Defender Anton Ponkrashov signed a contract with Nizhny Novgorod, reports the press service of the basketball team.
The agreement with the player is signed for one season.
– Why did you choose Nizhny Novgorod? First, this team has always been nice to me. Nizhny has character and fights to the end – for the city, for the coach, for the fans. Here they give a chance and at the same time allow you to remain yourself – this is also an important feature of “NN”. Secondly, the coach played a big role, of course. We’ve already spoken with Zoran, discussed what’s expected of me, so I’m ready to get to work.
And thirdly, five months ago my daughter was born, so Russia and Russian clubs were a priority, although there were also options to continue my career in Iran. When Nizhny Novgorod presented an offer, we quickly agreed on the terms. I am very happy to have signed a contract and to have been part of such a great team, said the press service of the team, citing Ponkrashov.
Ponkrashov is the European champion in the Russian team, bronze medalist of the Olympic Games (2012). At the club level, the basketball player became a three-time winner of the VTB United League.
