PRESS CONFERENCE AFTER THE SECOND MATCH SERBIA - KOREA

NIKOLA GRBIC, IGOR KOLAKOVIC, HO-CUL KIM AND YOUNG-MIN KWON AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE

At the Press Conference following the last match of the Intercontinental Round Pool B in Belgrade, Mr. Sang-Yeoul KIM, Captain of the Korean Team stated:

We very much wished to win this game tonight especially as it was the last match in this Pool, but I sincerely wish all the best to the Serbian Team in the Finals this year. Our best wishes for a successful Finals for them.

 

Mr. Nikola Grbic, Captain of the Serbian Team:

I think that we played a lot better than yesterday making less mistakes, but it was not easy to play against a team as is Korea, young but ambitious and determined. This was a great training for us for the Finals as we are already thinking about the future matches and opponents. It is difficult to play when result is not of importance and that is why I am so glad that we won tonight. Now we have a difficult task to play against excellent teams, playing great volleyball.

 

Mr. Ho-Chul KIM, Head Coach of the Team of Korea commented:

I have to congratulate the Serbian Team for their victory and wish them to achieve very best in the World League Finals hoping that next year when they come to play, the team will be more experience and able to take much more than one set per game. He also thanked the host and wished them good luck and a lot of success in the Finals.

 

Mr. Igor Kolakovic, Head Coach of the Serbian Team:

Not having much to add, I have to say that we improved the game as we have planned, the service, reception, although the concentration was not in continuation in situations of easy counterattacks of the very determined and motivated Korean Team. I am glad that we succeeded being the first in our group, and if we continue the good form and improve the concentration we hope to be able to succeed in the Finals as we have a lot of difficult matches that await us. This is a good preparation and announcement for the Finals in ARENA which will be completely a different story.
