Head coach Dragan Jevtić is pleased with the way the players have fulfilled their obligations:
“We used this stay in Zenica for quality work. The girls played a control game today, and tomorrow we have another training session. We can be satisfied with what we have done and the players have fulfilled all the tasks we have set before them. We had the opportunity to see some new players from abroad in action. They have all been shown to have quality and some are seriously imposing themselves on being part of this team. Before all of them are the sisters Elvisa and Elma Smajić, as well as goalkeeper Somea Položen.”
Jevtić also commented on the physical fitness of the players in the championship break:
“We have had a lot of discussions on that subject and that is one of the great weaknesses of our team. In terms of quality, we can match the leading European teams with knowledge and talent. However, as far as physical fitness is concerned, we are left behind. The championship ended a month ago, they are not in the training process and physical fitness is not at the desired level. I believe that they now have enough motivation to qualify for the elite round, and that they will work individually to be at the best possible physical level. It is a good circumstance that the elite round tournament will be held in April, when the championship is underway, so I believe we will be at an enviable level in this segment as well.”
Today’s control match was also watched by the “A” women’s national team head coach, Samira Hurem.
