Marc Gasol, first player-president in the history of the ACB
The League Assembly unanimously approved that he can reconcile his positions, although the pivot still does not appear anywhere on the Endesa League website
The 22-23 season of the Endesa League will bring the premiere of the figure of player-president . The protagonist will be Marc Gasol . The pivot will play the matches with Basquet Girona while remaining the main person in charge of the club , an unusual event in the history of the competition.
Marc will be able to reconcile the two positions after it was unanimously approved in the ACB Assembly this September that he could do so . Until then there was a rule that prevented it. What he will not be able to do is act as a representative of the club in the Assemblies , where sometimes matters that have to do with the players are discussed, such as collective agreements. There duality would be impossible.
Despite the fact that the center will be able to play, a little more than 48 hours before the start of the 22-23 season in the Endesa League, there is no news of him on the official website of the ACB . His name does not appear in the market table , nor in the Girona squad , nor in the traditional Supermanager game , nor is he seen in the official photos . And that the best game of the first day and with which the competition is uncorked measures his team with Real Madrid , current champion.
Everything indicates that Marc will appear in the next few hours, as he will be discharged by the club he presides over. He has done the preseason with the team, has participated in friendlies and recently played in the Lliga Catalana . One of the great stars of the 22-23 season in the Endesa League is expected on the web and, above all, on the track.
