After several meetings and hours of negotiations, neither side will renew their cooperation. Obradovic leaves Fenerbahce with the best memories after seven years. The Turkish club has some financial difficulties, so the budget cut was the main reason why he had to say goodbye to the Serbian coach.
Obradovic will take a year off from coaching, as he announced. “A big thank you to all the players I’ve worked with for the past seven years. They are the main ones who have achieved these excellent results. Special thanks to everyone, without whom this job makes no sense, the fans. They have shown us endless support and love in every moment during these wonderful seven years. There were so many moments that they gave us that I will never forget them in my life. “
