New head coach of Minaya Zeljko Ljubenovic spoke about his first impressions of working with the team and shared his expectations from the UPL 15th round match against Krivbass.
– How did you see “Minai”? What kind of team is this for you personally?
– Of course, my first acquaintance with the team took place through YouTube, where I watched the team’s matches in the UPL. But when I saw the guys in person, I was convinced that this is a good team and these players have the talent and data to continue to progress and become better. “Minaya” definitely has a future.
– What conclusions did you draw for yourself based on the results of the bilateral match?
– The two-way communication helped to form a complete picture. Of course, it didn’t exist before. Now it will be much easier for me to prepare the team for the 15th round game against Krivbass on Saturday.
– Do football players feel a psychological decline due to the results?
– I try through training and communication to make sure that there is no tension. Based on what I see, I believe that I have already achieved this. Players don’t have that burden. The guys really had to get rid of this pressure from the unsuccessful series.
– During our first conversation, you noted that the adrenaline was off the charts. Now that his UPL debut as a coach is approaching, does his level continue to rise?
– On the contrary, I calmed down. With the start of the first training session. Although I expect that on the day of the match the adrenaline will increase again. Still, this is a special game for me personally for two reasons. Firstly, the debut match as the head coach of Minaya. Secondly, everyone knows who exactly coaches Krivbass. For me this is a truly important match. I am very glad that I will see Yuri Nikolaevich and his entire coaching staff again. We keep in touch, so I will be happy about this meeting. But I hope that after the match is over I will be happy.
Now the Transcarpathian team is the worst in the UPL in terms of points scored. They have only 6 points in 14 championship matches.
