Paco Olmos is the first coach of the Breogán River, the revelation team of the current Endesa League. The people of Lugo have won five games in ten games. They have two games postponed: against Joventut in Lugo and in Bilbao against Bilbao Basket. The people of Lugo only lost at home against Real Madrid.

Breogán has not played since November 14 in Manresa, a date that “is already a long way off”, as Olmos stated in “We like basketball” from Radio Marca. “It worries and, above all, it generates a bit of uncertainty until we return to compete,” explained the Breoganista coach.

Paco Olmos highlighted that his Breogán “is hungry”, while praising “the excellent work” of the team. “I am very happy every day that I train these players”, he summed up, not without first being cautious: “satisfied, but with his feet on the ground.” And he repeats the phrase he has expressed since he arrived in Lugo in August: “We know that every day is a final”, because “each game is the last” in a context where “those below have strengthened a lot and have begun to add “.

He mentioned the two keys to the success of the Lugo team: “defensive effort and dynamism in attack.” In addition, he highlighted the importance of the fans that fill the Pazo in each game and that traveled with 500 Breoganistas to the finally postponed game in Bilbao: “We have an impact from the fans that the elite athlete appreciates.”

Olmos also spoke about his future in case of achieving the “dream” of permanence: “I hope we can achieve the feat and, from there, I always say that when two parties are well the marriage continues.”

The guard Álex Urtasun began training with Breogán this week. A player with 14 seasons of experience in ACB. Olmos replied that his idea is to “help them until the Christmas game marathon” because, “in principle, he only comes to train” and “no change has been thought at any time” in the squad, which already has twelve chips plus Lugo center Seydou Aboubacar, who is recovering from an operation in the summer.

Paco Olmos defined the importance of the people of Lugo Érik and Sergi Quintela as “the heart, the lion of this team”. “The commitment is total every day, that the group is well, that the group is united, in helping the new ones to know the idiosyncrasy of Lugo,” he explained. The Breoganista coach commented that the Quintela brothers “know that as long as Lugo is in ACB they have great possibilities of being part of it.” “They are our two flags of character,” he summed up. On the other hand, he opined about Rasid Mahalbasic: “He is our oldest player, he has been in a thousand battles, our leader in silence, he is the captain incognito, as he says.” Olmos has revealed that the former Betis pivot “recognizes that it is his last chance to be in ACB”.

Finally, he praised the sporting offer of the city of Lugo with Río Breogán and Durán Maquinaria Ensino in Liga Endesa, Club Deportivo Lugo in its tenth consecutive season in Segunda, a men’s and women’s volleyball team in the highest category, as well as two teams of futsal in the capital. “Lugo has the merit of the first leagues to recognize it in a city with less than one hundred thousand inhabitants,” he declared, as well as underlining that “Lugo is a sport and that makes the fans very demanding, but very dedicated.”
