The U15 Team of AS Trenčín Still without a Point Loss

The prestigious duel against Slovan Bratislava on Sunday at 10 am.

The U15 team is the most successful of all teams of AS Trenčín in the current season. They have played eleven games so far and won all of them. We interviewed Milan Spurný, the coach of the team.

How would you briefly evaluate the current season so far?

Our first game against Nitra was very important. Nitra is considered to be a top favorite of the league, but we succeeded and won 1-0. This tough victory started a victorious series that have continued up to the present day.

Nitra really seems to be sovereign. They have lost no points yet besides the loss against you. Do you think it was the ‘game of fall’?

Absolutely. I think they played better, but we fought harder and our morale was higher as well. Moreover, we played without four players of the usual starting lineup. On the other hand, I must admit it was also a very fortunate game for us. Nitra did not seize three excellent opportunities. Our organization was however perfect.

You have gained 33 points in eleven games. What do you think is the main reason for these successes?

I confess I did not expect such success. I have been coaching for 15 years now, but I never experienced this. The main reason behind this success, in my opinion, is that I am working with ambitious young players who are willing to work hard. In addition to that, they are also very talented and the whole team is very well-balanced. There are fighters, technically capable players, left-footers, right-footers, taller ones, smaller ones… It is simply a good mix.

It is very specific to work with young players. The coach has to have results, but he must also prepare players for higher categories or even the main team. How are you coping with this?

I agree. Results and further development of players are both very important and interconnected. I try to appeal to them to be equally concerned with results and performance. When the result is not good, but the effort is tremendous, we are trying not to put them under much pressure. On the other hand, I am very critical if I am not satisfied with the performance no matter if we are winning or not. For instance, the half-time results were 3-0 both against Myjava and Vengloš’s Academy, but I was not satisfied with the second halves. The new players I sent in disappointed me.

It is becoming a good tradition in Trenčín that players from the main team get involved in the trainings of the youth. How do young players perceive this cooperation?

We experienced this in the end of the last season within the frame of the International Day of Children. All categories under 15 years participated in a special joint training with the seniors. Especially the youngest categories reacted very positively. The chance to practice with players from the main team does not come every day. We had another similar opportunity last week. My opinion is that it is very useful to organize such events. It is very valuable for young players to observe professionals ‘at work’. They try to imitate them and practice the same things. I would definitely welcome more of such opportunities for my players.

Let us get back to your team. You are the league leader after eleven rounds and you have not lost a point yet. There are some tough matches in front of you in the end of the fall part…

There will be some really interesting games in the last rounds. Already on Sunday (October 19) at 10 am, we play against Slovan Bratislava (currently fourth in the league). It would be nice if as many people as possible came to support us. Let me remind that the game is going to take place at the main stadium at Sihoť. The last game of the fall part will be in Trnava (third place).
