Telekom Veszprem coach David Davis, once again, praised his compatriot between the posts, Rodrigo Coralles, who is in superb form at the start of the season. After SEHA Final4 in Zadar, the newcomer from PSG Handball, was on the helm of Hungarian champions with 17 saves in starting victory at the EHF Champions League in Nantes.
- It is always difficult to win here, we knew it and they showed it. The two halves were equal I think. We were intelligent because we kept our defensive level really high. I am sure that they are going to take a lot of points from the guest teams in Nantes – said Coralles after his team win 28:24.
Legendary Macedonian right back, the All-Time TOP scorer Kiril Lazarov, scored five goals at the beginning of his last season in career. The 40-years old shooter netted five goals, but that wasn’t enough to keep his team on the winning path.
- I think we lost our heads in the first half because we felt we had a chance to win against Veszprém. They deserved the victory today. They had an excellent goalkeeper performance. We are not happy but we continue the work we started. We have to wake up because we will have more difficult matches against Kiel and Barcelona.
