As the tip-off for the new Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season gets ever closer, Real Madrid was the last team to hold its preseason Media Day at the club’s training facility on Thursday.

The Spanish giant has reinforced its roster this season, and new faces such as Guerschon Yabusele, Adam Hanga and Nigel Williams-Goss – who was also celebrating his 27th birthday – were among the most in-demand players in front of the cameras.

Pablo Laso is heading into his 11th season as Real coach, and he was happy to share his thoughts on the challenges lying in wait along with established title-winning veterans such as Sergio Llull, Rudy Fernandez and Fabien Causeur.

Euroleague Basketball’s Spanish broadcast partner DAZN was also in attendance on a busy day in Valdebebas, completing one of the final steps of preparation ahead of Real’s mouthwatering season opener at home to reigning champ Anadolu Efes Istanbul on Thursday 30 September.
