New Real Madrid player, Petr Cornelie, spoke to the club's official media in an interview: "It's great for me. It's a wonderful experience and a huge opportunity to progress to the next level".
"One of my main objectives was to play at the best level, so playing in the Euroleague is a challenge for me. Playing for Real Madrid, a team that plays in the Euroleague and fights to win it, is fantastic. It's a huge challenge. I just want to be competitive and prove that I can perform very well at this level”.
His French team-mates
"It's nice to be able to have all these French players that I know, talking and interacting with them. This is one of the reasons why I signed for the club. I talked to them before and they told me that when you come here you never want to leave. They're very happy here; Madrid is a fantastic city and this is a huge club. Each season you fight to be champions in Spain and in Europe. It's a very competitive team, it's great to be here. They really love all this and they told me I'm going to love it too".
"I'm happy to be playing with Fabien Causeur, I've never played alongside him. I've watched him for a long time so let's see how we can bring the best out in each other".

"Having the opportunity to play here is obviously brilliant, I couldn't turn it down. Being able to play and look to win the Euroleague and the Endesa League is awesome. It's a big opportunity for me".
