Goulash: Even clubs are in the minds of players

Tuesday, November 09, 2021 10:13

If not parade, the men’s handball team finished the one-week training camp with two victories. According to Captain István Gulyás, it is acceptable that the concentration is not yet in place.

The men’s handball team, which played two matches with Bosnia and Herzegovina at the end of the training camp, will have a useful week of preparation. István Gulyás’ team won both matches, but by no means as confident as the audience – or the professional staff – expected.

“We also expected better performance, mainly because the team did an excellent job all week. “We thought the boys were going to soar, but in the end it fell short of congratulating the opponent on the one hand, and an important warning to us about our mental state on the other,” the captain said after the double match against the Bosnians.

The noses were hanging in the locker room

“We found out before the match that the Bosnians had left several of their stars at home, and that might have reassured the boys a little subconsciously. The point is, in a tougher match than expected, but we beat them and we also won the closed goalie training match. In the second match, we played almost exclusively young people, who quickly scored 5-6 goals, which they kept almost all the way around, and we finally won by three, ”Gulyás inaugurated, returning to the match on the screen.

“The team was frustrated after the blowout, to put it mildly, there was no hurray in the locker room. The problem was not that we had a harder time winning than we expected, in fact our defense was quite okay as we didn’t get many goals. However, we got exactly the goals we discussed to avoid, and that annoyed the players. ”

“We wanted to run them, so they slowed down the game very well, and when we finally got the momentum, we scattered a lot of balls and we missed out, so Bosnia was able to stay around our necks.”

The captain, of course, not only saw negatives, he said, for example, that the youngsters were excellent and saw good performances overall, including from Mikler Roli, who contributed great victories to the victory.

Even the clubs are in the minds of the players

We asked Gulyas if his team is going to have a good two months before the European Championships in Hungary. After some thought, the captain replied.

“It’s hard to say that now because it was felt that the boys aren’t going to the European Championships in their heads yet. “The national team is very important to everyone, but now they still head to their clubs, which is no wonder, as most of them are still waiting for important international and league matches.”

“It is important that we do not have any new injuries, and I also see Petit Hornyák being replaced. It wasn’t the goal now to drive the boys to death either, but we’ve done the planned work, and if I’m optimistic, we’ll be where we need to be now. “There is still plenty of work for us to do, but I am not pessimistic ” the captain added.

According to Gulyás, part of the work still to be done will be that the Hungarian national team will have to map out the brand new match venues, where it will play at the European Championships. “It will be very important that we put in the new halls. We are not going to play an official match, but we will definitely want to train in the new giant hall, for example, because space perception is extremely important in such a huge air space. The players know this too, because sometimes we go out to train in the open air, and in such cases the balls always go back and forth in such a way that it is a pleasure to watch, ”he added with a laugh.

“We still have a tight month until we have a generous European Championship frame, but maybe I’m not revealing a big secret that our team’s backbone has formed in the last two world competitions. There are still places to rent, but huge surprises will not come to the fans when we hand over the list to the EHF on December 2, ”the captain concluded.
