Romain Sato celebrates 200 games as Taronja, “it's an honor, I'm very grateful”


Only 12 players in the history of Valencia Basket have been able to wear our jersey in 200 official matches. The list was expanded last Tuesday Romain Sato, who in his fourth year in the club continues to write his name in important letters.


Romain Sato is “very happy to be part of a club like Valencia Basket, playing 200 games with the same team is great, it's an honor, I'm very grateful.”


With 200 games as a taronja, Sato already sees Sergio Coterón as the 11th player with more games with 210, in a ranking in where Dubljevic and Rafa continue to add numbers.


Romain Sato has been changing his role within the team gradually in these 4 seasons, “I do not specifically care about my performance, my goals are what the team has. I try to bring energy, defense and everything the coach needs and help my teammates in every possible way to win the games. It's what I've been doing for the rest of my career. Work day by day and try to push the team and the mates. Everyone here aspires to be better every day and to keep taking steps forward, so this is the common goal”.


Valencia Basket continues to take steps in the Eurocup, but with caution, as Romain says, “we know what happened to us last year, not that we want to think about it right now, in fact we want to leave it already in the past, since this Is a new season. I think we are focused on how to play, I think the coaches are doing a great job in preparing the games, also in the adjustments that are making the matches. Last year what happened in Eurocup was a sad thing and this year we are focused on continuing to pass rounds. We are different from last year and we do not want what happened last year to be repeated”. "


For Romain, the line is good “matches like Tuesday show that we are on a good level, it is a game in which we had ups and downs but in which the preparation with which we face, the energy we had, the way in That we gave everything, the push, made us move forward. We are 12 players and here anyone can play, we all contribute energy, fight, we do long rotations and we all stay in good shape to help”.
