“Three years of construction behind the team”

Eurohandball.com asks coach Csaba Konkoly after the Győr-Slagelse game.

Eurohandball.com: What’s happened with the team in the first half?

Győr and Slagelse played a spectacular gameCsaba Konkoly: The first 10-15 minutes went according to plans and we could keep a 2-3 goal lead. We started to hurry a bit, especially with the scoring opportunities. Slagelse found their rhythm and we kept this pace.

Eurohandball.com: What did you ask at halftime?

Konkoly: To keep playing as we did in the first half and to shoot on Leganger’s goal as we talked about it. We had a couple of defensive situations that gave us an advantage. Slagelse confused us with changing positions, especially when their players got back to their original positions. I talk about Turey, for example, who has a great elevation from 7-8 metres and we could only watch her.

Eurohandball.com: What was the key to the period when you could get a bigger advantage?

Konkoly: Our effective defence, the goals of Dokic and Bradeanu and the sensational form of Pálinger. These together brought a positive change in our play. Our substitutes also tried their best, including Temes who scored 7-m shots in critical moments. In fact, I was not happy that six minutes before the end when we had a big advantage, we started to hurry.

Eurohandball.com: What’s the difference between Győr and Slagelse, in your view?

Konkoly: Slagelse has just begun a road, while there are three years of construction behind our team that we started with Kálmán Róth. We have new players who could integrate quickly into the team.
