Meshkov Brest - Pick Szeged: press conference


Juan Carlos Pastor:

- Congratulations to Brest for the victory. I think the key moment was the first ten minutes of the second half. We lost the match at this moment. We got two suspensions, missed two passes... We tried to continue to fight but couldn’t win . It’s difficult in our situation because the players are just starting to come back after quarantine. Now we have a lot of problems, but we continue to fight and wait for the changes in the future.

Jonas Kallman:

- I congratulate Brest on the victory. This is our third Champions League game. The last weeks have been very difficult. We don´t have a lot of players, they are only starting to come back now - after six weeks. But many handball players still don´t practice. We are trying to fight, but, as you can see, this is not enough yet. We need to give more energy if we want to take points in the Champions League, where really cool teams are gathered. We will go home and train harder.

Raul Alonso:

-I must say that the circumstances before the match were not good. It was a really tough situation for both teams. And we know that Pick had a really hard weeks. Probaly we had advantages because we were playing at home and we missed not so many players. Both teams tried to do the best to compete at the highest level. Pick Szeged started good, specially in defense. And basically the first half was an equal game. I must also thank Ivan Pesic for putting his health in the game. He had injury, but Ivan Matsckevic also was out of the roster. Pesic showed a really good performance. And Pick didn´t have the possibilities in the second half, some players was out of rhythm. We used this to get advantage. I´m happy that we won this match. It’s very important to get points in the Champions League. And my best wishes to Pick. I know this is a tough time for all teams. Thanks for our fans for the support. Now we go to Gomel to play next game of national championship in 48 hours.

Ivan Pesic:

- We showed a good level of handball today. I am glad that my partners helped me after the injury. The defense worked perfectly. The victory is well deserved. I am very pleased with the start of the season - we already have six points. I think this team is capable of a lot in the future.
