"Coach Pascual enjoys an attacking game with a lot of movement. He wants to read every weakness of the opponents and change the style of attacks with his many plays, in order to punish their weaknesses, his team is always playing an attractive and interesting basketball. About defense, he is trying again to change his style, to stop the heavy artillery of his opponents, so he will be always taking advantage and not allowing these players score many points against him.
He is definitely a demanding coach in trainings, he is working hard and wants from his players to do the same. He is asking them for energy, passion, not making mistakes in training in order to avoid them during games. He is a real winner, always aiming for the victory in Euroleague and domestic competitions. Personal cooperation with him is always excellent, because he will speak with you and explain clearly what he expects from every athlete separately.
You just have to be ready to do that, as I said before he is a real winner, always aiming for the victory. He will speak with you outside the court, make you realize what he wants from you. He is a really demanding coach and also an excellent professional. Preparing the game with him was something different, there was always video analysis for the previous and next clash. Through that, you will see and learn from your mistakes, with every detail during training.
We used to be watching four or five times the defensive and attacking plays of the opponents, because he believes that video analysis is a very important part of modern basketball. We watched so many matches in video with him. He was at Barcelona Lassa for over a decade, as assistant and head coach. His relationship with all the players was splendid, he is a famous coach in european basketball and can deal with every athlete separately because of that.
He has worked with the best players in Europe with great success, so he will have no trouble dealing with anybody, no matter what his name is. He has actually many plays for the attacking systems, different ones with changes for every game. He can start a match with a play designed just before it, he is very clever and can create a different attacking play for every defense. That makes him so special", said the 21-year-old international about Xavi Pascual at SDNA.
