Real Madrid Basketball team have announced the signing of African star Salah Mejri. The Tunisian star returned to the European champions after leaving the club in 2015 for Dallas Mavericks.
The club released an official statement on their website to announce the deal.
“Real Madrid C. F. has reached an agreement with Liaoning Flying Leopards center, Salah Mejri. The deal ties the player to the club until the end of the current season,” the club stated.
“Salah Mejri (15 June 1986, Jendouba, Tunisia) is back at Real Madrid, where he previously spent a spell between 2013 and 2015 before making the move to the NBA, where he turned out for the Dallas Mavericks. The Tunisian, who measures in at 2.17 m, will strengthen the madridistas’ inside play and will complement Tavares in the aerial game.
“The centre is well used to Pablo Laso’s team’s playing style, the ACB and the EuroLeague, where he gained masses of experience during his previous stint at Real Madrid. Mejdri lifted the Copa del Rey and the Super Cup in the 2013/14 season and played his part in an historic 2014/15 campaign, in which the team captured four pieces of silverware: the EuroLeague, the league, the Copa del Rey and the Super Cup.
