Sergio Llull is a Real Madrid symbol. The Menorcan arrived at the club in 2007 in time for the playoffs, having been endorsed by Joan Plaza. He quickly found himself a spot on the team and in the hearts of Madrid’s fans, thanks to his sharpness and nerve. Since then, he has played a crucial role in all of Madrid and the Spanish side's acheivements. He was European champion with the national squad in 2009 and 2011 and won silver at the London Olympic Games in 2012.
His characteristics are a perfect match with the style of play implemented by Pablo Laso. His quick and potent legs enable him to be very damaging in counterattacks and end-to-end transitions. In static play he can also punish rival teams with his fearsome three-point shot (43% success rate during the 2012/13 season).
During his career as a Madrid player, Llull has switched between the point guard and shooting guard roles, according to the style and needs of each group. In the 2014-15 season he was an outstanding player in helping to obtain the historic quadruple. Sergio was named MVP in the Super Cup and in the final of the League, and had an unforgettable season.
