We are very happy that we realised our dream from the beginning of the season and, in addition, finished the group phase with more points compared to last year. I sincerely thank my players for their work and belief in what they do. I would also like to thank the fans for the excellent atmosphere in the ORLEN Arena. Now comes the break, where we will recharge our batteries for the decisive phase of the season.

It’s a great joy to win in Palau Blaugrana. I played against Barça quite a few times and it’s always extremely hard. This was great but it’s only the group phase. Now starts the toughest part of Champions League.

We are very happy about the victory and reaching the quarter-finals. We played a match with a fantastic atmosphere. It is very difficult to take the two points away from Veszprém Arena, but we remained calm throughout the whole match. We did our job, and it paid off. Sergey Hernandez had a great performance in goal today. However, praise goes to the whole team, as everyone put themselves out there.

Before the group phase started, first place was a dream come true. I am therefore very proud of my boys, very proud of the performances they have shown so far in the Machineseeker EHF Champions League and the group win. But what makes me particularly proud today is that there were so many young fans in the arena.
