"I am very happy, very special congratulations to my players, who did a tremendous job, playing seven games in 15 days, always on guard and without the home-court advantage. I am very thankful to all of my staff and the physical trainers who allowed us to get here in the right condition. This is the third European final for this club and wanted to offer it to them. Congratulations to our fans. Malaga has shown it deserves to be at the highest level in Europe. The atmosphere was spectacular, we had 11,000 fans in the stands. That summarizes the good job we did. We had to be able to get this, but are not happy with it. We will fight, with our without the home-court advantage. We have been playing well for a long time, but have to forget what we did and think about the next game. I don't think we are favorites, not having the home-court advantage is always difficult. We have to keep our feet on the ground. I don't have kids, but each EuroCup finals I played is like having one. I am under contract for another season and it was the only place in which I could have left without playing a final. I understand that this team has added pressure and is very demanding, but this is the least I could offer. We will play a European final. We deserve it, both the club and the city."
