Olimpija stands by Fenerbahce, want Sato to play tomorrow

Olimpija has responded to Fenerbahce’s previous official statement which hinted that the Slovenian club had something to do with Sato’s detention by the Ljulbjana airport customs.

BC Union Olimpija Ljubljana regrets the situation involving the Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul player Romain Sato.

The situation has nothing to do with sports or our basketball club, but it is of legal matter, in which a club must not interfere and therefore not comment. We have been in contact with both Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul officials, as well as with the management of Euroleague.

Both managements fully understood that this case must be addressed from the authorities. We wish this situation, whatever it is, gets solved as soon as possible, and that player Romain Sato will play for Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul in Stožice Arena tomorrow evening.
