Jaume Ponsarnau has taken over as Valencia Basket head coach for the upcoming season and he noted that they face a tough year but still look forward to it:

“We start the toughest season we could imagine and we face it with great enthusiasm. And with a huge challenge, which is to do all the things that can be done well with maximum energy, maximum health and maximum strength, that will be very important. For this, we have to be rigid in our planning. Regardless of this, we want to be competitive every game.”

Ponsarnau also put the emphasis on chemistry and teamplay: “We are already a group of 14 players, plus youth reinforcements. And the main objective is not to be only a group of 14 but a team of 14. And that means at the level of chemistry and at the group level to function in the locker room, on the road and especially on the court. The correlation of the players, their virtues and their non-virtues serve to get to know each other a little more. And we know how to take advantage of each other to be as competitive as possible”
