Technical Director fo the Basketball Section Alberto Herreros discussed the Euroleague draw and the singing of Rudy Fernandez.
"We are in a very strong group and we'll try to qualify as high as possible. I believe our sixth opponent may be Kazan or Cantu because they have played in the Euroleague before and are stronger than the other sides in the qualifying round, but there could be surprises."
"I'm sure Panathinaikos will come up with a a team of great players despite reducing costs. We will have to focus on one game at a time to reach the next round, but Real Madrid will be one of the strongest teams in this competition."
"Rudy Fernandez defends and attacks. He does it all and creates panic in his opponents. He is an all-rounder that will help us considerably."
"We're proud to have so many of our players in the Olympic Games with Spain. I think they are one of the favourites to reach the final."
