Hrnčár | It will not work without following the rules

Norbert Hrnčar after three league games, one cup and less than a month on the bench of AS Trenčín as a coach of our fortunaliga team has his point of view. The end of the national break brought room for a short analysis of the first weeks in Trenčín.

How did your first weeks in AS Trenčín go?

I can characterize them as very hectic. I met players individually not only in performance but also in personality. Of course, the actual management of the first team was also new for me. Even before joining, I made a game analysis to come up with a clear intention as an implementation team.

Did you sort tasks by time priority?

It is logical that you cannot give too much information to the team immediately upon arrival. They wouldn´t give it much attention. Moreover, it would be counterproductive. We therefore focused on the basic attributes that needed to be improved. Gradually, we will work in detail with the things we need to improve.

How did you take the national break?

It was the first time we had extra space. We worked more intensively. My colleagues and I worked together to make the team ready for the last three matches. That was the most important thing for us.

What were your goals after joining the team during the autumn?

For me the priority is always the next match. Solving what will be in a month is of little importance. Only then can we take the next steps. For me, this is the alpha and omega of success. We must always overcome the obstacle that is ahead of us. We are therefore going step by step.

Right from the start, you spoke positively about this team´s work, today also your´s team...

I can still confirm that work ethics are at a very high level. The cabin has a good atmosphere. I can feel the guys have it. You can see it in trainings. It didn´t matter what challenge we tried, the team has responded well. From this point of view, I must say that my first feelings were confirmed to me today. Trenčín has an interesting player quality. However, it needs to be transferred to the matches. One thing is what you have on paper. The second is reality on the pitch. It is here that we must show the strength of AS Trenčín.

How do you perceive the current team composition? Will you ask for a player replacement before spring?

There is always something to improve. The truth is that in the summer, players came with experience not only from the AS, but also from other leagues. Also this is the way that the club responded to last season. I have already said that. One thing is theory, the other is reality on the pitch. This is where the guys have to confirm it practically daily.

You are going through a very hectic period. In addition to the League carousel, you have experienced a match against fans, a visit to the Hall of Fame evening and other events. How do you perceive this period?

Football is first and foremost about the games themselves, but today it also includes inherent marketing activities. I am glad when we can introduce players and club in another form of promotion. I can add to the match against the fans only one thing. Football without active or passive viewers is not football. We need every single one. I can only ask everyone to be patient during this difficult period. We must overcome this together as successfully as possible and look forward to the new stadium.

What conditions did you find in the training process in Trenčín?

Today, Trenčín is a very well-secured club in terms of facilities and infrastructure despite the ongoing construction of the stadium. A great plus is the comfort of the training process. I don´t have to worry about getting to the playground in the rain or destroying it. We also have a good background in terms of diagnostics and monitoring of the training process. I found it really well set. I´m glad to be able to work in such a professional environment.

Artificial turf is a hot topic today. How do you perceive these areas after your direct experience in AS Trenčín?

As I mentioned, training comfort is significantly higher. If we had seven or eight grass areas in the clubs, two of which were heated, let´s have natural grass. Let´s not talk that one grass pitch is enough for the training process during autumn, winter and early spring. Natural grass has its charm. Football was born on it. However, in terms of training comfort and our economic possibilities, we must respect the alternative of artificial turf. We should be grateful for this opportunity.
