“The penultimate important victory. We are happy with the result. I knew it would be a difficult match, because that’s how the finals are. I felt pressure on my players. Playing with 10,000 people in the stands is not easy. There are many of them who have not gone through such moments, but I enjoy the end of the game, very good, consistent. That, somehow, makes me unhappy, that I came in… not with a bang, that I have nothing to blame…! I’m also a little dissatisfied with the goal taken from the fixed phase, because we could have avoided it very easily, offering the corner from Baia Mare. After that, in the marking, we somehow relax. I am dissatisfied with these, but I am totally satisfied with their dedication. And those who came in from the bench. That’s the spirit. Everyone needs to understand that we promote together and together we mean both the public and everyone who supported us.
Neither of us asked in depth, nor did we move much, maybe, somehow, we were also satisfied with that result, because otherwise I can’t explain myself. The first half, at least, was a half so that time would pass “said the coach of the CS Hunedoara team after the tour game with Minaur Baia Mare.
