Giancarlo Ferrero at the Varese Basketball assembly:
«With the ‘old’ team-mates and all the staff, we have to let the newcomers understand what it means to play for this team and this audience. It’s going to be important to illustrate what our identity is going to be. I think they already understand how we work after today’s first training session. Although this is my fifth season, it’s always a new beginning for me. I feel like I have to demonstrate something new every day because whatever it is that you earn in basketball, it is never taken for granted. But I’m ready».
