Arturas Gudaitis has been recovering from a knee injury for the past nine months and is very close to stepping on the floor again in Olimpia Milan jersey. It will happen under the new head coach in Ettore Messina who, according to Gudaitis, improved a lot of things since his arrival:
“Everything. I could name and name. From team play to ballroom activities, we finally have a common locker room. Which is funny, but it’s a big advantage. We are a real family now”, he said, per 15min.lt.
Arturas also noted that Messina is quite a demanding coach but also a friend: “I can only describe it in the best words. What everyone says is so. This is a tough coach who demands from players. Outside the floor, he can talk to you as a friend. On the floor, we know what he is and how much he demands of us. He wants everyone to be fine. Messina is a perfectionist and is asking for it from others.”
Aside from Messina, Gudaitis is also thankful to have Luis Scola to learn from on the court: “He is a very good teacher. It would be difficult to find one on the floor. Now I have both a pitch teacher and a good coach teacher. For me, it will be super to return to play.”
