His name has recently been connected to CSKA and the scenarios of him signing with the Russian powerhouse are endless. Milutinov’s priority right now is to “go back to training and get stronger”, as he said in his recent interview with Sportklub.

“After this decision, I’m not thinking so much about the Euroleague, but how to get back into the training process as soon as possible because I’ve lost a lot of form. I was also injured before the season ended, I had an ankle injury, so the first thing for me is to go back to training and get stronger as much as possible. I’m not thinking about next season yet.”

After spending his fifth year with Olympiacos (signed in 2015), Milutinov has fallen in love with Greece and the city of Athens. Leaving Athens and moving to Moscow will definitely be a tough decision.

“I don’t know exactly. The decision has just been announced, I will still be here because I adore Greece. I will stay here for a while, to train and work, but also to enjoy.”

I love Athens. It’s, in my opinion, the best city, but I really wouldn’t want to talk about it now. The season has just ended and I would not like to discuss it. “
