After match comments:
Alexander Ribic said that the final result was too harsh on the Maltese side. The Balzan Serbian play maker commented that he was disappointed like the rest of the team because the majority of the players did not follow the pre-match instructions especially in the early minutes of the game. Ribic added that Balzan committed too many mistakes and so this facilitated with ease the opponent’s task to score as many goals as possible. When asked to comment about the several persisting long balls by the Balzan keeper he confirmed yet again that this was not past of the team’s plan but ended his comment in the official UEFA post match press conference that he is looking forward now for Thursday’s match against Lexemax of Moldova where he hopes the team will be more focused.
In an interview to www.sportinmalta.com player coach Florin Anton said that the team had a disastrous start where Balzan FC conceded no less that three goals on the first three minutes of the game. A visible upset Anton remarked that his players did not follow the simple instructions and were too lenient when it came to defend. “We found it very hard to settle in the beginning of the game and our silly mistakes resulted in easy goals for Leotar” added the Romanian born player coach. When asked what were his words addressed at the players during half time Anton stressed that he asked the players to focus more and try not to repeat the disastrous minutes of the first half. “We came out for the second half with confidence and more will to play, that is what I wanted from the start of the game” concluded Florin Anton
