Official: Spanoulis to miss game vs Turkey (vid)

As the Greece National Team head coach, Andrea Trinchieri, confirmed himself, Vasilis Spanoulis will miss tomorrow’s game ahainst Turkey.

Andrea Trinchieri quotes about Spanoulis injury:

“Our medical staff, our physiotherapists  worked the whole, and when I say the whole night I don’t mean until 1 am but the whole night, to prevent the ankle to be swallen and they did an unbelievable job. […] It’s nothing serious, but I have a philosphy: I never force a player to play, because it’s something I don’t believe is effective, useful and respectful.

As a coach I have already had in mind Plan B, Plan C and the team is ready to give this effort to cover ther absense [I believe for not a long period] of our best player. Not only our best player, but also one of the best players of Eurobasket.

It’s a huge loss, but I never ever want to complain, because complaints bring negative energy.”
