PRESS CONFERENCE AFTER THE MATCH AGAINST HC PPD ZAGREB
The regular press conference was held right after the match HC Metalurg – HC PPD Zagreb.
Veselin Vujovic: “In just three days we have played two matches in which the final score was uncertain until the very end. Today we have been better in the first period, and HC Metalurg in the second one. They showed an incredible fighting spirit, but HC PPD Zagreb showed that was better. Now we must focus on our duties in the Velux EHF Champions League. We have many other things to worry about.”
Leon Susnja: “The defense was up to the task in the first half and we scored some easy goals. But then, we lost our concentration and HC Metalurg used this to get back in the game. However, the most important thing is that we won.”
Lino Cervar: “I congratulate HC PPD Zagreb for the victory. Undoubtedly, they were better on this match. I wish them a lot of luck in the Velux EHF Champions League on the match against KIF Kolding which was our opponent last year, and I hope that they will win. My boys did not have an easy task in playing twice against an opponent like HC PPD Zagreb in just three days. That is too much. I hope that we have learned a lot, but there are still problems that we must work on. We have few matches left in the SEHA-league, and then we will start preparing for the Macedonian championship. All in all, I am satisfied with the match.”
Borjan Madzovski: “We played poorly in the first half and made a lot of technical errors. The defense lacked the fighting spirit from the first match. In the second half, we strengthened our defense line and were more efficient in the attacks, but did not make it at the end.”
