Andrei Vatutin: “Kyle Hines needed a new challenge”
The President of CSKA Moscow, Andrei Vatutin, spoke to Sport Express about the “divorce” between CSKA and Kyle Hines.
“I have to say with regret that the news of Kyle’s departure from CSKA is true,” said Vatutin. “Kyle called me and the coach this morning and told his teammates that he needed a new challenge, that he wanted to change the situation after seven successful seasons in Moscow.”
Hines had a contract with CSKA until 2021, but the US player needed a new challenge in his career.
“Of course it is difficult to deal with this news. We wanted to expand our cooperation in the past, but the player’s decision remained unchanged. We respect and understand the decision of a player who gave CSKA so much, achieved great victories and each of us We wish him and his family health and success in this new chapter of his career. “
