Milan Barbitch is the in-form man from the divided start to the season. The 21-year-old point guard is surprising and has become one of the BYers’ main offensive weapons. Three first months of promising championships which contrast with his Parisian season.
This is called a win-win deal. On the one hand, Milan Barbitch, in search of playing time and responsibilities, found the field of expression he was looking for. On the other, Fos-sur-Mer, the last payroll of Betclic ÉLITE (1.03 million euros), smelled the good shot. Born in Cagnes-sur-Mer, Milan Barbitch is the little clearing in the middle of the Ditch grayness. “We are going to make surprises soon”assured the leader of 21 years, after 6e straight defeat of the BYers in the leagueagainst Boulogne-Levallois, Friday.
His team’s top scorer with 12.2 points per game, the son of Yann Barbitch (deputy general manager of the French men’s team), seems more fulfilled on the shores of the Mediterranean than in Ile-de-France. Behind the Juhann Begarin and Ismaël Kamagaté projects, Milan Barbitch struggled to find the right fuel for his first year in Betclic ELITE.

He was the detonator of the divided revolt, until bringing his team to four lengths on a big award-winning shot at the start of money time (77-73, 34 ‘). Insufficient, however, because “Wemby” and his band immediately flew to the score to seal their 9e victory in 10 games.
“He’s a kid who should go far, he has everything to get there”incense Rémy Valin, coach son. “He has a lot of characteristics of a very high level player. He has also toughened up: we can get into him, he will always respond and even raise his level of play. He listens, he is good, confident and has a real shot. » In short, everything Fos-sur-Mer needs to return to victory and snatch its maintenance at the end of the season.
