Del Pero: ‘Virtus an important turning point in my career. I want to improve every day’

Bologna, 23 September –


Beatrice Del Pero spoke for the first time to the microphones of Virtus TV:

“Coming to a team of this level is certainly a great satisfaction for me. It’s a very important turning point in my career because Virtus is a club that in recent years is showing that it wants to do well.
In general I define myself as an offensive player. However, I’m trying to improve under the aspect of physicality and defence, an aspect that I learned to implement by participating in the cups and the Euroleague. These aspects are very important in these competitions and I want to improve within my personal baggage. On the offensive side, on the other hand, I really like passing the ball and involving my teammates.
National team? It’s a wonderful thing to wear the national team jersey and sometimes, we who play there, don’t realise how lucky we are. This year I also started the 3×3 route with the Italian national team, which was a lot of fun: in the future I hope to wear the national team jersey a lot more because it is the goal of all players. I’m very outgoing, I talk to everyone and I like being in company. Coming here and finding girls I already knew helped me in my integration, but not so much because the girls are fantastic and we are already a very united group. They made me feel at home straight away.”
