After the injury to John DiBartolomeno, Maccabi Tel Aviv Frederic Bourdillon signed until the end of the season. Maccabi has yet to finish the season in the Israeli league and therefore the gap that DiBartolomeo had left had to be closed.
“After the injury to John Dibartolomeo, we decided to bring a good player to give us quality. A player who has the character to fight for the goals of Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv, ”said coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. “I would like to add that we are all with John, we all love him and want him to come back stronger than ever.”
Frederic Bourdillon was born to a Jewish family in France. The player expressed his enthusiasm for Maccabi.
“Playing for Israel and Maccabi is the greatest achievement for a Jewish Frenchman. The greatest thing you can dream of. I want to help the team win the championship. We won’t let anyone get away from it. I know the Maccabi fans “Basketball is everything for them and we will win every game for them the way they are with us in the gym. I really hope they can be with us during the playoffs.”
