Great sport of a small country

Great sport of a small country - Sergey Dyadechko
- Last time we talked to you at the end of last season, which was super successful for the team - debut year in the elite French division gave you Leaders Cup - a trophy, played out among the eight strongest clubs in France, and with it a ticket to the Champions League.
You're right, last year's success has allowed us to make debut on the international stage, and up to now our premiere season in the Champions League develops quite successfully, now we are heading the standings in our group and we have the chance to reach the next stage (the conversation took place on November 26 - ed.. ).. By the way, the opponents a very serious - Banvit from Turkey leads the championship, which is one of the richest and most powerful championships on the continent. Skyliners Frankfurt is the reigning champion FIBA ​​Europe Cup - the tournament, which became the legal predecessor of the Champions League; Nymburk is unbeaten in the Czech championship. In short, right now our fans have the opportunity to see top-class basketball.
- How are things going in the domestic league?
We solely leading the tournament race, being the most productive of the championship teams. But our main weapon - a protection; we miss the less score of all 18 Championship clubs. Although it is too early to draw any global conclusions, because the fate of the championship will be decided only in May-June, when the matches will start the playoffs. Now the game schedule is very busy - the team spends two or three matches per week, which greatly increases the risk of injury. So, for example, in November we have lost for a long time the two players from starting five - Jamal Shuler and Brandon Davies. It is possible to follow the success of the team not only from the stands Salle Gaston Médecin, but increasingly from television screens. Absolutely all the visiting and home matches of the Champions League live broadcasts Canal + Sport, while the majority of the matches of the championship of France shows the SFR Sport. The merit for this belongs not only to the team but also to the Government of the Principality of Monaco, which made a major renovation of the hall last summer. Playground acquired a dominant red color, which looks very impressive on the television picture. The updated sound and lighting support helps to create a great atmosphere in the hall itself. Special thanks should be said to our fans - whether on our matches will be empty stands, we would not be interesting for television, but our games regularly gather full houses, and the audience very strongly supports team!
- As far as we know, cooperation with the Government of the Principality is not limited by only the reconstruction.
You're right, in the framework of the agreement signed June 21, 2016 during a reception at the residence of the Minister of State Mr. Serge Telle, the government has also gave a club weighty financial assistance, which enabled a more qualitative selection of the composition and possibility to sign top players.
- It was rumored that in one of your beginners is very interested the grand European basketball - Spanish Barcelona. Is it true?
Indeed, representatives of "Barcelona" had appealed to us, offering to buy out the contract of playmaker Dee Bost. But we have denied them, despite the fantastic even by the standards of a European basketball amount of compensation offered. We believe that finding an adequate substitute of Bost at the moment is simply impossible, and our main goal - not money, but the fight for the title.
-Interesting your principled position. Good luck and new victories!
