We need to approach the match better in the first half and to be able to start with a positive result. A victory would be fantastic for us. These days have been good. It’s hard to say what the game will be like.
I think last night’s LC semifinal match is all about football.

“It’s important for our morale to win. If we don’t win, it will be said: FC Argeş lost with FCSB, with Craiova, with everyone, with Farul, and only at Voluntari it won …. Victory would be very important, from all points of view. At CFR I promise that I give my best and the players give everything “, he also stated.

And he received me as a brother, and he did not know me. But he was living with a girl from Romania then, maybe that too … But even now, when I spoke on the phone for the last time, he is always happy to talk to anyone. You saw what a man he is. And Guardiola praised him a lot. Let’s see what happens after the final, if he loses and everyone criticizes him. That’s football. “
