"Sakota and his team are very important to me", the 28-year-old American says to SDNA. "I believe that AEK suit me, I realized it from the beginning. Aris is the team that eliminated us last season, while I was injured, so I want to face them. The injuries are not an excuse, we want to win and start the season right".
Gist has an excellent relationship with Sakota. "From the beginning he showed me that I could talk to him about anything. He approaches me with respect and that is also what I do. I believe his is a great coach".
