Barcelona head coach Svetislav Pesic was critical of the media and stated that his team deserves more respect from the press.

Here is what the experienced coach told reporters in the post-game press conference of Game 3 against Anadolu Efes.

“Yesterday, at the pre-game press conference, in which Barca had a lot of time to prepare for the third Euroleague game and there were only one Barca TV journalist and one radio girl.

This is the respect we get for our year. We won the Copa Del Rey, we are first in the ACB league, we beat the favorites, we won the second game in the Euroleague playoffs. We need respect.”

Barcelona will face Efes in Game 4 on Friday (26/04) and has to defeat the Turks to avoid elimination (2-1).
