Alonso: “I respect and admire my guys“
Meshkov Brest - Metaloplastika 32:21 (14:11)
(Vailupau 6, Panic 5 / Milic 6)
Veselin Vukovic, Metaloplastika coach:
Our team is still young and lacks experience. Meshkov were rock solid today and that's what decided the encounter as well as the fact the trip to Brest exhausted our team quite a bit. I'd like to return here one day, to this great atmosphere, and be able to deliver a better outing. Congrats to Meshkov.
Aleksandar Babic, Metaloplastika player:
We were looking really good in the first 20-25 minutes as we were able to keep up with their tempo. However, after that, it seemed like we're lacking focus and they knew how to use it showcasing strength and experience.
Raul Alonso, Meshkov Brest coach:
I am very happy for my guys and the team as a whole. We reacted in the right way demonstrating quality handball. Tempo we're dealing with is really hard, this was our 32nd match of the seasons. We've played three matches in past five days and I have to say I respect and admire my guys. I also want to say I think Metaloplastika have a good young team with a bright future.
Nemanja Obradovic, Meshkov Brest player:
Guests opened the match in a really good way and I think the future really is bright for them. I wish them al the best and I'm looking forward to meeting them again.
