Shane Larkin to Sportal.bg: We must limit Vezenkov

“As you said, starting the tournament with a win was very important. We came out victorious on the day we played poorly. All kinds of surprises are possible at this tournament. Yesterday evening Belgium beat the hosts from Georgia, in the other group Germany beat one of the big favorites France. Starting with a win and confidence is very important. Today we analyzed the mistakes we made in yesterday’s game. Our expectations are high and we need to keep inaccuracies to a minimum. Of course, my wish is to see a good game from the team. On the first day of the tournament, it is possible that there was tension and the concentration was not at the level. The atmosphere here is very bad. There is no audience at our matches and it is hard to get used to that.

On paper, Bulgaria is the weakest team in the group, but we have to approach this match as if we are facing the best such team. We know Vezenkov, he is a great player. This year he was in the Perfect Five of the Euroleague. Dee Bost had a great season in Galatasaray. These are the two most important players of the Bulgarian team. And the other competitors are not to be underestimated, they have good shooting from the three. The match will be very important and we will want to win”, said Ataman.
