CERVAR: HC METALURG IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF GROWING UP. VUJOVIC: HC METALURG HAS A FUTURE
The regular press conference was held right after the match HC Metalurg – HC PPD Zagreb.
Veselin Vujovic: “I am glad that this evening there were a lot of people in the audience that showed that they love the club, despite the tough situation, and this gives hope that HC Metalurg has a future. It is hard to play in a situation when the result is not important. Today, my team did not play well; we had many technical errors and lost balls. When the result is not important, the young players are always more motivated. Congratulations for HC Metalurg for their feisty game.”
Lino Cervar: “I wish HC PPD Zagreb a lot of luck in the ongoing competition. Considering everything, they absolutely deserved the victory on today’s match, but their coach is right about the fact that our players were more motivated. This is a team of cadets and juniors, players who played against RK Radovis and RK Prilep until yesterday, and now they made a huge jump overnight and played against THW Kiel and HC PPD Zagreb. There are going to follow a lot of hard work and intense trainings in future, there will be many defeats and some victories. But with a lot of hard work and few reinforcements in the squad, this team again will be strong next autumn. I am especially glad that the audience is still here with us.”
Bojan Madzovski: “In some way, we fulfilled our aim which we had set before the match. We have shown what the young players should look like. The experience of HC PPD Zagreb decided for the match, we do not have anything to be sorry for and we should leave with our heads up high.”
