Lundberg’s grief for Scariolo: “When he left, I found a coach who believes in my abilities”


An excellent season is going through Virtus Bolognathe simile “roundly sits” in its third place Euroleaguedespite the fact that she had to change coaches shortly before the start of her official duties, dismissing Sergio Scariolo and signing him Luca Banki.

One of the most “favored” by this development is Ife Lundberg. The Danish guard was not one of his… favorites Scriolo and had been effectively left out of the team, but o Banky has now given him a big role and he justifies it, counting 9 points average (52% 2-pointers, 37% 3-pointers).

In fact, in an interview with “Gazzeta dello Sport”, Mr Lundberg talked about Scariolo’s departure and pointed out the lack of trust he showed in him, making a comparison with Banky.

In detail what he said:

On Scariolo’s departure: “When he left the team I continued to work and believe in myself because I know what I can give on the field. Then I found a coach and teammates who believe in my abilities. Now I’m happy to be here. We are a good team, humble and ambitious at the same time. I just needed a chance to get back into the game. When they gave it to me, I took advantage of it.”

For his appeal of getting critical attacks on him: “Nothing special, I’ve always played like that. And I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. The Lundberg Belt? At that moment of the match I feel all the positive rhythm of the game entering me. And when I’m hot I’m not afraid to take charge in the attack.”

For the huge support the team receives from the fans: “It’s the best place for someone in my line of work. There is passion, skill, warmth here. The energy that Virtus fans inspire is extraordinary. We want to win a lot for them.”
