A great number of fans stayed after the game in the Gran Canaria Arena to paid tribute to the historical center.
The history of Club Baloncesto Gran Canaria is incomprehensible without Sitapha Savané. The Senegalese center played for nine seasons, between 2004 and 2012 and the last one in 2016, where the team finished second in the Spanish Cup of Coruña.
“All the people knows what I feel for this Island, this Club and all of you. The Island of Gran Canaria and ‘Granca’ will be part of me and my family forever”, said Savané to the fans.
