Henry talks about the goals he wants to achieve with Fenerbahçe
Fenerbahçe just signed Pierria Henry to the squad as a new cog in the system. He talked about the goals he wants to achieve with his new team and what led to his decision to sign with the Turkish giants.
When he was making his decision, Henry always thought about what would happen for him and his family. Signing for Fene was the most comfortable option to take because he can play his signature brand of basketball with the team. Playing with Achille Polonara is also a big reason for him since they were teammates over the past three years at Baskonia.
Henry admitted that Polonara had an impact on his decision to move to Turkey. He said, ‘He convinced me. He didn’t actually say much. He didn’t actually say what he was going to do, but I know my brother. I understand when I see something in your eyes. I understood then. I called him while weighing my options. He told me the situation. I said I would follow him’.
Henry will now play a big role in one of the best clubs in Europe. He will form a backcourt with Nando De Colo who is known as one of the best point guards in the EuroLeague. Henry has shown his appreciation for the Spanish legend because he has always looked up to the floor general.
Now that they’re with Fene, everyone is focused on playing basketball and succeeding. With a team of Fene's size, you can expect that Henry and the rest of the squad will look to compete for trophies.
Henry said, ‘Our goal is clear: to win championships, championships and titles. Nothing less. It’s the one thing we work for, every day, every step of the way. We will go better. We will do our best to achieve these goals. The championship is the only result we can accept. This is the only result we will be satisfied with’.
It will be amazing to see this Fene squad in action because they have one of the most talented lineups in Europe. With the likes of Henry, Polonara, and De Colo, this team is stacked and ready to win.
