Center Marc Gasol is already registered as a Bàsquet Girona player in the Endesa League and will be able to play Wednesday's duel against Real Madrid, according to the Catalan club on Monday night.
"Marc Gasol's return to the ACB is now a reality. The center has been enrolled in the squad led by Aíto García Reneses and will experience a historic debut this Wednesday in Fontajau," the club wrote in a statement last night. .
Gasol, president of Girona, will play again in the highest category of Spanish basketball 14 years later. He will do it hand in hand with the club that he himself created in 2014 and in the city that he already saw him play from 2006 to 2008, with the late Akasvayu.
The 37-year-old player joined the ranks of Girona in December last year when the team played for the LEB Oro and was decisive for the club to win the first promotion to the ACB in its history. He will now lead Aíto García Reneses' team, which will debut in the elite this Wednesday with a visit from Madrid.
The first stop on the route will be against Real Madrid Basketball, at 9:00 p.m. in a Fontajau Pavilion that has already sold out all its seats.
With Gasol, the veteran coach from Madrid has twelve names on the squad: point guards Quino Colom, Josep Franch and Pol Figueras, shooting guards Kameron Taylor, Maxi Fjellerup and Ondrej Hanzlik, forward Pato Garino, power forwards Èric Vila and Roko Prkacin and centers Marc Gasol, Dusan Miletic and Jaume Sorolla.
