Doubts surrounding Jan Vesely’s fitness going into the Euroleague Final Four were quickly evaporated when he returned to league action for Fenerbahce two weeks ago.

Now that Vesely is back, the Czech Republic big man, who picked up an All-Euroleague First Team spot wants the Euroleague title in his hands come Sunday night.

“It’s nice to get the award I take but the biggest thing is to win the trophy,” Vesely said. “That’s the goal of the team. My injury is gone. All the Fenerbahce fans have been supporting us through the season. I am glad to see them here in Berlin.”

Fenerbahce are rumoured to be bringing nearly 9,000 supporters to the German capital this weekend and the majority of those fans are already in Berlin making their presence felt, including at the opening press conference at the Alexanderplatz.

Fenerbahce face Laboral Kutxa in the second semi-final on Friday night.
