BOLOGNA-VARESE: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Segafredo Virtus Bologna-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:

«We are very happy with the season we played. We have no regrets at all. Indeed, the predominant feeling today is that of satisfaction. But I would like to thank my players for what they have done. We closed the regular season with 32 points – last year, it was enough to make the playoffs while this year, we are out on point difference. We also took part in a European Cup. So, no regrets about today’s game – Bologna proved to be stronger than us and the result in the FIBA Basketball Champions League bears witness to this. We knew that winning here would have been an almost prohibitive undertaking. The results on other courts over the last few days may not have helped us and, today, we are out on point difference, but regret is not an overwhelming feeling in comparison to all the good things we have done this season. The lads have been commendable and have always played in a dignified way, fighting to the end, both in the league and in the cup. I congratulate them for having fought right to the end».
