Quotes Union Hainaut vs. UMMC Ekaterinburg


Laurent Buffard, UMMC coach:

"We knew that the home team would defend in zone. We were prepared but we had difficulties in the first-half to pass balls to our centers. Union played well, and had a good reaction after their four defeats."

Fabrice Courcier, Union Hainaut coach:

"We played well for 30 minutes, then their bench made the difference. We have two players injured and we had only nine players who could play. Moreover, UMMC is a very talented team. That's why we lost tonight. But we played better than in Valencia, and it was important because of our pride."
