Alberto Abalde, forward of Real Madrid, participated together with Pablo Laso in the virtual press conference prior to his first official match with the white team: the semifinal of the Endesa Super Cup against Iberostar Tenerife (Saturday 12, 21:30, #Vamos ). The Galician (24 years old and 2.02 meters) arrived this summer at the club after disbursement of his termination clause of 1.5 million euros to Valencia. A figure that makes it the largest operation of the Laso era ... and the coach from Vitoria has now been on the bench for ten seasons.

Young, daring in attack and with quality and intelligence, Abalde arrives to rejuvenate a squad that has made history at Madrid, but which, as happens to all of us, the step comes without asking. A group that, according to the player himself, has welcomed him “phenomenally” .

“I've been doing very well these first few months, trying to adapt as soon as possible. We have done a great job during these weeks of pre-season and we already want to start competing ”, says the Spanish international, who closed last year with an average of 8.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists for 10 , A PIR of 9 in the Endesa League, and 7.8 points, 4 sacks and 1.7 passes to the basket for a PIR of 8.9 in the Euroleague.

Abalde is clear about the key to winning his first title with Madrid: solidity. "We are at a point where the teams are not fully rolled out and that helps us because this team has been together for many years," he underlines before praising his rival, Iberostar Tenerife: "It has strengthened well. It is a complete set. It will be a very tough game and we will have to get a good basketball. ”
