Mateo Drežnjak četiri sezone u Ciboni

Cibona potpisala je četverogodišnji ugovor s 21-godišnjim reprezentativcem Hrvatske Mateom Drežnjakom.

Najspominjanije ime prijelaznog roka u Zagrebu tako će uz Tonija Nakića i Roka Prkačina činiti okosnicu nove Cibone. Ekipa se gradi na mladim i perspektivnim igračima koji će klub nositi na duge staze, a s kojima će se i navijači moći poistovjetiti. U klubu vjeruju, da je upravo ovaj trio najbolja pozivnica za svakog ljubitelja Cibone.

Drežnjak je u prošloj sezoni igrajući za Široki, u kojem je ponikao, u prosjeku bilježio 15,1 poena, 3 skoka, 4,2 dodavanja i 1,5 ukradene lopte za prosječno 33 minuta provedenih na parketu.

Mateo Drežnjak je nakon dogovora s Cibonom izjavio: “Jako sam sretan zbog prelaska u Cibonu. To je jedan novi iskorak za mene, idem na viši rang i jače natjecanje. Nadam se da ću radom i zalaganjem opravdati povjerenje na terenu. Poznajem dosta igrača, kako iz reprezentacije tako i iz međusobnih ogleda. Volio bi da nas navijači podrže u svemu ovome.“
