Vujovic’s special methods before Barca: Early morning training as punishment

PPD Zagreb made amazing progress this season with Veselin Vujovic on the bench. One of the best handball players ever made significant step forward with talented Croatian squad, who is playing for the VELUX EHF Champions League Final 4 against FC Barcelona. The first match in Zagreb in front of 15.200 gave a lot of reasons for satisfaction despite defeat 23:25, enough that Vujovic believes in his guys before the second clash in Blaugrana on Saturday.

However, he wasn’t satisfied with the team’s effort against the biggest domestic rival RK Nexe Nasice 29:25. Day after, he arranged training session early in the morning (7.o0) as way of punishment…

– We have to play like we don’t have nothing to lose. We have to show quality and prove all we did this season in the Champions League. If we open the game with some fear, disaster waiting us – said Vujovic and added: 

– Guys didn’t play well match against Nexe. They told me their heads are already in Barcelona. Now, it’s time to see whether are they players or tourists? We can play better in attack in comparation with the first match, but we have seen also how we can defend against Spaniards. But, all of that was in front of 15-16.000 home fans. Barcelona is better on home soil, but we also have to show improvement – concluded Vujovic.
