Ousmane Diop fears the muscles of Virtus Bologna

In the usual press conference on the eve of the challenge against Virtus Bologna, Ousmane Diop said, “Facing Bologna at this time must be an extra stimulus, they are the strongest team in the league. We know the opponent and we will try to focus on ourselves. We worked very well during the week and we want to prove it on the field with the right attitude.”

The Dinamo basketball player fears above all the muscles of the opponents, “Their physicality is superior to many teams but we will try not to get crushed athletically. We will definitely watch them but focus on ourselves. Virtus has Euroleague players, who have played many years at high levels and have experience. We have to play as a team, both on offense and defense.”

“Mentally I feel stronger than last year, technically the coach will say. I need to improve on certain aspects to smooth out some mistakes. I am trying to learn from the experience of staff, teammates and coach. Last year I had to recover from a nagging injury, but this summer I worked well and that helped me a lot,” Diop concluded.
