"I want to say congratulations to the players for this year's European ride, which was very dignified, very beautiful. I want to thank them from my heart: it was a nice experience for all of us. Except for a few moments, we stood with dignity and we achieved some big wins against traditional, expensive, experienced teams. There is a bitterness because basically we lost the qualification not for a victory, but for a shot, a turnover, a moment. This of course must not reduce our great performance in this year's Eurocup. I also thank the fans throughout this journey. Home and away, they were by our side."
