TIM CUP A2
THE PROTAGONISTS TALK



 
Name: STEVEN
Surname: SHITTU
Born: Lagos (NIG) il 25/10/1979 – 193 cm
Role: Spiker
Team: MERCATONE UNO PINETO 
 
Few hours before the beginning of ht eTim Cup A2 Final Four we have been chatting a bit with Shittu, number one of Pineto, and not only for the t-shirt’s number.


 


Steve, the finl is in less than one week. How is the mood by the team and what are you expecting?


“I think that if we play as we know, I mean if we play good we can defeat Taranto again, even in the semifinal, after the victory in the championship. Taanto is a tough team, but i think we could  win again”.


 


Many people say that Pineto is too much depending on you: what do you think?


“One can’t win alone. The team is made up by six players, that must be a group with a single target, victory. we all give our best, and that will b the only way to defeat Taranto”.


 


Some fun: is there a player in taranto you would hit by spiking?


“Well, if I must say it, then Richars Schuil, for he is a really good player, one of the best of the whole championship”.
