Sluijter would like to play against fans

Thijs Sluijter answering fans´ questions.\r\n

The first AS player who answered questions asked by the fans on the club’s web forum is Thijs Sluijter, the player from the Netherlands.

What is the main difference between Trenčín and the clubs you played in the past?

I can compare with Bulgarian Litex Loveč. Big emphasis is put on the defense. Teams try to put the competitor under pressure and play counterattacks. It’s exactly the same system we play here. Coaches, thanks to the presence of Ton Jenner, try to utilize training practices including mainly the technical prep common in the Netherlands. As far as the background is concerned, it’s similar to my previous clubs. Quality of medical care and regeneration is solid. We have everything we need. It is definitely better than in Bulgaria.

How are you feeling in Trenčín?

If feel very good. I really like it here. However, everything depends on the team’s results in the league.

How do you evaluate the prep before the spring part of the season based on your experience so far?

It is not important if you are satisfied with the preparation and with results in it. When you start well in the league, it was good. When you are losing, it is considered unsuccessful.

Will AS stay in the league for the next season?

I believe yes. It is going to be difficult but I trust this team. We will do our best to stay in the league.

Did you have any information about Slovak football before Tschen La Ling contacted you?

To be honest, I didn’t.

Why did you leave the Dutch league and went to Bulgaria?

I wanted to gain another experience and I also desired to play abroad.

When did you start with football?

It was when I was 7. We played with my friends in the street before and we all wanted to be in some team. I finally succeeded in it.

Which game and which goal do you remember the most in your career?

Goal? Probably the one I scored against Eindhoven after we returned to the league. It was the fist game for my club against PSV in the top league after 30 years. It was really a big day. We managed to play a draw 1-1.

Who is your football idol?

I like the Brazilian national player Denilson who plays in the left wing, the same as me. He is the 2002 world champion.

What do you expect from playing in Trenčín?

To stay in the league is the most important thing. Of course, I’d like to get to the point when I play football with pleasure.

Would you play against fans if such game took place?

That’s a good idea. I would like to. It could be fun.
