The information was released to Angop Thursday by the "military" basketball team director Joaquim Gomes "Kikas", saying that the club has all the procedures prepared to ensure the athlete's return, but is faced with this impasse.

For this reason, he said, there is no time horizon for his return.

He said the coaching staff continued to rely on the services of the base, which has been influential in the organizational maneuver of 1º de Agosto Basktball team.

34-year-old Manny Quezada was national champion in 2018 for 1º de Agosto team, where he has been since 2016.

Previously, the base played for Petro de Luanda, where he won in 2015 the national championship and the African Cup of Champion Clubs, being considered the most valuable player (MVP) of the continental competition.
