Guillaume Gille: “We want to be surprised by AccorHotels Arena”


10 January 2017

Guillaume Gille, co-head coach of the French team: “These last weeks have passed by at a very sustained pace. It was particularly intense for us, head coaches, but the time required it. We had to come up with the list, but also talk to the players — especially the ones that are not on the final list — to explain our choices. This preparation phase was a good achievement, we laid the foundation stones of what we are going to build. One day before the opening game, there is, of course, a little bit of tension; we’re excited to play at home. We want to be here, we want to be surprised by AccorHotels Arena. We are going to do everything to put everyone on court in the best condition.”
