Ludogorets coach Ante Shimundza gave a press conference before tomorrow's match with the Finnish champion HJK Helsinki.
“3 games in 7 days? The big teams in Europe play like this. It means we are doing well and on the right track. A win will always be good. It will solidify the work. Everyone wants to win. It's not at any price, but everyone wants it. We'll see how the match goes tomorrow. HJK is a well-organized team," Shimundza began.
"We have no new serious injuries since our last game. This is good. All players feel good physically and mentally. Claude Gonsalves played 60 minutes for the second team and the reaction has been positive," he added when asked if he could use the Portuguese on Thursday.
"In the last two games, we conceded goals from static situations. We must continue to defend ourselves in a static level position. We have to say that out of 7-8 situations we have one miss. These are individual, not team mistakes. Everyone must take responsibility. Static situations are part of football and we have to respond to them in the best way," he stated.
"Of course it's always good to have a clean grid. We know who we played the last few games and how they went. From the outside it is one thing, from the inside things have to be looked at more deeply. We are not happy that we haven't had a game without conceding a goal recently, even though the opponents didn't have many chances. I hope we will have one in the next matches", concluded the Slovenian.
