Svetislav Pesic talked to the press ahead of Barcelona’s game against CSKA Moscow about Kevin Pangos, who broke a bone in his left foot in an early-season training and has been sidelined ever since.

Pangos was part of the team training before the game in Moscow on Thursday, although it is likely that he will make his return to the courts next season. “We have a player who has been here for six months, let’s see if he plays the playoffs or next season,” said Pesic, as adapted by Mundo Deportivo, referring to the Canadian player. “Pangos is preparing for the next season, you can see it (yourselves)”, he added.

Although it was initially estimated that Pangos would miss between four and six weeks of action, the player has not played for six months. From the club’s side, it has been made known that it is Pangos himself who does not feel yet fully recovered and prefers to wait until he feels better to make his return.
