Rousselle: "I would like to stay in Bilbao for a long time"

The captain of the 'men in black' assumes his role as leader and hopes that the injured will return to increase the number of victories. Ask not to compare yourself to last year.


Rousselle already dares with Spanish. He is a very lively, restless guy who wants to integrate himself into the places he goes, and the language barrier was not going to be exactly like that endless Manaslu that tries to climb these days Txikon. He is the captain of Bilbao Basket together with Balvin and in Miribilla he feels at home. "I would like to stay in Bilbao for a long time," he proclaims. They are not words for the gallery, to offer to see if it sneaks in, they are sincere, of a type who enjoys this period of Biscay.

The French guard comes out of an injury and confesses to being one hundred percent. His return to Andorra was a blessing because all the point guards were injured. Hakanson still has a couple of weeks to go and the young Betolaza suffered a sprained ankle in the Champions League against Brose. The last play in Andorra, with ten seconds to develop and two points down, had his stamp but it went wrong. It took a long time to pass Jenkins and he did not give it to him in conditions. "We did not pass the ball as we wanted, it could have been done better, it was not difficult to have a good shot to win. The idea was to look for a triple for the victory, after Hannah's free throw failure, the initial plan was that, but it went wrong, "Rousselle crumbles.

Injuries are being a plague this year, but the RETAbet game director assumes that "these are things that can happen" and "solutions must be found". As captain he knows that he must be the one to lead this attempt to get out of the well, since they are in decline tied with Betis and Gipuzkoa. "It is one of my missions, I have a responsibility to be an example every day, to speak, to communicate ... it is important at this time." He understands that it is not easy for newcomers, since the team is in great need of triumphs: "We are not in the best moment, that is evident, we are not a team with too much talent and we need everyone one hundred percent" .

Finally, with a certain mischievous smile, he scores the situation of the group at the beginning of the matches with a ten, although then the confidence goes down the note. As they are so hungry for joy, Europe is still on their mind, to be able to smooth the -9 average against Pinar in Karsiyaka "although the most important thing is the League" .
