On the occasion of the arrival ofAmara Sy with a Paris Basketball this Saturday evening, Gaëtan Muller, ASVEL’s vice-president, phoned “L’Amiral” in central Astroballe to tell him his jersey would retire. So his name will float forever along with two other club stories, the n ° 4 story Alain Gilles and Delaney Rudd.
“I did not expect it at all,” he told them Development. “It was a unique, emotionally charged evening. I really had to send a cry to make it cry, but then I burst into tears! Thinking about my jersey next to those of Alain Gilles and Delaney Rudd is amazing, I who didn’t even know where Villeurbanne and Lyon were when I arrived, hopefully, 16 o’clock! I will always thank Gaëtan and Tony Parker for giving me one of the greatest gifts of my life. “
Amara Sy started her career at ASVEL in the early 2000s before returning three times. He won the French championship titles in 2002 and 2009. Although he planned to retire as a paid player at the end of the 2021-2022 season, the president of the Spartans of Cergy-Pontoise (NM1) will therefore receive the first prize. respect from one of his former clubs. The first of a long series?
