Pre-season has started

AS Trenčín have started Summer pre-season for season 2018/2019 with a new coach Ricardo Moniz. During this pre-season we are going to a camp in the Czech Republic. We will play 6 matches. Four of them against teams from a top Czech competition. One against the Russian FK Rostov. Assistants of Moniz are Vladimír Cifranič and Juraj Ančic. A trainer of goalkeepers is Tomáš Belic.

The team wasn’t complete on the first training. Nigerians will join the team on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also Slovak representants of U18 category Marián Pišoja and Jakub Kadák will join later. Players from our youth Denis Chudý, Adrián Slávik and Tomáš Svečula joined the A-team.

„Pre-season is short, practically only 4 weeks long. Therefore players should be ready for more intense trainings then in previous years,“ said the assistant Vladimír Cifranič

An injured captain of the A-team Peter Kleščík had an individual training in a gym. He watched the training only for a few moments, but a feeling he had afterwards was good. „We’ll see how will my treatment go. The first prognosis say, that I won’t be able to play for 4-6 weeks. What I can tell from the first training is, that my teammates had to run a lot and were really exhausted. You could clearly tell that this was a different start of the pre-season. I believe that we will be ready for the Europa league and the Fortuna league. We didn’t start the last season very well and we had to work really hard to get back in the game,“ said the experienced defender.

„New impuls is coming, which can be very powerful and motivating for everyone. We are pleased that all members of the executive team accepted this change and are ready to support Ricardo Moniz and the whole club on a way to meeting other sports goals. What matters to us is the fact that Ricardo spent several months with us. He had an opportunity to learn about work and structure of the club´s operation. There is a new and certainly interesting challenge in such cooperation,“ said the general manager Róbert Rybníček.

Besides the newcomers from AS Trenčín youth, a defender Reuben Yem is on trial from Inter Bratislava. Issa Adekunle returned from hosting from the same club and a contract was signed by promising Ukrainian goalkeeper Alexander Morgos and his countryman striker Alexandar Vojťuk. A new aquisition is the Nigerian Chukwuemeka Umeh, a 203-inch striker.
