1 June 2023

Following an Optibet Virsliga 16th-round draw against FS Metta(1:1) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.

Valmiera FC head coach Jurģis Kalns: “Two greetings, the first to the people of Latvia, we have a new president. Second birthday greetings to Andris Riherts. We did not give a whole gift, but we gave half of it. The end of the first half was very weak, we need to analyze why. In the second half, we made changes and the game changed a bit. Apart from the penalty kick, apart from our own mistake, Metta didn’t create anything. By some miracle we conceded a goal, good thing we got it back quickly. I think that the result is natural, that is our current level, as I said before. We are a team that currently has to fight for third, fourth, fifth, and sixth place. Looking at the table at the moment, we are in third place, we are also sitting there stably, if we took three points today if we take three points in the next game, then its stability would be so deep that the season could end soon. With the squad we have now, we have squeezed out a lot. There were games that we didn’t have to lose, we could have won if the conditions were right. We are where we need to be right now.
