Rudy: “We've done well in the Super Cup in recent years”

“Wearing the national team jersey and being able to win this medal is a source of pride”, said the small forward.
After clinching the Eurobasket with Spain, Rudy spoke to Realmadrid TV ahead of the Endesa Super Cup, which will get underway on Saturday against Coosur Betis in Seville (6:30pm CET). The Madrid small forward had the following to say: “Every trophy is a challenge for us. We are one of the teams to beat and we have that responsibility and pressure. Those of us who have joined later are trying to get up to speed quickly. We always say that's the Super Cup comes too soon but we've done well in recent years”.

“In every team that I play for the players must show attitude and desire. We have to keep improving little by little at this stage. It's too soon to say how our pre-season has gone because some players haven't been able to start from the beginning. This badge demands attitude and effort”.

Eurobasket champion 
“Wearing the national team jersey and being able to win this medal is a source of pride. We prepared for over a month and then we gradually got better as the tournament progressed. This group deserved this reward through dedication, humility and hard work”.
 
Responsibility
“I help Real Madrid and the national team to achieve their objectives and I've proven this through my work over the years. I'm a veteran player, with great experience. I try to make the younger players feel proud to wear the Spanish jersey. I try to be a role model in terms of effort and hard work for the younger following in my footsteps”.
