There may still no longer be an attack on the participant that goes to the locker room. at the conclusion of the healthy, 30 policemen every pushed us into a combat. We acquired right into a fight with Georgia's legitimate police. i am calling out to FIBA and i have also informed FIBA's officials.

We got here right here to play basketball, now not for the rest. So everything should live on the courtroom, but regrettably, a huge scandal took place off the court docket. Such things do not go well with the spirit of activities. A basketball video game became imagined to be performed nowadays, but lamentably what happened went beyond basketball. we have two extra video games left in Georgia and, unluckily, what happened in the corridors nowadays become against the spirit of the recreation. We anticipated a extra gentlemanly treatment, but lamentably, it did not ensue.

There was a basketball online game with two overtimes on the court docket. every so often we played well and often Georgia performed smartly, however after our player, Furkan Korkmaz, became disqualified, three opposing team players attacked him in the corridors, while security guards attacked our participant and our trainer. We got here right here to play basketball, now not box. for this reason, we are very disturbed by means of the safety weak spot skilled today. we will follow up on this difficulty as smartly".

We got here to Georgia expecting to be in a sister country. sure, there turned into tension between the players on the courtroom these days, however isn't viable for us to accept what happened later on. gamers can have tension with each other on the court docket, however they're friends off the court docket. It is terribly sad that the protection guards are additionally concerned in the incident nowadays. Of direction, Georgia gained the suit, I congratulate them too, however that's now not the point.
