The words of Neven Spahija ahead of Reyer Venezia-Givova Scafati

A few hours before the game against Givova Scafati valid for the tenth day of the LBA, Reyer Venezia head coach Neven Spahija presented the challenge that awaits his boys, dwelling in particular on his team’s defensive performance in recent outings.

"Against London we did better, but not enough to overcome such a strong team. If we want in the future to do good things for societyà and fans we have to be better, especially in defense. We have already shown this season, several times, that we can win games thanks to the defensive half of the field. We cannot play every match to 100 points, it cannot be a solution for me and for this company;. We went from two matches in which we conceded 70 points to two that we took 100 and this è my fault. We need to change this mentality immediately " began the head coach of the orogranata.

"The competition in Italy è tough and there is no easy game becauseé all opponents are competitive, including Scafati. We have done a lot of bad things in the last few games. I am not talking about wins and losses, but about the image of a serious team and being professional. When we go on the court we have to put our heart into it. We created the Cuore Orogranata initiative to make it clear that if you play for this club you have to fight. We have to train the right way and put on the field a different mentality from the last two challenges" added Neven Spahija.
