Panathinaikos forward committed his future to the club recently after signing a new deal until 2017 proving that he is one of the most valuable players the Greens have in their squad.
“Panathinaikos fans are the best in the world. They have given me tremendous power. We're playing for them. You can't lose with such great support. The team has got great pride having won the Euroleague six times in the past. I remained here because all I want is to win. I love Athens, I love my teammates, the fans and the whole club. I'm very happy here and I'll give my best to win more silverware. I'm very proud to be a member of this club,” Gist underlined in SportDay newspaper.
As for the victory over Real Madrid, Gist added: “The win over Real was very important. Not only for the points but it helped us a lot to boost our confidence. We didn't let them too much space. We've shown character and playing an aggressive defence we managed to block them. That's the way we have to play. We must keep going as we can achieve great things.”
