Gábor Elek, head coach FTC: ” I hoped for a better performance from my team, especially in attack we needed to play better today, our backcourt play was weak. We tried but it did not work at all.
After the break we had some hope to get back into the game, but it was only a shorter period when we managed to make a close race. The reality is that we have been defeated by a better team.”
Ambros Martín, head coach, Győr:
“We expected to play a difficult, tough game as we played. We managed to focus and set the tempo of the game which was needed in a final, and in the crucial moments, the team has controlled the game.
” We had many good individual performances, but this comes second when I have to mention that we played without six injured players and despite this we won the gold. The fact shows the power and strength of my team.”
