Ivica Olic: The fans were our twelfth player today! It felt like the team was playing at home
— I knew it was not going to be easy today, — Olic said. — All the players held a training session together only two days ago. It was clear that the guys were tired of the games (in the national teams) and the long road. But the attitude was right. I saw a lot of good moments. Yes, we did not use all our chances, but the most important thing is that we took three points. Everyone said that the victory was already ours before the match. But how many times have the weaker teams taken points from the stronger ones? Now we need to concentrate on the next match.
— Did it affect the quality of the game that there was a pause for the national teams, and you did not have many players at your disposal?
— Yes, unfortunately. We also have an injury. He (Magnusson) played for the national team, trained a little on Friday, and he has been injured today. According to my information, the injury is serious. It is very sad that we lost such an important player for us.
— Are you surprised that so many fans came to support the team?
— I just wanted to say about the fans at the beginning. I had a feeling that we were playing at home! I want to tell them that they did very well. It is important to me that they were with us today. The fans became our twelfth player.
— Fans chanted your name and hung a banner in your honor.
— This is a very emotional moment for me. I am very happy that we won after two defeats, and that they saw it.
— How do you assess Bohinen's performance? And why did the choice fall on him, and not on Oblyakov?
— He has been training since the first day I arrived. I really liked how Bohinen worked on trainings. Emil played a great match, I can count on him.
