The new captain of the Italian champions is going to be Andrea Cinciarini, as Livio Proli, president of the team, stated on La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Alessandro Gentile needs to decide if he is still a boy or a mature man. He is still a player of Olimpia Milano but he has to show that the three-year deal that he has with us reflects what I saw in him a year and a half ago and I have not fully seen during the last season. He had a psychological breakdown due to his many injuries and coming into the playoffs he had so much insecurity. He told the reporters that he was going to leave Olimpia Milano during the summer just after the end of the last championship final. These selfish statements brought the attention on him and not on Olimpia Milano’s success”, said Armani’s president.
“He is still part of the system. If he’ll be able to be a man in this system, he may end in the NBA in the upcoming years. Now, Cinciarini is the new captain. Cinciarini is “heard” in the locker room” Proli added.
