The Danish basketball player Gabriel ‘Iffe’ Lundberg has finished in the Russian club CSKA Moscow.
The two parties have thus agreed to terminate the cooperation, writes CSKA Moscow on its website.
The break comes after the Danish star already at the end of February packed his bag and went home to Denmark. He did so in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
– I have had to make a very difficult decision, which is based on my family’s safety, says Gabriel ‘Iffe’ Lundberg to his now former club’s website.
He thanks the club’s management and fans for the support he has received since joining the club in the middle of last season.
At CSKA Moscow, he has been one of the driving forces in the EuroLeague, from which the club has now been thrown out due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
– ‘Iffe’ has shown his best qualities in front of Europe and the whole world. He had one of the key roles when we reached Final 4 last season, says club president Andrey Vatutin.
The Danish basketball player switched to CSKA Moscow from Polish Zielona Gora in February last year. Initially, he played on a contract that was valid for the rest of the season.
He renewed his partnership with the Russian club over the summer, signing a three-year contract. That contract no longer exists.
