News: Messina could have quit Real Madrid

Following a season in which he failed to bring any trophy to Real Madrid, Ettore Messina could have resigned as coach of the team. If officially confirmed, this would be the second time the 50-year-old Italian offered to quit, although now in a definite manner. There is already the name of Evgeniy Pashutin, who recently left CSKA Moscow, on the table to guide the Spanish team, which is already missing newly departured basketball operations director Antonio Maceiras.
Messina was hired mid last year to replace Joan Plaza and is one of the winningest ever coaches in Europe, having guided Virtus Bologna and CSKA to two Euroleague titles each, besides conquering various domestic championships and cups.

UPDATE: Citing several sources, tubasket.com assures Messina will keep coaching Real Madrid.
