We tried for the best result, Kleščík commended the team

Desired promotion to the Europa league became reality. Thanks to a verve performance from the beginning till the end, we won the match against Prešov (4:0) and the points justly stood home. The match, which was mostly about mental performance, we managed perfectly.

The team led by Martin Ševela had a difficult week. Everybody was expecting a win from the players and attendance in the Europa league. „Many were talking about that we were already in the first round of the qualification to the stage phase of the Europa league. We had to manage the match mostly in our heads. Hats down before the team. Whole collective made a responsible performance,“ said after the last whistle satisfied captain Peter Kleščík.

Second goal, which came right before a half time break, helped us a lot. Antonio Mance scored a header. AS was clearly dominating the second half and added two more goals. „We toiled until the end. We were not happy with any lesser result. We wanted to say goodbye to our fans with a nice football and as many goals as we could score. Last but not least, I´m happy for a clean sheet for Šeďo. Prešov had some indications of chances from their counter attacks, but we were able to head them off,“ continued a native from Čadca.

As he remarked, the players didn´t have informations about the match of Podbrezova, so they could focus only on their own performance. „We needed to focus only on our own performance. In the first place, we wanted to do our best. The match in Žilina was out of our reach. Thanks goes also to Šošons, who helped us with their performance. Although, the truth is, that most likely they just didn´t want to diminish their celebrations with loosing the last match of the season,“ added an experienced defender.

A summer break is gonna be very short for us, because the starting matches of the preliminary rounds of the Europa league are held already on 29th June. „I´m flying to Turkey with my family for vacation. When I return I´m immediately going to focus on football again. We are attending the Europa league for the fifth time in a row. If we can keep enthusiasm and passion from the last matches, this year´s edition might be very interesting,“ ended an interview Kleščík.
