The 61-year-old Italian specialist gave an official statement to AS.com.

"I don't know where certain rumors come from. I don't usually comment on them, but maybe it's worth clarifying that my contract with Virtus explicitly allows me to participate in the National Team Windows.

My deal with the Spanish Basketball Federation runs until the end of the 2024 Olympic Games. I find it extremely offensive to doubt about credibility and seriousness of my directors as if they can consider anything other than complying with the letter of the contract.

With good logistical work and calendar harmonization, we can do exactly what Igor Kokoskov did for two years at Fenerbahce. That could limit the coincidence of my presence in the club and the national team to the maximum," Sergio Scariolo stated.
