Come to a press conference to express all his “pride” in front of this “benchmark victory (75-73) which validates [nos] choice and [notre] strategy ”, the deputy chairman of ASVEL, Gaëtan Muller, also expressed his disappointment at the absence of a TV broadcaster for the Betclic ELITE and the EuroLeague.
