Adrian Mutu reveals the tactics by which he gave a checkmate to Cristiano Bergodi in Rapid – Sepsi 1-0

Adrian Mutu says that he defeated Cristiano Bergodi because he asked his students to approach the two halves differently.

“As we anticipated, it was a difficult match. We knew we were going to have a difficult first half, so we didn’t even dare to find out, because we knew they would have gas in their first half. We thought that in the second half it will be time to push and we saw this.

We were very careful, I wanted this, I did it on purpose, because I didn’t want to risk taking a goal, especially since Sepsi has a very good defense. It was a very nice goal, a football player’s execution, but I think the whole team deserves applause, all the boys. And not only for the goal, but for all the effort they put in, for the fact that they respected the tasks.

I wanted to pass more in the first half, I missed a lot of passes. I risked many times and many players tried to give decisive passes and I told them they had to run.

I think it was interesting and I changed the system and I caught them and blocked them. Belu said that he felt something muscular, let’s see on Monday, we hope he will be fine and that he will be with us at the next match. There are three more matches, we have to be careful. It’s a long way to the side and we’re not there yet (no at the dam). And the dam doesn’t solve anything, who knows what might happen. We stay with our feet on the ground, we take match by match and we see what happens “, said Adrian Mutu, in the flash-interview after the match.

Rareș Ilie, ready for the Conference League dam

The scorer of the only goal of the Rapid – Sepsi match, Rareș Ilie, says that he and his colleagues are already prepared for the qualifying round in the Conference League.

“I knew it was going to be a tough game and we lived up to expectations. We look forward to playing in the Conference League qualifiers. We tied victory after victory, then we’ll go to the dam.

Adrian Mutu encourages us match by match. The coach did his job and the team won “, said Rareș Ilie.

The 19-year-old footballer says that the super goal scored in Niczuly’s goal, when he lobbed the goalkeeper, came from pure talent: “It’s more of an instinct, you don’t have much time to think in those moments”.
