“We do not aim to win the Romanian Cup!”. What about the instructions on the technical bench


Rapid’s coach, Mihai Iosif, was happy for his students to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Romanian Cup, but says that the team from Giuleşti did not intend to win the trophy, but only a long journey in this competition.

Rapid qualified in the quarterfinals of the cup after defeating CS Mioveni after the tiebreaker, at the end of a match ended after 00:00. The coach of Giulesti, Mihai Iosif, said he was satisfied with this success obtained in front of a first echelon formation, in the context in which the first divisions usually have more accessible opponents in this phase of the competition.

The coach is convinced that his team looked very good in all the matches played this season, but he admits that sometimes he had problems in the second half.

Mihai Iosif doesn’t know what to expect: “I try to be as balanced as possible and we’ll see what happens”

Rapid qualified for the Romanian Cup quarterfinals after passing CS Mioveni and coach Mihai Iosif congratulated his players after the match, but he was still thinking about lack of Pro License. The technician said that he will do everything in his power not to follow other suspensions from the Romanian Football Federation, but he admits that there are moments when the emotions overwhelm him and, thus, it is possible to step crookedly in the future.

“People’s emotion cannot be controlled! At a football match, everyone on the benches of both teams screams, struggles. I try to be as balanced as possible and see what will happen. I don’t think I’ve caused anything so far, I haven’t offended. I want to be myself, I like to say what I think and do what I feel. If I am not allowed, I will try to obey the regulations and do what is best “, said Mihai Iosif at the end of the game.

He said that Rapid does not aim to win the Romanian Cup trophy, but acknowledged that he would like to travel as long as possible in this competition. “We are happy to have won, it was a more than complicated match, against a League 1 team. We do not have the Romanian Cup as our goal, but we will do everything we can to move forward,” said Mihai Iosif.

He specified that he chose to use Cristian Săpunaru against CS Mioveni because the defender is suspended for the championship match with FC Voluntari: “I preferred to play today to have continuity”.
