Jurgis Kalns: ”Everything will be alright”

5 September 2022

Following an Optibet Virsliga, 27th round loss against FK Liepaja (0:1) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.

Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns: ”First of all, I am very happy for our guys, despite the fact that they were under pressure today, both from the point of view of the table and from the fans, as well as from the people who are on the football field. They persevered, they are Malachians, and they did not get involved in provocations, did not put pressure on things they shouldn’t, but focused on their game. Pigeon’s red card, Daniel has to learn not to answer, the opponent gave him a kulak, a red card for him too. Balo may have automatically tried to answer. The conceded goal is a bit disappointing, we expected an excellent counterplay from Liepāja. You have to play football with such surnames as they play there. It’s not over yet, Liepāja is a Top 4 team. We still have to play in the next round with Riga FC, they play with RFS today, and the whole next round is ahead. Luck has left us a bit. The game plan was executed especially, we knew their strengths and pragmatic style. We knew that in some episodes we had to give the ball to Liepāja. It’s hard to win if you don’t score a goal at the beginning of the second half, both Liepaja and our players admitted that there was a clean sheet. Then a penalty kick was not awarded. Of course, these are the players’ emotions and they thought they were. Everything is still ahead, we have a lot of games to play, and everything will be alright.”
