Turdziladze was leading one of the candidates of championship TSU by points (16.8), while Korsantia was a leader in rebounds (11.5). Both of them had a successful season and obviously, they received many offers from both Georgian and foreign clubs.
Both of them will meet a number of legionnaires in their clubs. Korsantia has 2 Lithuanian and 5 African in the team players, while Turdziladze’s “Ruile” has American, Bosnian and Swiss players.
“This year’s well-played season and the appearance in the national team have attracted the interest of various European teams, but at this stage I chose the French team Caen, with whom I have already signed a contract and will defend its honor next season. I would like to thank TSU and the Georgian national time for their great contribution to my career advancement. ”
“Two weeks ago I was contacted by a French club with whom I signed a contract two days ago. Of course, the period I played for the team played a big role. Those two games gave me an opportunity to appeared more. This team is not in the first division and I had offers from other, stronger divisions, but this time I chose this league, which is the third in France. This is not a weak division. I have an important step to take there, after which I will have a more realistic offer from the top leagues.”
