The words d Gigi Datome

Gigi Datome spoke to Eurohoops about the new Olimpia Milano: “It’s a very competitive and deep roster, but it’s also a team in the making, especially with the fact that six of us Italians and Johannes Voigtmann were committed to the national team until a few days ago. There is a great need to be together.”

“I have confidence in the work, in the coach, in the society, so we can get where we want to go, but now it is really early and it is difficult to make predictions. The goal, as in recent years, is to play with everyone in Europe, to show that we are up to the task. Slowly, the main goal is to be together in the gym, to work and grow as a team.”

“It takes work and daily commitment to achieve such important goals. In Italy we want to compete to win everything and in the EuroLeague we will try to get to the playoffs in better shape than last year. But I repeat: there is still a lot of work to be done in the gym,” he concluded.
