Dibartolomeo: “I hope to have some redemption this year”

Maccabi Tel Aviv captain John Dibartolomeo spoke to the press just ahead of the Israel League’s Championship game against Hapoel Holon on Thursday night (21:10) at the Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv:

“We’re preparing as best as we can for when they had Glen Rice Jr. and when they didn’t. We have to feel confident and a lot of it relies on us and how we approach the game and how intense we are from the beginning.”

Redemption:
“Every game you go into you want to win. It hurt losing the championship last year, obviously I hope to have some redemption this year, but it’s all about the team and Maccabi and getting to the place where we think we belong.”

Pressure to win the League title:
“There’s always pressure and as competitors we also come out to win. We can’t worry about outside noise or what other people think who should win. We have to come as best we can to win the game. That’s what we can control and that’s what we need to focus on.”
