Following an Optibet Virsliga 15th-round win against FK Liepaja (2:1) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.
Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns: ”We lost 2:4? Let’s play for third place, speaking of hockey, of course. After the game, my first question was about hockey. I gave the guys a day off tomorrow, I said that if they want, they can go to Tampere. Speaking of this game – getting a man advantage already in the 4th minute of the game became more difficult, as it would have been possible to play with even numbers. We knew and predicted how Liepaja would play. I want to praise them, they are great guys, they fought until the end and scored a goal. Of course, they used that rare moment. We had to fight back, it’s good that we managed to score one goal in the second half until the 60th minute of the game. Then a glimmer of hope appeared that maybe we can win this game, because until then there were moments, but I know how we are with the realization. I was worried, knowing the compact defense of the opponents. I am happy to have won three points in such an important game. Thanks to the team for that, you should be happy for every victory, for every goal scored.”
