Prague / London – Representatives Tomáš Souček and Vladimír Coufal unexpectedly won the Premier League in Leicester 3-0 in October with West Ham footballers, and both are convinced that “Lišky” can be tormented at least a lot by Prague’s Slavia in the opening round of the European League elimination phase. According to former red and white players, the Czech champion of the English favorite could surprise with honesty and diligence, but he must avoid unnecessary mistakes and be careful of the opponent’s counterattacks.

“When I was in contact with the boys and the coaches, I told them that we gave them 3-0 that they could watch the video from our match. Of course just for fun. Leicester is a great team, in recent years it has been in top six Premier League and deservedly. So it will be terribly difficult, “Souček said in an online interview with journalists.

“But I believe that as honest as Slavia is, tactically and hard-working, they can flood them a lot. In addition, Leicester can play individually and Slavia can overcome them as a team. I give Slavia quite a chance and I trust them. But she has to give herself beware of counterattacks, “added the 25-year-old midfielder, who has been in West Ham for over a year.

Coufal is also convinced that Slavia is definitely not against the third team of the Premier League without a chance to advance. “What does she have to do to eliminate Leicester? Of course she has to be a little lucky, not to make some stupid individual mistakes. When they play as a team like the European League or the Champions League two years ago, they definitely have a chance. The team is strong and it was beautiful now, “said Slavia Coufal on the YouTube channel.

In Leicester, he premiered in the English league in early October just three days after his transfer from Slavia. “It was a huge match. They had perhaps 70 percent possession of the ball, but they didn’t have a shot at the goal. When I looked at the stadium and the field before the match, it was unbelievable. When I stood next to striker Vardy in the tunnel, I say: Is “Here it was, you wanted it, so you got it. I started to believe a lot when I blocked Vardy once. I say to myself: That’s good,” Coufal said.

He was impressed by the Belgian midfielder Leicester Youri Tielemans. “I really liked the match. So he had a hard time because he played Suk. But he was really good. A very technically equipped player, through which most of the events went,” remarked the 28-year-old right back.

According to him, Slavia can look forward to a beautiful environment in an outdoor retaliation in a week. “The stadium is beautiful. Although older, but I think it has been modernized. Perfect course, amazing interiors. It’s huge, you won’t see it in the Czech league. I hope the boys will enjoy it a lot and at least it will bother them a lot. I will definitely not keep the match. miss it, “Coufal added.

According to former West Ham slaves, the double match, which fans cannot afford due to coronavirus, will be much watched in England. “Cuf and I made Slavia a big name here, everyone is looking forward to the match. It will be such a big comparison. I think it will be a very watched match here in England,” Souček said.
