NEWS | 12/02/2020"We can only think about Bilbao and be prepared for a very difficult game", he explained.
"The pressure is on us. We aspire to always be competitive and to win every match. This is in the team's DNA. The only thing I think about is that it is a very demanding and difficult match. Bilbao's season is magnificent and they are there on their own merits".
Demands of the Cup
"The Cup is open and demanding. When the time comes, every team is ready for the match. Everyone makes their predictions, but it's very difficult to get them right".
"You have to refrain from making assumptions and it would be absurd to think that one year the Cup is more or less demanding. This year, like every year, there is a cast of teams that will compete at the highest level".
"Everyone has trained normally. The situation is normal at this point in the season. Randolph has a slight overload after the injury and Rudy has some problems with his abductors. Everyone has little things but, in theory, the whole team travels without problems".
Meaning of the Copa del Rey
"It's a competition I like very much. It's a very demanding basketball tournament in which the best teams come together in four days. The Cup is a special competition for me; I've experienced it as a player, a fan and a coach. It's a tournament that has something special. Every Cup is different and you experience it in a different way. My focuss is that we should be able to compete very well".
