Rafa Martínez and Will Thomas toast for their resigning with the sponsorship of Bodegas El Villar


Captain Rafa Martinez and power forward Will Thomas have celebrated their respective renewals for one more season with Valencia Basket in an event that took place this morning in the VIP Area of the Fonteta and that has had the sponsorship of Bodegas El Villar. Rafa Martínez, captain of the men's team the last seven seasons and the only player in the history of the entity who has won four titles with Valencia Basket, will start his eleventh season as a taronja player. On the other hand, Will Thomas (winner of the Endesa League 2017 and the Endesa Supercopa 2017) will begin his third season at the Club next year.


Captain Rafa Martínez wanted to "first of all say thank you to Vicente for his words. I am very happy to be here another year, it is my house, I feel very identified here. To thank for the trust received in a moment as complicated as this with injuries. To the Club, to Paco, to all those who form the Club because it was not an easy decision. Year with challenges, like the knee, to play again and surely I will get it with the help of the team and the club”.


On the other hand, power forward Will Thomas thanked the Club "for bringing me back. I wanted to play here, and yes, it has been a very long summer with a negotiation in between, but it was possible to reach an agreement and I am back"
