Basketball returns to Thessaloniki, where it will host Belarus and Vassilis Mouratos spoke about the great interest that exists from the world for this match.
SDNA was at the media day, with Vassilis Mouratos expressing the joy of the internationals for the return of Ethniki to a basketball city like Thessaloniki, emphasizing that they need the support of the people.
In detail what they said:
“We are very happy that the National team is returning to Thessaloniki, a very basketball city with a long history. We hear that there is a lot of interest in the game and we really need our people to celebrate a victory that we need.
The appearance we made from 25 ‘onwards in Great Britain does not represent our ambitions, effort and homogeneity. We relaxed after +15, we got some habits that we each had personally, we made some mistakes and unconsciously the ego came out on top of us.
There is a great will, we want to make a fresh start and win the match against Belarus. The opponents have eight players from the same team, so they have homogeneity.
In the windows you have to be constantly vigilant as you have few days to prepare. Belarus’ victory over Turkey is a bell for us and our appearance in Newcastle is an even bigger bell. We have no excuse for tomorrow and that is why we must present ourselves as ready and passionate as possible for the victory “.
