Rybníček: Club Owners Want to Give Opportunities to Players From Youth Teams

Explanation why no new face appeared in the dressing room of AS was given by general manager Robert Rybnicek.

Transfer season for professional football players in Slovakia finished in the second half of last week. Last possible day for a change in the team was on the 10th of August, but no new face appeared in the dressing room of AS. Explanation was given by general manager Robert Rybnicek, who also willingly answered questions that appeared in discuss forum on club’s website.

Transfer season is over and Rob McDonald’s team is without a change. Why?

„This situation results from our new club owners point of view. They decided to give opportunities players from our youth teams and perform better and better every match. Quality players should come during winter break. Our goal is to bring quality into the team, not to just increase competition and for that we need time, which we unfortunately did not have. On the other hand, we believe in players we have at the moment and want to give opportunities for the young players. New owners saw their work and enthusiasm during trainings and if we stick to hard work, success will come.”

Three Brazilians were on trial, none of them would be an asset?

„Only midfielder Douglas Peruíbe fulfilled our criteria. The other two would not be special assets for the team.  His financial requirements were far above our average but his qualities as a player did not meet them. “

Team lost two matches in the last minutes against Artmedia and Slovan. Experienced team might not lose both of them.

„Everyone knows we need 2-3 experienced players. We might have had more points by now, but it is not what we are looking for at the moment. We are mainly interested in near future. Of course we were all sad, just like our players, but we see improvement. Against Trnava everything can be different. Team’s self confidence is growing and second half in Slovan is a proof. This is what we are seeking. “

Often you have to hear that this team will barely stay in the league, rather than play for title…

„Our intention this year is not to win the title. We all look forward to next season. During winter break we want to bring new quality players, and reinforce team once again in summer. Only then comes time to compete with the best teams. We realize it is a courageous aim, but our players’ portfolio is promising. Nevertheless, only when they change their mentality and attitudes, we can all achieve high targets. In half a year time our players can be of different qualities. They have to believe in themselves and their potential. It is difficult for us to explain all this to public. Fans have long been waiting for good results, but give us time and certain level of tolerance. We believe in an early change.”

Are you not afraid of the „Boriero“ effect?

„Not at all. I believe in this project. Every week face of the club is changing. Let’s mention newspaper and website as an example.  Management of the club and organizational teams for youth are growing in numbers, which I consider very important.”
