Second day of preparation at the PalaEstra (after the days spent at the Olympic center of Coni in Tirrenia) for the Emma Villas Aubay Siena, which today also carried out the media day. The players from the biancoblu team met with the press in the afternoon, before starting training, and made some statements.
The middle blocker Fabio Ricci has won a championship, three Italian Cups, three Italian Super Cups in his career. And with the blue jersey of the national team he won the gold medal at last year’s European championships. “Expectations are high – are his words – and our main goal is salvation. We try to reach it, then we will try to take away other satisfactions as well. I can bring a great desire to work and do well to this team. We all agree that we have to start with our feet on the ground, thinking about one race at a time. In Tirrenia we found a nice sports center that I didn’t know about. It was a way to find each other and to be together for a few days at the beginning of the season “.
Omar Biglino is also among the team’s central players: “I am very curious and happy to start this new adventure – he said this afternoon. – We have been here in Siena for just two days, so this is just the beginning. We are getting to know each other, we are a nice group of guys who want to work. And in fact in the gym we are already pushing, I am very positive. With Fabio Ricci I have already played for two years in Perugia, I know him very well. We are good friends. Mazzone I started to know him now. They are certainly two very strong power plants. Team unity is always an important quality that allows a team to come out and achieve important goals. We will have to work well together and do our utmost to try to improve every day. This is the right key to achieving good goals ”.
Giacomo Raffaelli returns to Emma Villas Aubay Siena after an important and significant journey: “This is definitely a good team – were his statements. – In the roster there are many friends and players that I know and with whom I have already played together. The goal we set ourselves is the achievement of salvation, which we hope to achieve in the shortest possible time, and then we will see where we can get in the course of the work. Over the years I have made a good journey, I have played a lot, even abroad with two years in France. So I definitely grew up compared to my first experience in Siena.
