The coach steps aside after 3 defeats in 4 days: “I was the main responsible, but on the pitch the players did the opposite of what was asked”
As of this morning, Aza Petrovic is no longer the coach of Carpegna Prosciutto. The company has called an emergency press conference, in which the coach – flanked by the president Ario Costa – has resigned. He is the second coach to leave in the current championship, after Jasmin Repesa, Petrovic’s compatriot and former assistant in the Croatian national team. The coach who had started the season with Fortitudo left for health reasons before the start of the championship, Petrovic lasted four days. They were the only two foreign Serie A coaches and they called themselves out giving up their respective contracts. The “airplane” arrived in the summer with great fanfare, signing a 2 + 2 to continue a project started a year ago with Repesa. The replacement has not yet been identified, there has been a poll for Luca Banchi, who won the Scudetto with Milan in 2014, the current coach of Latvia. Luca Dalmonte and Cesare Pancotto possible alternatives.
Return hit and run
As a former Scavolini player of the first Scudetto, Petrovic was welcomed like a king 34 years later, in a shared happiness and a romantic and suggestive return. Aza has also given up the leadership of the Brazilian national team to devote himself 100% to Vuelle. He had given a carioca imprint with the vice Savignani and above all the playmaker Pacheco and the wing Demetrio. However, the two players have progressively lost the coach’s confidence: after the abrupt exit from the Super Cup finals he had effectively deprived them of their authority. In replacement of the director came Larson while the long came out of the rotations. “Three or four months ago, when I signed, I was thinking of a long program, but we all know that unpredictable things happen in our profession and for how Vuelle plays, the first one to look in the mirror is always the coach. I didn’t like it at all – began Petrovic -. Games can be lost in different ways but not as we did with Fortitudo and especially Tortona. Yesterday morning I spoke with Ario Costa, in the afternoon we met again, I decided to terminate my contract with Carpegna Prosciutto. I am the main person responsible for the last two races and I have to take the consequences. I believe that my decision can help those who remain “.
Petrovic continued: “I’m very sorry, Pesaro is my second home but in such complicated moments you have to divide the heart, friendship from professionalism. If the players have ‘rowed against’ me? On the pitch we did the opposite of what I asked. It means that my messages do not arrive and in 30 years it has not happened often. I put my face to it. After three weeks of intense work the reaction of the team destroyed me. with you, I asked them a favor: that they start playing as a team and create the chemistry, so the results will come. Now it’s their turn. ” Even as a player Petrovic had not finished the season, so by decision of Bianchini who bet on Cook, this time he chose him himself. He had already resigned from other benches, further proof of how decent a person he is. “It is difficult to find words. The construction of the team is shared by all, we are all responsible. I did not expect Aza’s gesture, which shows how much he loves the club – assured the president Ario Costa -. The team did not help him. , Aza has helped the team in every way. I’m having a terrible day, I think it’s absolutely not his fault but that a series of circumstances led him to make this gesture. ”
