Last year, the MOL Tatabánya national team striker scored fourteen goals for his former team, and this year he would be able to do half as much if he managed to beat Ferencváros in the rally.
Gabi Ancsin is one of the domestic handball players who achieved the Grand Slam: he played in Veszprém, Szeged, Ferencváros and now he is playing for Tatabánya. He strengthened the FTC for one season under the heavy fire of the national team’s left-hander, and even today he does not deny that, on the one hand, he had a great time in Népliget, and on the other hand, his career really needed the IX. district period.
“It was then that the project began to be built, as a result of which we can host a great Ferencváros on the weekend” – said the right winger, dressed in green and white in the 2018/19 season. “There was a family atmosphere within the team, I fell into a very good environment, and since I didn’t play as much as I wanted in Veszprém, it was a great feeling to be a 60-minute player again.”

The shooter from Tatabánya looks back on the season he spent at Ferencváros as a nice memory, but he is not so nostalgic that it will leave a mark on his game. In the last season – with Bányás, who was fighting for much more modest goals – he defeated Fradi both times, and in the away match he also switched to Wyatt Earp and scored fourteen (!) goals for his former team.
“This was the most productive match of my professional career,” recalled the 31-year-old striker with a wide smile. “It would be nice if it was everyday, but to be honest, I don’t really care how many goals I score if we beat Fradi. If I score three goals, but the defense goes well and I give 6-7 assists, I will be completely satisfied. In the end, the bottom line is always the three points, and this is even more true for us now.”
Who wants to win a bronze medal…
Since the Miner MOL Tatabánya is named, we talked with team manager Ferenc Ilyés, head coach Csaba Tombor and the goalkeeper of the national team, Marci Székely. The three conversations had in common that all three key figures stated that only the podium would not count as a disappointment. And for that, you will have to beat Ferencváros at home.
“On paper, we are the favorites for the match, but I expect a very tough match.”“We really need these two points, not only because the results against each other are extremely important against a direct rival, but also because every victory like this is a very important boost of confidence for our forming team. I can’t think of anything else but winning” – Ancin stated.

“As for the chances, Fradi was considered the most likely in both games last year, and we won both times, but before that they beat us back and forth for two years. The clash of two teams with similar abilities in handball is completely unpredictable, the one who concentrates more and wants to succeed more will win.”
Lots of changes in both teams
Last year’s results should not be taken as a starting point just because MOL Tatabánya has almost completely changed – in addition to eleven new players, the coach also arrived in the summer – and Ferencváros also has a new coach, and the national team team-mate joined the team alongside several good players. Máté Lékai as well.
“Pásztor Pista has only just started building its own game system, but it is easier, since the core of the team has been playing together for a long time, many of them know each other’s thoughts well on the field.“They have added excellent players to their squad, and we could see that they can stand their ground on the international stage,” said the striker, referring to FTC’s Europa League qualifier with a double win.

Tatabánya is not in Europe this year, but it was able to gauge where it is in the preparation with the MOL Kupán BL teams. “It was a very good opportunity for us to be able to play matches at such a pace, because we could see where we want to go. We also played a good match with Dunkerque before, and in these matches we proved that we can play at an international level.”
“From the point of view of how many new players we have, it might have been better to meet one of our direct rivals a little later, but on the one hand, we are on the right track, and on the other hand, the situation is similar at Fradi, as they have a new coach and new ideas.“We have to get over it, it almost doesn’t matter when. Only one thing matters: that we keep the two points at home with the support of our fan base.”
The MOL Tatabánya-Ferencváros match will be held on Saturday, September 10, starting at 2:10 p.m., the match will be broadcast live by M4 Sport.
