The words of Luca Banchi

Luca Banchi spoke after the win with Barcelona: “Tough game, Barcelona è came here to impose their physicality and talent. In the beginning we did not respond well, we were chaotic and frantic, in the second half we were a better version of ourselves. Starting with defense, we also grew in offense".

" We had positive energy from everyone, I mention Lundberg who è took a lot of responsibility" in the second half. It’ s important to win a game like this, è something we really needed, to show that this è s the way we can compete in a very difficult tournament like this.”

The Bianconeri came back from -16. “I think the common sense, to respond to an’inertia that was penalizing us. The common and widespread sense of responsibility, everyone could have intervened to change the’inertia. After halftime we compacted and found balance in our play and quality of defense. Spirit, dedication and a common sense of belonging to the team that can’t disregard everyone’s talent, but there’s no one who can’perform without the’help of others.”

Virtus third, and beat second. “The victory gives us the knowledge that there is no’è future without an ounce of madness, the one put on the field in the second 20’ as well as discipline and spirit. We showed two faces, the first one scares me, and I hope not to see it anymore. It’ a team victory, a special night. We also took advantage of the advantage of the field, this crowd frame gives you an extra’energy. They are good guys, they care. And it’s not the coach’s victory, but the team’s.
