Pavel Vrba: I´m very proud of my players
Satisfaction. This is the best characteristics of the mood in Plzeň now. „We showed a great strenght, I think. We continue in the performance as in the last season when we showed we could compete with the giant clubs,“ Vrba is thinking about the match.
„I´m going to evaluate both these matches together. I´m really glad we managed both of them and it is well-deserved that we advanced to play off with the score 7:0. Our players showed the game which I´m very proud of. The atmosphere was also great and I´m happy to have this experience,“ Vrba was enthusiastic about the result. „Ruch´s disadvantage was that Polish League haven´t started yet so they played two matches less than us.“
In comparison with the lineup of the last season, Plzeň´s midfielders were changed a lot. Nevertheless, it wasn´t to the detritment of the quality. „Vláďa Darida confirmed again that he is of the most tallented young players in the Czech. Martin Fillo had some injury troubles so he had to be substituted in the 60th minute. He played one of his best matches yet. Michal Ďuriš substituted Milan Petržela in everything,“ the coach thinks.
„I would also like to thank to all fans and to Ruch´s fans, too. Except for the bangers thrown to the pitch in the first hal-.time, they were also fantastic. This is how it should be in football and they deserve thanks.“ Not all fans had a chance to get in the arena. More than 20 000 people watched the game online. „The fans showed they´re really interested in Plzeň´s football,“ Vrba says.
