-- Katsikaris Sacked by Lokomotiv Kuban --
Lokomotiv Kuban announced the sacking of their manager Fotis Katsikaris. The Greek coach had a short stay in Russia after a poor string of results.
Lokomotiv Kuban’s poor results of late have cost Fotis Katsikaris’ position as manager of the club. After suffering their third defeat in four games, Lokomotiv Kuban announced their decision to part ways with the Greek manager making his stay in Russia a short one. Katsikaris signed with Lokomotiv Kuban over the summer and took over after Giorgos Bartzokas made a move to Spain for Barcelona. Former Alba coach, Sasa Obradovic, is the favorite to be named Katsikaris’ successor.
Under their previous manager, Giorgos Bartzokas, Lokomotiv Kuban had a tremendous season last year making it the Euroleague’s Final Four.
