FTC coach Elek: “EHF FINAL4 is a reward”
Across the teams in this season’s EHF Champions League Women, no coach had a longer stint on the same bench than FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria’s Gabor Elek.
One can say that it is a reward which was definitely deserved, because we worked very hard and try to do our best each time. We wanted this qualification, we wanted to progress to the [EHF] FINAL4 and here we are, finally.
It can be a doubled-edge sword for us, of course. The pressure is on us to deliver a good result, because everybody expects us to do good. However, on the other hand, it will be an immense support, an excellent feeling.
We played our home games in Érd and the pressure on the opponents was there with a couple of thousand fans. Imagine what it will be like in Budapest, in one of the most important games of the season.
