Bernadette Bognár Bódi (Győr) – her first CL-final with Győr

” It was a fantastic feeling to play for ten thousand people, they gave us a lot of power with their great support. We made a fantastic first half, then we had a weaker period, but our strenghth as a team helped to get through this, to keep fighting and qualify to the final of CL.

Tomorrow will be a new match, no matter who the opponent will be, the most importnat issue will be to win the game, to stay together as a team and stay focused all the way”


Heidi Löke (Győr) – her fourth (!) CL-final in a row (one with Larvik HK and third with Győr)

“We made a really good game, we had to fight against a strong opponent, and our first half was fantastic, having a very efficient and clever offensive play and a strong defense. But then we had a bad period and FCM made a strong come back. We still managed to win the game, and now we are ready for the final tomorrow. I am very proud being in my fourth CL-final, and of course I would like to lift the trophy again.”

We would like to win tomorrow of course, that is the most important now”
