The atmosphere against Košice pleased, legionaries feel bad about the loss

Thijs Sluijter: „It was great... very cordial greeting."

The quintuple of foreign football players in AS dresses thank their fans for greeting in Trenčín organized by dozens of the most loyal supporters during AS lining up for the first spring home duel against MFK Košice. Trenčín “ultras” spread out a banner with the sign “Welcome to Trenchtown” and added a balloon choreography along with flags of Argentina, Netherlands, and Greece.

„Right when we were lining up, I saw the Argentinean flag. I was both nicely surprised and happy about how we were accepted. In spite of unfabourable score, fans kept supporting us during the whole game. Their support is very important for the team, especially when things don’t go very well. I believe that soon a day comes when we start to score and move to upper positions in the chart“, says the forward David Depetris and his fellow countryman adds, „We didn’t play well, therefore I was disappointed after the loss. However, the greeting was really nice.“

The most experienced out of the foreign reinforcement quintuple, Dutchman Thijs Sluijter, was very pleased with the atmosphere at the stadium, too: „It was great... very cordial greeting. During the whole game we felt their support.“ Another of the two „Dutch tulips“ in the AS cadre, Danny van der Ree, returned even one week earlier. „Even during the game in Dubnica there was a great atmosphere. When we were getting off the bus, we met with the fans and it was galvanic... In that rain... they all were great.“

The Greek wing Angelos Chanti, as well as the other four legionaries, was not very excited about the result against Košice, which did not conform with expectations of two thousands fans, nor expectations in the players cabin. „I am convinced that as the time goes, things will be different“, said Chanti and he also added: „That greeting was a big appreciation to me. I can confirm it‘s very important to all of us.“
