Just a rough translation from a Spanish article:
Google calls Manu "it". Cheers.
Manu Ginóbili finally makes his decision public: one lowers of the World Championships of Turkey. Reasons? The arrival of its twin ones plus the new contract with the Spurs. A good one: it wants to be in London 2012. And before in Preolímpico 2011.
'I can not remember how I said it. I think I called home. I actually called last ', Manu Ginobili has on its first time with the Argentina shirt for a South American Under-22 back in June 1996 when he played in Andino de La Rioja and still did not shine in the National League. Al bahiense quoted him as the best in her litter were in critical instances with their teams. And in the tournament in Vitoria (Brazil) was always alternate.
Today is another story. Shine in the NBA, broke records and set the rules, including the selection that gives so much pride. So, through his column in The Nation, made public his decision to get out of Turkey's World (starts August 28). Manu had earlier missed two minor tournaments, the Olympic qualifier in Las Vegas in 2007 and Premundial of Puerto Rico in 2009, but this does not mean his farewell to the national team. It said he wants to be in the 2012 London Games.
He also renewed his contract with Spurs until 2013: for his injuries at the 2002 World Games and the 2008 does not want to take risks. That was the explanation I gave Sergio Hernandez (Technical Team) and Vaccaro Germain (President of the Confederation) at the meeting in the U.S.. Ginobili is going to be a fan more when Scola, Nocioni, Oberto, Delfino and go Prigioni plate defend Turkey achieved by a layer of gold. It's like Leo Gutierrez said Ole, 'If we play Manu super candidates. And if you can not go, but we're going to look the other way, present a competitive team. "
