Jurgis Kalns: ”The next two games in the standings will be much more important”

25 June 2023

Following an Optibet Virsliga 19th-round loss against FK RFS (0:3) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.

Valmiera FC head coach Jurģis Kalns: “I think the game was similar. Their shots and chances were more dangerous, but they are a more experienced team. In general, I think that 0:3 is not a suitable result for the game. Of course, it is a pity that the result is like this, we are aware of where we are. We don’t live in illusions, we were lucky against Riga FC, the circumstances coincided. Today we also played without several regular players, Zhelizko, Ndoye, Olses, Tonisevs, and Mena are not present. That’s five players and our bench is what it is. There was no emphasis on this game, the next two games in the standings will be much more important. Then the Eurocups will follow. We did without a test game in the selection window and this was a warm-up for us before the marathon expected in the coming weeks. I’m glad that we weren’t the losers, but it’s a pity that the result was a bit too big.”
