Stanislav Ilnitskiy is a new captain of Loko

Coaching staff of Loko decided to appoint Stanislav Ilnitsky as team captain in the 2020/21 season. Mantas Kalnietis will be the captain's assistant.

Stanislav Ilnitskiy joined Loko before the start of the 2017/18 season. As part of the “red-greens” Stas played 109 matches in all tournaments. In Loko he won the Russian Cup and became the finalist of the Eurocup.

In the first match of the 2020/21 season against Zielona Gora Stas made his debut on the captains bridge, scored 10 points, made 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

We decided to appoint Stanislav Ilnitsky as the captain this season. A charismatic player who unites the whole team, a person with a big heart, a real captain. Stas is gaining strength every year, has worked well in pre-season training, and interacts well with the players. He always gives all his best in defense, from the very first game of this season he significantly added aggression in attack, becoming more responsible for himself at important moments. I am very glad that Stas will be our new captain. Mantas Kalnietis was chosen as the captain assistant. An intelligent player who is highly respected by his teammates. Thanks to Stas and Mantas, there is always a positive atmosphere in the locker room, which is very important for team chemistry. Let's go to the goals set for the season together and play to win every match!

I will continue to give my all to the game, I will support young players in every possible way, I will try to become a real captain, both on the court and in the locker room. By my example I will charge the team to achieve the goals for the season. Special thanks to the fans who support us in every match.

Together with fans we can do a lot this season!
