Vojvodina player Veljko Simić believes that his team is ready for the start of the season and believes in a positive result in the first round against Red Star.
The Old Lady opens the season with a match against Red Star in Belgrade, and Simić believes that Voša can achieve a positive result.
– The match with Red Star is the biggest challenge for every player in our championship. It is a four-time champion, which, unlike other teams, changed the squad the least this summer. They are well-coordinated, strong in all positions, they have preserved the skeleton of the team, but far from it that we have no chance. As they say, “the champion is not threatened”, but I am convinced that we will have something to show and that we can surprise at Marakana – said Simić.
Voša’s offensive player also believes that his team is facing another successful season.
– The change of the squad, in my opinion, is extremely positive, because now we have an ideal balance between young and talented players and those who are more experienced who lead the team. Vojvodina has the greatest ambitions every year and we have set ourselves big goals for this season. We will always fight for the very top, we are going to win every game, because that befits the reputation of our club – Simić pointed out.
The Old Lady will play in the qualifications for placement in one European competition this summer as well. Voša’s first rival in the newly formed Conference League competition is Lithuanian Panevezys.
– The rival is not so well known to us, but I am sure that after the match with the Red Star, we will dedicate ourselves in detail to Panevezys and that we will be ready for that match. There is no right to correction in Europe, we have to be concentrated and go step by step, I hope so until the group stage – concluded Veljko Simić.
The match Red Star – Vojvodina is on the program on Friday at 8 PM, and the Old Lady will then play against Panevezys on Thursday, July 22, at 5:30 PM.
