Messina, Milan start new season

AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan got its training camp underway also this week. The team started its preparations for the upcoming 2019-20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season with the athletic workouts under the guidance of team’s conditioning coach Giustino Danesi at Visamara Sports Center, not too far from its Mediolanum Forum, the place where in couple of days the new head coach Ettore Messina will have his team hit the basketball floor.

Milan have its first practice game on August 28 behind closed doors against Treviglio, and its first official preseason game three days later again Junior Casale, both Italian second division teams. Coach Ettore Messina has 10 of his 14 players at disposal, with Amadeo Della Valle, Paul Biligha and Jeff Brooks with the Italian national team, and Michael Roll playing with the Tunisian national team, all absent due to the preparations for the FIBA World Cup.
