Laso confirms that Llull will not play against Fenerbahçe

Pablo Laso, coach of Real Madrid, assured that against Fenerbahce, this Thursday in a match of the fifth day of the Euroleague, “theThe internal battle will be very important and decisive. “He also announced that Llull will be out. “He has not trained all week. He has been tested and it seems that he has something more than a simple blow, so he is resting and we are going to see how he is doing for the weekend,” said the Real Madrid coach.

The fight of Walter Tavares, Vincent Poirier and Jan Vesely under the hoops can be one of the keys to the game.

“It would also introduce Devin Booker into the equation. Of course, the inside battle can be part of the control of the game. They are very athletic centers and can also help the outside game, so the inside battle is going to be very important and decisive.” Laso said.

Fenerbahce is an almost new team, re-founded around Nando de Colo and Vesely, a not inconsiderable base.

“It is a different team with a new coach. Last year with Igor Kokoskov they went from less to more with a very American style of play and at the end of the championship they were one of the best teams, although Vesely’s injury hurt them a lot, “explained the Real Madrid coach in a telematic press conference.

“They have made a very recognizable team with the Baskonia signings, Pierria Henry and Achile Polonara, with Devin Booker who can play four and five, shoot and open the field, with Marial Shayok, with Dyshawn Pierre … It is a highly compensated team that will be dangerousLaso continued.

Madrid have not lost at home, in any competition so far this season, and Fenerbahce have not won away in the Euroleague.

I would like to be undefeated at the Palace in July next year. LWe had only a few matches, but Fenerbahce lost at Panathinaikos a game that they had won. We have played at a good level the games we have played at home, but surely the Turkish team is going to force us to play our best, “observed the coach.

Laso also spoke of the arrival of Guerschon Yabusele and its performance.

“Yabusele came from playing in the NBA and in China and before the pandemic we played against Asvel Villeurbanne and he was already there. Then we followed him and saw his potential and the qualities he had to play with us. With the absences of Trey Thompkins and Anthony Randolph he is becoming a basic player for the team. We are very happy with his performance, “he stressed.

The coupling of the new signings has been very fast

“In the case of Thomas Heurtel and Adam Hanga they already ‘knew us’, but Yabusele and Nigel Williams-Goss were new and in three or four training sessions in the Super Cup we already gave a team feeling. Everyone has helped, but it is clear that it remains a lot of room for improvement ahead, “said Laso.

The changes in the base position have been the most drastic.

“The most demanding of the point guard game is me. Heurtel has a talent for generating game and baskets. Williams-Goss is still less creative, but more orderly and Carlos Alocén is insurance. The three complement each other very well, “he explained.

The Madrid coach also spoke about the situation of Anadolu Efes, current Euroleague champion and who still does not know the victory in the four days played.

“Now you will understand me better when I say that this competition is very demanding. When you are not well any team can beat you. Efes will be better, safe and in fact I do not think they can be left out of the playoffs. They are suffering from the rigor of the competition, “concluded Pablo Laso.
