Elf doesn’t even want to hear about the silver, he goes to Tokyo to win

Friday, July 09, 2021 11:14

According to the OSC T-shirt class, adapting to special circumstances will be key and you are not interested in the group schedule because the Olympics will start in the quarterfinals.

Krisztián Manhercz he had a great season with the OSC and of course he will be there at the Tokyo Olympics as a member of the Hungarian T-shirt team. In addition to him, one and a half newcomers joined the team, one of whom Hárai Pufi (without whom there has been no national team for years) and the party Balázs Erdélyi, who has played at the OSC all season, is already (probably) traveling to the Olympics as a Vasas player.

“Does the team show the players who had what season at their club? Maybe so, but it’s a big family here, we’ve known each other for a long time, almost everyone has been playing with everyone already, so it’s easy for the national team to focus on a common goal. Our good season is just as over as the less successful season of some of our teammates, so no one cares about it, we just turn to the common goal, ”said Manó cheerfully.

The Tokyo field has leveled off

The Hungarian team was placed in the easier group in the draw for the Olympic T-shirt tournament, which on the one hand is not bad news, but on the other hand it means that in the quarterfinals, a strong opponent will come even if Hungary wins its group.

“I’ll be honest: I don’t care about the draw at all. Anyway, we still have to play with the strongest teams, no one has a paved road in an Olympics, and whatever group you are in, the tournament really starts with the quarterfinals. “In the first week, no one has the Olympic gold in their head yet, the point during the group round is to get the team in better shape and catch the yarn.”

South Africa, the United States, Greece, Japan, Italy – they are the group opponents of the Hungarians, and although the group does seem easier than the other, Manó said it would be a big deal to win six.

“The Italians are the World Cup defending champions, the Greeks finished third in the World League, and the Japanese are playing quite a strange water polo in a domestic pool, which we don’t know yet how much the referees will be rewarded. So it won’t be easy in the group either, and the quarterfinals will really start from the quarterfinals. ”

In the other group, there will be a huge battle for the first four places to advance, as two of Australia, Croatia, Serbia, Spain, Kazakhstan and Montenegro will be eliminated in the group.

Where is our place in the field?

“There are 6-7 teams that can beat each other at any time, absolutely unpredictable, in Tokyo to see who gets the best out of the move. Let’s take a look at the Spanish national team, they have also played finals in European and World Championships in recent years, most recently finishing for eighth place. The field is very tight, the teams are close to each other. ”

“Since only 12 + 1 players can be entered into the tournament, it will also be crucial who lives in this situation. It will be new to everyone, but I’m sure many will incorporate it into tactics as well, for example, maybe there will be one who only appoints a goalkeeper for a match. There is definitely a need to pay close attention to exchange tactics and exhibitions as well. ”

“Of course, it’s not just because of self-confidence that we won the last national team tournament [ez a 2020-as, hazai rendezésű Európa-bajnokság volt – a szerk]. It is also important that we travel to Tokyo with a united, familiar team, as 8-9 of the 13-man team was also there at the Rio Olympics, so we are not getting to know each other now, ”Manó added with a laugh.

“We already know that there can be no spectators, which is unfortunate, but lately we have unfortunately become accustomed to playing in front of empty stands,” Manó responded to the news that there could be not only foreign but also domestic spectators in Tokyo.

Manhercz and the OSC closed the club season with two unexpected but very joyful and fully deserved silver medals. We nailed the question to Mano as to whether he would also sign a third silver in advance.

“I wouldn’t sign now” the OSC classic said. “The value of silver is always measured only in retrospect, and I’m with it as long as there’s a minimal chance of gold, I’m just focusing on that. And so it is with the whole team: we are going for the gold, we want to be Olympic champions! ”
