Itoudis expressed his desire to coach Kirilenko, who is going to settle in quite easily at CSKA.
“We all know who is Kirilenko and what does he mean for this team. Andrei will go straight into our squad and we'll give our best in order to get him back to good physical condition and to help him settle in. I have talked to him on the phone, I have already sent him the playbook and I know that he has been training. Kirilenko is a world star player, he's got big talent and I'm sure that he's gonna settle in imminently,” Itoudis underlined.
