“I'm a player who gives it his all on court and it's always been a goal of mine to work with Laso”, said the new Real Madrid point guard.
Heurtel has given his first interview as a new Real Madrid to the club's official media channels. The French point guard was clearly excited: “Coming here is a dream. To be at a club as big as Real Madrid, that has won so many titles, was one of my goals and I'm really happy. I've heard so many positive things about the club from my French teammates and I can't wait to get started. I'll try and give it my very best”.

“I'm a player who gives it his all out on court and wants to win everything, I'm not afraid to take responsibility. I'm coming here to try and win. I've played against Real Madrid many times and they've been great battles. The fans are always behind the team and I hope they'll get behind me too".

Pablo Laso's team philosophy and ideas about the game suit me perfectly. It's an aggressive style, quick in attack, which plays to my strengths. Working with him was one of my goals. I can't wait to get started with the team and learn from him”.

Message to the fans
“I'm so excited to be here. We're going to get back to work soon and I hope I can win lots of titles. The general aim is to win as much as possible, both the Endesa League and the Euroleague. The objective is to win everything we're playing for".
