Champions League Final Six, Budapest 2017 (HUN)

Champions League Final
Jug CO Dubrovnik (CRO) v Szolnoki Dozsa-Kozgep (HUN) 5-10

Vjekoslav Kobescak, head coach, Jug:
“It was visible that we didn’t have enough power left for this match. After beating Olympiacos and Recco in two days, our players got tired for the third day and Szolnok is as good team or even better as the previous two. We lacked what drove us in the quarters and semis. I saw on my players that they were slower both in speed and in making decisions. But I cannot say that I am dissatisfied now. We have two fantastic seasons with this team, we earned great results and I hope we can keep the guys together because we have lot more to achieve. Congratulations to Szolnok, they did a fantastic job.”

Zoltan Kosz, assistant coach, Szolnok:
“This is our fourth trophy this season but by no means the most valuable one. Playing one less match than Jug made the difference perhaps, though the first two periods were really tight so the players had to keep their nerves. In the second half we played just great, everything worked. Last year, when we finished third and three outstanding players left the club, many said that we missed our best chance to win the trophy and might never be as close as we had got then. Today it turned out that the saying was still valid: never say never!”

Bronze Medal Match
Pro Recco (ITA) v ZF Eger (HUN) 15-6

Vladimir Vujasinovic, head coach, Recco:
“This is the real face of our team, what we showed in the whole season. We had one bad game and we finished third, though. But this is sport, we have to deal with it and we have to start preparing for next year’s Final Four where we will be the host. Yesterday it was all about pressure – just like a year ago – and we have to take care of that as it cannot happen once more to such a great players.”

Norbert Dabrowski, head coach, Eger:
“The different level in speed made the difference today. Recco played in another class, they have quality players who can decide the matches and today they didn’t leave any chance for us. Perhaps I should say I’m proud of my team as we achieved the best result in our history but now I’m only feeling disappointment.”
