After the victory of his team over Napredak, Vojvodina’s chief Nenad Lalatović stated that his team played the way he wants and expects only in the second half.
Vojvodina has beaten Napredak today with a score of 2-1 (1-1), in the 17th round of the Super League of Serbia.
– Congratulations to both teams on the played game. In the announcement of the match, I said that Napredak, under the guidance of my colleague, plays only better and better. In the last round they played a fantastic game against Čukarički, which is also a phenomenal team, when they dominated and absolutely deservedly won. That was telling us that we have to be careful about this match, in which we entered the way we agreed: aggressively, strongly and highly, in an attempt to pursue them make a mistake – says Lalatović.
When Vojvodina took the lead in the 10th minute, many thought that the match will not have an uncertain finish.
– We scored a quick goal, but unfortunately, after a bad pass, their player ran on the right side and made a cross, although we worked to keep an eye on their counter leg and not allow them to go in the middle of the pitch. Zec took advantage of that phenomenal cross and so they came back into the game, although from the moment we scored we were stalled for about 20 minutes and I felt that we will concede a goal. At half-time I talked to the players and told them what I wanted, and I think in the second half we really looked like the real Vojvodina, which has to play like that in every match. Eze hit a post, Bojić had a 100% chance, and in the end God rewarded us with scoring and wining three big points – says Lalatović.
He paid tribute to his team for everything it has done so far this season.
– We are back in second position and I am very pleased because we have won 36 points, which is amazing. That praise goes to my players, to whom I congratulate as much as to our fans – said Lalatović.
In the next round, Vojvodina will play against Rad in Belgrade.
