Two, Who Attracted Attention at Unusual Posts

Juraj Krizko: "The coach Weiss and myself exchanged a few words. Well, that‘s a part of football.”

AS, in spite of their significantly defensive tactics and perhaps, of even somewhat of „antifootball“, finally at least a little bit pleased their fans. Over the Bratislava bridge they kept in check the league leader, Artmedia Bratislava, until the very last minutes. The team, which has encountered 53 points more than players of Martin Stano, did not make the final 3 point decision until the 86th minute after the shot from Jan Kozak‘s boot. „We felt nervousity on their side. Some of them kept detabating with the referee from the first minute. As the time was passing, also defenders were engaging in the attack,“ said, perhaps the best of Trencin players, Peter Čögley.

Juraj Kňažko presented equally responsible performance as a stopper. Back in the fall he starred with his three scores in the net of Zlaté Moravce. „I kicked Halenár a few times, which made him nervous and a grumpy immediately. The coach Weiss and myself exchanged a few words. While managing defence, he told me that was the way I should have managed in Žilina. Well, that‘s a part of football,” recalls this tall forward Sunday fight. As for the definitive moment he adds: “Artmedia had pressure, however, they didn’t score from any clear certain shot and afterwards they scored the way they did. We shouldn’t have let Kozák turn on five.“

Neither Čögley, nor Križko entered the game on their usual posts. The first one played in the back-up formation and the other, in the defense line. Both have gained certain experience with these posts. „It didn‘t take long for me to get in. Maybe because one attack followed the other. I think we did pretty well,” said Kižko and added: “Always I played in the offence, although upon my entry into the senior youth team, I moved to the stopper post. The coach Jánoš placed me in the men team also as a defender.”

The player of the successful Trenčín hatchery Čögley, per contra, returned back to the position when playing for the junior team. „I did not transfer to the defence border until I was in the senior youth team, when we played according to 4 – 3- 3 system. I also tried the offence. I got to the defence when I had to stand in for a standing player after a red card and I did well. I‘ve been only playing for two years at this post,”explains 19 year old young man, who, in reference to the game in Petržalka, adds: “A lot of it was about running. I had to help Kleščík and Marček to double in the defence, but also to Hlohovský in front. Of course, I am not extra technical type, but I always balanced that with running and fighting skills. That‘s what I try to deliver in the team now, too.“

Both players have another thing in commong. Both have been struggling with injuires. After his problems with the knee followed by a surgery, Križko left out the winter preparation, „It was terrible, but I am getting back. By the end of the game, though, I was missing the power,” said Križko. On the other hand, Čögley was out almost for the whole summer and due to the training deficit, it took him long to find comfort and form from play-outs. „I came back two weeks before the league and immediately I was in for the game in Žilina and, after that, in the lost game at home. Things didn‘to go well for the team and we were getting under pressure. I did not feel good, either. I did not have any support and I did not feel like in the play-outs,“ concluded promising football player.
