The coach of the Felsinei re-embraces two injuries

Virtus Bologna coach Sergio Scariolo spoke to the club’s official channels on the eve of the Euroleague trip, valid for the 12th day of the top continental club competition, against Olympiakos. The coach of the Black Vu, against the Greeks, will be able to count on two very important returns: those of Toko Shengelia and Semi Ojeleye.

“We are expecting another game with a high difficulty coefficient derived from the strength of the opponent, certainly one of the best Euroleague teams in recent years, thanks not only to some absolute top-players but also to a system that is certainly very efficient and established, with an experienced coach who has been coaching this team for several years with great technical and leadership qualities. A difficult mix of difficulties on the court, the team and the individual talent of some players awaits us, but on our side we are competing, we feel we are in the fight to be there until the end, we want to play a good game in Athens,” explained the European champion coach with Spain.

Then the point on returnees Shengelia and Ojeleye: “We need to reduce lost balls, play better third quarters, we recover some minutes from players who are not yet 100 percent, but who can rejoin the team. We travel with the goal of having a good performance and then we will see how far in terms of results we will be able to compete.”
