“There will be a lot of competition in our position, but the most important thing is that we get along,” said the player, who was born in Moron (Argentina) 31 years ago.
The goalkeeper, who has not yet appeared in the ranks of the Blaugrana, although he is expected to do so tomorrow in a friendly match in Encamp against the French Limoges, also explained his feelings in a new project he faces after two seasons with Real Madrid. “I enjoy a lot and am very excited. Getting to know new people, their respective names and plays. Either way, I am very happy and very satisfied.”
Nico Laprovittola, who also played for ACB in Baskonia and Juventut Badalona, is ambitious for this new season. “We are here to do great things. They received me very well and I want to get into the team dynamics now. I came to Barcelona at a good time at the club.”
The conductor of Argentina’s international orchestra spoke about his new coach: Saronas Gacevicius. The Lithuanian coach also held the same position as the Argentina goalkeeper. “I have always seen Saras with the Lithuanian national team and playing against Argentina. He has always caught my attention because of the way he plays. As a coach, he lives matches full of adrenaline and energy.”
Laprovittola is clear about the objective of this new project, which began Thursday in a friendly match against MoraBanc in Encamp, with the Blaugrana winning and without the participation of him or Alex Abrenz. “Teams like Barcelona want to be European champions and are not satisfied with finishing in other positions. I also want to live it. We are clear that everyone will want to win us, but we have to be firm. The important thing is that he will be able to try,” said Nico Laprovittola. His first appearance as a Blaugrana in Andorran territory tomorrow in a friendly match against Limoges, which he lost this morning to Morabank, “The team wins matches and feels comfortable on the track”.
