ANDl Lenovo Tenerife and Txus Vidorreta will continue hand in hand until the end of the 2023-24 season, after sealing an agreement to extend the relationship that united them for one more campaign until the end of the 2022-23 academic year.
The coach acknowledges that he is “very happy with the confidence that the club continues to show in our work”. “The complicity that has existed since my arrival is maintained. That when I still had a year left on my contract, the club proposed an extension to me months ago is an example of that,” he explains.
“I am very happy because we are going to be able to work for two more seasons with a block that works, in an ascending line of work, and with a good connection, which is key to being successful,” commented the head of the Canary Islands bench.
“The balance is extraordinary. I have been able to participate in three of the four titles in recent years, we have played in the semifinals of the Cup and the ACB, we have participated in the Super Cup by sporting right, so the balance is fantastic”, he assures.
The aurinegro coach has emphasized how satisfied he is working at the canarista club and the teamwork that has always marked his relationship with the entity. “Confidence has still increased even since my return,” he said.
“I think we make a great team, both the Board of Directors, as well as Aniano from the Management and Sporting Directorate, my assistants, players and Club employees. I think we are on a good line that goes with my idea of ??teamwork and group. And that is what has made us have good results and success in recent seasons” he confessed.
Asked about the immediate future of the team, Txus made reference to the fact that “the line is the right one, the team is ready for a while; this group of players is very committed and has enough quality to continue fighting alongside the best”.
“In addition,” he added, “we will logically try to give it the necessary touch-ups, but we are on a good line and when things work you have to consider what you can improve, but not big changes. And, in this sense, that is the goal for the next few weeks,” he said.
