Milos Teodosic is the latest player to leave Olympiakos as the Serb star has joined CSKA Moscow, the Russian club announced on July 6.
As soon as his medical tests are completed in Moscow, the Serb international will sign a three-year contract that will fetch him 1.9 million euros per year.
The 24-year-old guard will work with former Olympiakos coach Jonas Kazlauskas and stated, «I am happy that I will be playing for one of the best teams in Europe.»
He didn?t sound so happy when he told a Greek sports newspaper about his disappointment at having to leave the Reds.
“I feel like s**t. I am really sad to leave Olympiakos and I am angry I did not manage to win a league title for the fans to celebrate,» he told the Gavros newspaper on July 5.
“I realize club owners have decided to cut their budgets as things are not easy anymore in Greece. Nobody can say anything against the [Olympiakos owners] Angelopoulos brothers — they have done so much for the club — but I was just waiting for them to proposal to me, even just a nominal one, but that never happened. I wanted to stay at Olympiakos, but that’s life.»
Teodosic put on a very modest show in the Greek league finals against Panathinaikos, while his image was tarnished last summer when he was the protagonist in an ugly tussle during the Greece-Serbia friendly in Athens.
Meanwhile, reports in Italy suggested on Wednesday that Yiannis Bourousis, who also left Olympiakos, has agreed a deal with Armani Jeans Milano, which has also signed Antonis Fotsis. However, the deal will not be implemented if it is proved that Bourousis has used banned substances following his alleged involvement in a doping scandal.
