The Croatian champions PPD Zagreb will have a little bit different roster in comparation with previous years. Goalkeeper Filip Ivic (Vive Tauron Kielce) and Luka Stepancic (PSG Handball) left the team, while new members are Slovenian trio – right back David Miklavcic, goalkeeper Matevz Skok and left wing Dario Cingesar.
The team’s director Ante Ancic thinks that team will be stronger in the upcoming season, but also that two quarter-finals in past two years are unrealistic achievements:
- That was definitely over reality. I am not realistic guy, in box match against Tyson, I would come and want to win. It is the same situation with Zagreb. We always expect to win, nevermind who is on the other side. We were lucky to get coach with that kind of mentality. We made results over our real value. Let’s try to repeat that for the third time in a row and, if we have the chance, go even further. Veselin Vujovic brought a lot of good things to the club. I am not an expert, but in my opinion, he is the best coach on the planet. He brought fighting spirit and faith in own power. Our training session are much stronger than most of the matches during season. He gave us also a lot of positive energy, hopefully, he will stay for a long time in Zagreb – concluded Ancic story for Balkan-Handball.com.
