Zeljko Obradovic was not satisfied at all with Fenerbahce players following the blowout loss to Real Madrid at home (65-94).

“You may have bad days, but there should be no moments when we don’t fight. Some of my players haven’t even fought today. I told them in the dressing room, and I am not afraid to repeat here. I have a responsibility as a coach.

We have to respect the people here who have helped us with everything in seven years. These people do not deserve to watch this image tonight. We all have limits.

But if you give up after a few minutes, this is very bad. This is my feeling tonight. I’m so sorry because our fans don’t deserve to watch this image.

Our work is very difficult until the end of the season. It’s very, very difficult. I can’t see that we can do something in the EuroLeague. Someone can criticize how I speak as a coach. But I’m the last to give up,” Obradovic told reporters.

Fenerbahce is at 11-14, tied with Khimki, Olympiacos and Armani Milano for the eighth place in the standings.
