Bayern: Big goal for EuroLeague

The final four of the EuroLeague was within reach for the Bayern Munich basketball team twice in a row, but the approach hasn’t changed despite the successes in the competition. “The play-offs remain a huge, very high goal,” said managing director Marko Pesic.

In the 20/21 and 21/22 seasons, Bayern were the first German participants in the knockout stages to fail 3-2 in the quarter-finals. “We have made good steps in the last two years, especially in the EuroLeague,” said club president Herbert Hainer. Of course you will “try again to reach the play-offs”.

On Thursday (8.30 p.m. / MagentaSport), the Munich team will start the new season at home against Fenerbahce Istanbul. Pesic emphasized that major challenges await the German runners-up in the coming months. “Of the 18 EuroLeague clubs, 16 probably want to make the play-offs, ten want to go to the Final Four and five think they can win the EuroLeague,” said the 45-year-old.

Bayern know exactly “how difficult it was to reach the play-offs in the last two years. That’s why this experience is immensely important for us. We’ll stay calm, no matter how the season goes,” said Pesic: ” Of course we want to make the play-offs, but it will be very, very difficult.”

Alba Berlin is the second German participant in the European premier class. The champion is challenged on Friday (8 p.m. / MagentaSport) against Partizan Belgrade. The Munich and Berlin start after two wins in the Bundesliga in the international competition.

Professional contract! Bayern binds offensive jewel

Professional contract! Bayern binds offensive jewel

FC Bayern has extended the contract with attacking talent Gabriel Vidović.

As the German record champions announced on Wednesday, the Croatian U19 international has been tied to the club until 2025. “The new working paper of the 18-year-old offensive player will automatically be converted into a professional contract on July 1,” the club said in a statement.

Vidović has been training regularly with head coach Julian Nagelsmann’s professional team since last autumn. He was in the squad for the first time in the game against RB Salzburg in the Champions League, but he still has to wait to play.

“He’s an outstanding footballer,” said Nagelsmann recently about the youngster. In the regional league he scored 12 goals in 20 games for the Munich second team this season. Seven assists were added, although the top scorer had been slowed down by injuries in the meantime.

Vidović wants to play for Bayern for a long time
“Gabriel Vidović is a player who is technically very talented and creates a great goal threat from the gaps. He’s been with us for six years, received excellent training at the FC Bayern Campus and should take the next step with our pros,” explained Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić.

The player himself, who can be used both as a hanging striker and as a center forward, was very happy about the trust of the club and thanked everyone “who has accompanied me on my way so far. I know that this was only a small step, but I will do everything to be able to play for FC Bayern for a long time to come.”

Vidović came to FCB from FC Augsburg in 2016
