The coach of the Milanese team stressed the importance of Mitrou-Long

After the victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv at the Giannakopoulos Tournament, Olimpia Milano coach Ettore Messina extolled the meneghini’s new addition, Naz Mitrou-Long, who scored 19 points against the Israeli team.

“He is a very important player for us because he can create a shot. He is a great guy, very humble, works hard every day. He can give us a lot on the court,” said the coach of the Red Shoes, in words reported by BasketNews.

Then Mitrou-Long himself spoke about the beginning of his adventure with the Olimpia jersey: “It’s nothing less than what everyone says. Everyone is calling for excellence. Starting with Coach Messina. He demands excellence from himself, the coaching staff and his players. I am very grateful to be in this position.”
