Towards Bertram Derthona-Openjobmetis Varese: the words of coach Ramondino

High ranking challenge for Bertram Derthona, engaged at the PalaEnergica Paolo Ferraris against Openjobmetis Varese at 16pm tomorrow, Sunday 5 February, in the match valid for the 18th day of the Serie A championship.

In last week's match in Treviso, coach Marco Ramondino he achieved 100 victories at the helm of the team. A goal that he commented like this: “Beyond the number of victories, for me it is a source of great pride to be part of a Club for such a long period, five seasons, having the opportunity to work continuously and carry forward ideas”.

On the characteristics of Openjobmetis, the Juventus head coach added: “Varese certainly has its own identity, talent and athleticism in all positions and plays fast basketball whose main characteristic is being able to reproduce its game at home and away, in any circumstance. From our point of view we will have to make choices, as limiting everything is impossible. Given that we may suffer in individual match-ups on an individual level, a great team effort will be needed, even in attack by making intelligent choices without giving them the opportunity to take the field.".

“The first leg – concluded coach Ramondino – he gave us a clear example of how playing against Varese creates a great challenge on a mental level. We must be prepared to resist their partials and accept the talented baskets they will make without looking at the scoreboard. We must be aware of this, because otherwise we risk losing balance on the pitch.".

Bertram Derthona communicates that the athlete Demonte Harper will not be available to coach Ramondino for tomorrow's match due to acute low back pain that occurred during the week. The player is undergoing the treatments ordered by the Club's medical staff and will be re-evaluated next week.
