COACH QUOTES


Quotes Wisla Can-Pack vs. ZVVZ Prague

WISLA CAN-PACK COACH TOMASZ HERKT:

"I am happy that we won that game but I am not happy with the style. The game was very good for the spectators but we made too many simple errors and the result was open to the last second of the game. We have to work hard to improove our style."


ZVVZ USK PRAHA COACH LUBOR BLAZEK:

"Congartulations to the home Team. We were close to winning the game but we made a lot of errors and that's why we lost. I think the show was very good for the spectators. In the next games we will have to avoid such mistakes."
