Despite the FIBA ban imposed to the Spanish national team for Eurobasket 2017 and also the threat about the Olympics, coach Sergio Scariolo believes that the “Furias Rojas” will be in Rio.
As he said to Marca.com: “I can not conceive the Games without the Spanish team that won on the court the right to participate. Those who have to work in order to resolve this situation are doing well, We work as if there is no possibility to miss the Olympics”.
The Spanish coach is categorical: “There have been moments of concern for erroneous reports. There’s no penalty which exclude us from the Games, it was just a dramatic interpretation of what was happening. All the players with whom I have spoken believe that it’s not possible to be absent from the Games”.
