“Now I’m at Zenit, and then we’ll see” – Javier Pascual

Head Basketball CoachZenith » Javier Pascual during a conversation with , he answered a question regarding his future in St. Petersburg.

In the 2023/24 season, Zenit won the Russian Cup and Super Cup and also became bronze medalists of the VTB United League. At the end of the tournament, the media learned that Barcelona was interested in inviting Pascual, and the club’s representatives had already conducted preliminary negotiations with the specialist.

— It was a very long season. We started well with a victory in the Super Cup. After that we built a team, had some problems in the regular season, but we were ready for the Russian Cup and we won it. They then became the best team in the second stage of the regular VTB United League championship. Unfortunately, in the latter part of the season there were many unfortunate moments with injuries. I could write a book about everything that happened at the end. We won bronze, but obviously we wanted to win the championship. We couldn’t win the Belov Cup, but we should be more or less satisfied with this season, despite the failure in the playoffs.

— Are you leaving Zenit?

– Let’s see what happens. I’m here now, but we’ll see.

— If you stay, will you have enough strength for the next season in the VTB United League?

— I am full of energy for everything, despite the years. Yes, I am getting older and older, but, to be honest, I feel young,” Pascual told .

Pascual, 51, has led Zenit since February 2020. In April 2021, the coach signed a new three-year agreement with the bleus-blancs-bleus. Pascual led the St. Petersburg club to victory in the VTB League in the 2021/22 season.
