Last Wednesday’s announcement, explaining that Citylift Elevators would cease to be a major sponsor of Uni and that, as a result, next season’s budget would go down, caused more than one to predict a short-term future. darker than not clear for the Girona team. He already warned his president, Cayetano Pérez, that the loss of one of the patrons did not mean, by far, the decline of ambition in Fontajau. It took only one day for the entity to move tab. Yesterday in the early hours transcended the first new face of the staff for next year. A familiar face with a recent past. It is written by Julia Reisingerova. At the age of 22, he returned to Girona to be “a key part of our inner game”, as Pere Puig, the sporting director, was quick to explain.
He himself was firmly committed to it in the summer of 2018, when he decided to take it to increase the team’s arguments in painting. Her numbers in Sant Adrià and being considered one of the most promising young women in Europe were the arguments. The bet, perhaps risky, would end up going well. That season Uni would win the Women’s League and Reisingerova became the most valuable player (MVP) of that final. By different circumstances the paths of one and the other parted. The pivot packed her bags to go to Valencia and it didn’t take long for Puig to try to convince her that the best thing she could do was come back. “Since he left we have been trying to take steps forward for him to come back. We have achieved this and we are very happy “, he said.
It’s been a while, but Reisingerova has progressed. “He comes back different from when he came two seasons ago. She is now an established player, with a lot of baggage despite her youth. It is not necessary to present it because we all know it. She is very dominant in painting and also has a good exterior shot. It still has room for improvement and comes to be a key piece. There is still work to be done and the movements in the staff are just beginning, but for Puig “we are starting to put a good pass to the next project for next year”. This league, unable to finish due to the coronavirus crisis, Reisingerova has worn the Valencia shirt. There he scored 9.7 points per game, averaging 3.8 rebounds and 56.8 percent field goal accuracy.
