One of the great figures of Chilean basketball, Nicolás Carvacho, made a great leap in his career after signing for S.Oliver Baskets Wuerzburg from Germany, one of the strongest leagues in Europe.

“I am very excited to start this new journey in my career.. It is a great league, one of the top in the world. I am focused on becoming more demanding, on being available to grow there, represent Chile and continue to improve as a player and as a person. And help Chile to achieve high goals ”, assured Carvacho.
During the concentration in Santiago, he was able to find out the level of German basketball with one who already plays there: Sebastián Herrera, who plays for Oldenburg.
“I spoke to Seba a few days ago, because I was talking to a couple of teams in the German league, and then this club decided to make me an offer. So I told him that I had signed, that I was happy, and that we would play together there in the same country, being in the same league. But yeah, I’m very excited about this, of course. I would love to continue with the successes, as it has already been in Bulgaria. That is my goal and for that I am going to work ”, said the national team.
