Šemrinec: We will play in a European competition for the 6th time in a row, it’s a great achievement

The last match of the season 2017/2018 ended for the team led by Vladimír Cifranič pretty well. The final match of the fight for the tickets to the Europa league UEFA against MŠK Žilina brought awesome football theater. After a 120 minutes and two goals scored by Azango we were the happier team.

„It was a hard match, mentally and physically. There aren’t a lot of matches like this one. I’m happy, that we could try it. There was everything. Pugnacity, chances, combinations and also goals. I’m sure that our fans had a great time,“ said Igor Šemrinec.

The young Nigerian winger Philip Azango showed many great moments during a spring time, but he struggled with scoring. Until Sunday he scored only one goal. „Thank God for the win. We knew, that every match against Žilina is hard. However, we prepared as usual. Today we are looking forward to matches in the Europa league. We did it. I’m happy that I could help the team with a goals,“ said cheerfully Azango.

The great match with a lot of chances brought not only a drama, but also a great football. „I’m very happy, that we won in the end. Maybe we don’t realise what we have achieved yet, but we are going to play in a European competition for the 6th time in a row. It’s a great succes for the club, players, fans and also the city,“ said Šemrinec.

All the players fought over their limits. Many of them showed the best performance of this season. Lukáš Skovajsa wasn’t an exception. „It was a drama till the end. With a happy ending for us. We’ve achieved the goal after a bad start of the season. We could have done it sooner, but we played under a pintlessly high pressure on our home pitch. Although, we were able to break that bad series against Ružomberok. That match was very important. We proved our great statistics from away matches in a match against Žilina and now we can celebrate,“ added Skovajsa.
