gonna miss you like crazy brate!!”
