Koník Ends as Coach of AS

Coach Vladimír Koník leaves due to disagreements in opinions.

Vladimír Koník is not the coach of AS Trenčín any longer. He agreed to finish his contract with the club’s management and his departure was subsequently announced to the team on Friday morning. The upcoming training session will be led by the assistant duo Adrián Guľa and Roman Hodál. “Based on several discussions this week and after some serious opinion discrepancies we decided to terminate our mutual cooperation. The opinions of the coach on the further direction of the team were different from ours on principle. We therefore decided to finish our cooperation immediately,“ said the general manager of AS Róbert Rybníček.

The first team has not been doing very well recently and after the five draws in a row is fourth in the league table having a deficit of eight points behind the leading Púchov. “A lot of factors that I do not want to analyze now have had impact on this decision. The team results is one of them,“ said the general manager and added: “I respect opinions of others and the same is true about our former coach. It is however not possible to change a philosophy overnight. I have been trying to stick to some principles and I am not ready to change my way of thinking regarding the direction of the club.“

The new coach is to come during the winter break. It is quite possible that it is going to be a foreign expert. “The team is in hands of the assistants now. Adrián Guľa will temporarily act as the main coach with Roman Hodál being his assistant. This coaching team will finish the fall part of the season. It seems like the best solution considering their work so far. The further steps will be considered later. Martin Rusnák is having duties with the national team at the moment. If he is interested, he can continue with us. I do not want to discuss such serious matters with him over the phone though,” added Rybníček.
