Ettore Messina asks for continued affection

A guest at a promotional event, Ettore Messina returned to the winning of the Scudetto.

“We had great support from the public who always pushed us not only when things were going well. Maybe in Milan it hadn’t happened for a long time. On the bench I felt that the audience pushed us to go on the counterattack, to defend and did so throughout the final series. This is an incentive for us, we want continuous affection as it was in the final,” the red and white coach told a select audience.

Last season, Ettore Messina’s team came back to win the scudetto, shaking it off Virtus Segafredo Bologna. The red-and-whites, who had finished second right behind Sergio Scariolo’s team in the regular season, immediately brought the court factor to their side in the final series and never let the Felsinians catch them again. In the Euroleague, Sergio Rodriguez (who said goodbye to the Red Shoes in the summer to return to Spain) and his teammates were eliminated by Ergin Ataman’s Anadolu Efes, who would win the tournament for the second year in a row.
