“In perfect physical and mental condition” and “look” were the words CSKA coach Nestor el Maestro said in Bulgarian in his TV interview after the 2-0 win over Loko (Sf).
The 40-year-old specialist was born in Serbia but has a British passport. He has been on the Island since he was 15 years old. Apart from England, he works in Italy, Austria and Spain as a youth coach. For men, there are stays in Germany, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Austria and Turkey.
El Maestro understands the questions in Bulgarian, but apparently the good mood from the victory made him say a few words in our language.
“Our performance in the first half was pretty good. We’re getting closer to where we want to be. Our goal is to win every game and we’re starting to do that.
It’s nice to play here (at “Army” – n.b.). I didn’t expect so many people to come and make this wonderful atmosphere. I have never felt as calm as possible – only one bad result can bring back the boos,” shared the “red” coach.
“We tried to get something. We played well in defense in the first half but they conceded a ridiculous first goal. At the end of the first half they conceded again and the boys were frustrated at the break. CSKA have very strong midfielders and forwards.
We said that we have to score and make the game interesting. We had three clean sheets, which is a success for “Army”. The first was France’s, and after that there were still 20 minutes left in the game.
We have problems defensively, we concede ridiculous goals. We are trying to find the best way to eliminate these errors and not allow such hits again.
We will try to play more aggressively against Black Sea. We lack points but we are playing better every week. The boys look stronger on the field. We have pressure and worry because we don’t have points. We performed well against CSKA and Ludogorets, and we will come out victorious against Cherno More. Let’s hope we succeed,” said Loko (Sf) coach Danilo Doncic, who is also Serbian.
