The Presidents say goodbye to Dusan Ivkovic

Today we mourn the one and only Dusan Ivkovic. We mourn for the teacher, the wise man, the winner, the ecumenical personality. We mourn the father figure of the whole of the Olympiacos family, one of the most shining and authentic people in the ‘reds’ history book.

We mourn for the person that united two generations with tears of joy and forged like no one else the metal of the red jersey. With simplicity, passion and remarkable calmness, just like the truly great do.

It was in Rome, 24 years ago, when as fans in the tribunes watched him guide Olympiacos to win the European crown.

It was in the Istanbul final in 2012, when under his inspiring guidance, we once again crowned Olympiacos King of Europe and a few days later we came full circle winning the Greek League title after 15 whole years. We have lived through magical moments with him that surpassed our wildest dreams.

Our beloved Duda, your legacy will remain intact in the years to come.

For ever grateful.

It was the end of the '30s when the Olympiacos Basketball team was founded with players form the "Ionidio" School. Great personalities of Greek basketball wore the 'red' shirt, coaches wrote history, victories came and Olympiacos played a leading role inside and outside the Greek borders.
