The words of Ettore Messina

Ettore Messina, interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, also spoke about the future of the expiring players with Olimpia Milano: “We’ll talk about it calmly at the end of the championship to understand who got along well or who was thinking about something different.”

Separate discussion for Shabazz Napier: “He has done so much for us. We hope he enjoyed being in Milan.”

Closing remark on his of future: “Everyone is worried about my contract whose terms are known only to Mr. Armani, President Leo Dell’Orco and me.”

Last season, Ettore Messina’s team returned to win the Scudetto, snatching it from the jerseys of Virtus Segafredo Bologna. The “biancorossi,” who had finished second 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.
