Jasikevicius: "Pau is looking for a private flight to come"

The Lithuanian coach of Barça speaks after the victory against Joventut in Badalona about the arrival of the power forward, signed last Tuesday.


Sarunas Jasikevicius, Barcelona coach, spoke to Movistar + microphones after the resounding victory against Joventut. Among the questions, of course, Pau Gasol. His signing, the great signing of the Endesa League of the season (and in recent years), was announced last Tuesday ... but the Spanish international has not yet landed in Barcelona to work with the rest of his new teammates.

"Pau is looking for a private flight to come. Hopefully he finds him," Saras said humorously about his next arrival: "I hope he is with us soon," she continued.

Gasol has been off the court since March 2019, when he suffered a torn scaphoid in his left foot, an area in which he suffered discomfort while he was part of the Milwaukee Bucks. Since that month, nothing. Zero. Water. A whole recovery process that was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, with his eyes fixed on the Olympic Games in Tokyo this coming summer, the oldest of the Gasols, two-time NBA champion, returns home to pick up the pace of competition and thus be able to be part of Sergio Scariolo's National Team .

Press conference

Valuation of the match. "We came out super motivated and super serious, and we knew how to take advantage of Joventut's weak points," said the coach who described the attitude of the team to resolve the fast game as "very important considering that we played in Athens on Tuesday" .

Jasikevicius appreciated the work of the youngsters that allowed their starters to "dose" and was hopeful that the team will go to the Greek capital to face Panathinaikos "with the same mentality" .
