Jérémy, how does it feel to be back home?
It’s super cool. We are really happy to return to where it all started (note: trained at Bernex Basket, the 170 cm distributor already played with Lions between 2010 and 2016) and to be close to the family again, after having lived wonderful things in Friborg.
When you say “we”, do you mean your family?
Yes, my wife and two children.
Would you have signed to the Lions if Andrej Stimac had not been appointed coach?
Yes, because the contacts with the club management started before his engagement (note: April 16). The presence of Stimac helped, but we imagined coming even without him.
Did the financial aspect weigh in your decision?
No, the FR Olympic offer was equivalent. The choice was made from a global, sporting and family point of view.
Basically, why leave the best team in the country?
It is true that in Friborg, I could continue to compete in the European Cup and evolve within the best team in the championship. But joining the Lions allows me to return to my home township and hopefully help the club reclaim the title and play Europe. And then I have a carpentry business with my father in Geneva. The idea is to take it back with my brother (note: they both have a CFC carpenter) the day I stop basketball.
You will therefore end your career in Geneva.
Yes, that’s the goal.
