Today, a press conference was held at the Aldo Drosina Stadium before the last match of the season, the 36th round of the SuperSport HNL between Istra 1961 and Slaven Belupo. The match is scheduled for Saturday, May 27, starting at 4:30 p.m.
The match was announced by head coach Gonzalo Garcia and player Slavko Blagojević.
The last game of the season is ahead of us against Slaven Belupo team. This was a very good season for us, as well as for them, so we are expecting a high-quality and interesting match. I expect that Slaven team will press from the beginning, that they will be aggressive, defend and try to control the game, which they did last time because they won in the end, but now I think that the circumstances are different. But, we are ready for anything. The goal of the match is of course to win, as always, that is our mentality. We want to keep the current 5th position, says coach Garcia.
We really did a fantastic job this season, even though I didn’t play much due to injury, but I really enjoyed this season. I am proud of the boys, we have great players and a wide team. I was there for them, I was their support and my goal was to help them as much as I could with my experience. Tomorrow is the last game, which we have to take seriously and transfer the whole season to that game. We want to end it in the best possible way, with a victory, says Slavko Blagojević.
See you tomorrow at Drosina!
