Meshkov Brest — Telekom Veszprem. Press conference

David Davis

“We didn’t start the match as we liked it. The opponent had a good temp of attack, good defense, good goalkeepers playing at home. It was a good level, a high level. We made a lot of mistakes, the match was not as we liked it. Normally I don’t usually say this, but if this gonna be the level of referees decisions, then we’ll have a lot of problems because nobody will be happy at the end of the match. Not even one team, but another. Anyway, I’m happy because we won.”

Mate Lekai

“It was a derby, two of the best teams of the league playing each other. That’s always hard to play here, Brest is a very good team. It’s the beginning of the season, I think both teams can play better, it was a good fight, a hard fight. We’re happy, but as a coach said we have to improve, we have to play better, be smarter, be more disciplined, so we have to work at home. Champions League on Saturday, we have a hard match if we want to reach our goals, we should win it.”

Raul Alonso

“First of all congratulations on David and your team for a victory today. We knew that we are playing against one of the best team at the world, they have every position with a top player and we knew that we had to bring a higher level than in past weeks to be on the match, it was the target, to maintain this game open until the end. Actually, we did it, so we also had the chance to win it, I think that my players did a fantastic job, we had really tough weeks with everything that happens in preparation. We have to reorganize a team a little bit after injury, and for us, it was like a first big test to see what we are and we also at the beginning. Respect to them, playing against the Veszprem is always though, you playing an amazing handball last month, to be at the same level today was very satisfying for me. This the way we have to continue. If we can increase the level step by step, we can be a team, that can beat the big ones. We are very sorry lost of the Ada Meshkova, that was an amazing lady, it’s a hard moment for the team.”

William Accambray

“It was a tough game against a really good team, the first big test for us after the preseason. We made a good preseason, last game was on Saturday, so we had only one day to prepare for this game. It was not so easy to play but we played really good and until the last minute, nobody can say who will win the game. But Veszprem did it, congratulations to them. I think it’s positive to us keep this level during all the season. I think we’ll do some great things if we play like this every time, so it’s positive for us also.”
