The words of Ettore Messina

Ettore Messina spoke to Repubblica on the day of the start of the playoffs: “In sports I hear so many want to or must do. But they are two verbs that do not take into consideration the opponent, because they want, and must, the others as well. The rest are words of those who want to inflame the audience.”

Turnover chapter: “Those excluded are training like crazy: to Davies I explained what Voigtmann gives us right now. To Pangos that we would have a hard time playing with three small guards.”

“I dream of returning to the atmosphere of last year. When the Forum crowd pushed us to win, it was a very nice moment of cohesion between team and city.”

Last season, Ettore Messina’s team returned to win the Scudetto, snatching it from the jerseys of Virtus Segafredo Bologna. The red-and-whites, who had finished in second place 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.
