The Greek Ilias Kantzouris will replace the Italian Mimo Cancellieri on the bench of the Limoges basketball club next season.
The Greek Ilias Kantzouris, who led this season AEK Athens, replace the Italian Mimo Cancellieri on the bench of the Limoges basketball club, the CSP announced on Monday.
Crowned European champion thirty years ago, Limoges went through a tasteless season before scaring themselves with eight defeats in the last ten days that brought them dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Finally fifteenth in the regular season of Elite, the CSP therefore entrusts its destiny to Ilias Kantzouris, who made his debut as an istant coach in major European clubs such as Kaunas (2011-2012) and Kazan (2013-2014) .
During the last exercise, he led AEK Athens to sixth place in the regular season of the Greek Championship before stopping in the quarter-finals of the play-offs, as in the Champions League (BCL), a competition oscillating between C2 and C3 on the European scene.
In two seasons at the head of the CSP, Mimo Cancellieri qualified Limoges for the Elite play-offs once last year (4th) when his men were stopped in the quarter-finals by Dijon.
