Media Call – Aquincum Hotel – Budapest – 05/05/2017
Irina Dibirova: I am still unexperienced as a head coach but tomorrow we will see if my adaptation was successful or not. CSM Bucuresti is very strong with great players in all positions, so we have to be great on both sides of the court to win.
Andrea Lekic: “It is like the history repeating itself, but we are hoping for a different outcome this time. First of all, it is a privilege to be here for the 4th time in a row. We have to be highly motivated and fight like lions tomorrow to be able to win. The teams are very equal, there is no clear favorite, anything can happen in 24 hours. It is hard to tell now if all this misery with the coaches was working well for us or not: you can learn anything from each coach but we will have the final answer tomorrow. The key to the match will be the concentration: last year, we missed a lot of shots from 7 meters, we can’t afford that once again. We are on a good run in handball so we are hoping for the best.
Camilla Herrem: This is my first and last EHF FINAL4 and this is like a dream coming true for me. I am very excited to play, I will give everything to help my team. Everything is new to me in this event, I had a sleepless night from so much excitement but it won’t affect my game. I hope we can build up a good defense and run a good tempo from it. CSM Bucuresti is a very good team so maybe not everything will go the way we planned but we are prepared and in a good form.
