The pivot Vitalis Chikoko (JDA Dijon) commits to Strasbourg

He had caused them misery in the final of the Coupe de France, perhaps they wanted to avoid any further affront? After being named MVP of the Coupe de France and winning it with JDA Dijon against Strasbourg, Zimbabwean pivot Vitalis Chikoko (33 years old, 2.08 m) joins the Alsatians. The SIG announced this Friday morning the arrival of the pivot – who was until then loaned by Elan Béarnais to JDA Dijon – to expand its internal sector.

Chikoko thus finds a coach he knows well, Laurent Vila, who had supervised him at Pau-Lacq-Orthez during his first three seasons in the French Championship. “He is a player who is dominant in the paint, but who has also been able to expand his game. Today, he is still as effective under the circle to finish ‘low post’ or ‘high low’ situations ‘ that the collective can give, but he is also capable of playing the long and short roll by shooting from mid-distance, explains Vila. He has become a very good passer. He is a very complete player, who is vocal defensively and who reassures the group. He’s a good rebounder and I think with Brice Dessert they’re going to be a really nice interior pair. Whether humanly or sportingly, he is a very good recruit for us. »
