Following an Optibet Virsliga 35th-round win against FS Jelgava (1:0) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.
Valmiera FC head coach Jurģis Kalns: “Thank you to the guys, the goal of the season has been fulfilled. The fight for the Eurocups is over, now we have a chance to determine who will be the champion. We want to do it, we want to be involved in it. The most important thing today was three points, we knew how hard this game would be, we knew how compact Jelgava can defend, and how patiently they play without the ball. We knew that one goal could decide everything in this game and it did. There were some thoughts that I would have to say these words – everything is over, we are in the Eurocups. Thanks to the fans who were here after our last bad game. I received congratulations after today’s match, thanks to them, they are great. They deserved Valmiera in the Eurocups next year, we did it together, no matter how hard. In principle, I wouldn’t want to talk about the end of the season, there is still one game ahead, but this has been a very hard season, up, and down, the work has been done, and the place in the Eurocups has been won and that was the most important thing.”
