“Daniel Křetínský was in the referee’s booth at half-time. It’s wrong, he has no business there, he has to be punished. Nevertheless, I’ll stand up for him a little bit. His heart won, he showed how much he loves football,” the former striker tells Aktuálně.cz Petr Švancara commenting on the events in the football Fortuna: League.
Viktoria Plzeň, the defending champion and autumn champion, lost two points again, but I wouldn’t write her off the fight for the title just yet. We still have quite a few matches to come, the superstructure will come.
Even if Slavia and Sparta are in decent form, I wouldn’t write off Pilsen just yet, a seven point loss is nothing so terrible. But I’d rather say that I wish she wasn’t out of the title fight yet…
I admit that I don’t trust her very much anymore. However, we want the league to be interesting until the end – if it were to be the case that someone leads by ten points, then the fans do not enjoy it. When my Brno on Letná entered the playing field, I thought to myself – there are tall boys there, they could handle it.
I mainly encouraged them in my mind not to make standard shots and guard the centers into the goal. It was nothing valid. The Spartans have the players for this, an excellent run after Ladi Krejčí’s corner, Kuchta showed his shooting form with the second cross.
At the same time, the match started excellently, we were in the lead, I cheered with joy in the VIP stand. When it turned around, I got a proper thrashing from the nearby Spartans. That is Brňák’s lot on the main stand in Prague. However, I’m not completely disappointed, Zbrojovka was not an easy opponent for Sparta.
I appreciate that referee Marek Radina recorded what happened during the break, that Sparta’s owner, Daniel Křetínský, a businessman from Brno, came to their booth. I know it’s the referee’s duty, but we know how it goes with us…
It’s wrong, the official has no business there. And it’s all the more inexcusable that this case happened recently, when Jablonec boss Míra Pelta approached the referees. Křetínský will be fined, it will be dealt with.
I don’t agree with him, but I’ll give him some support anyway. His little heart won, he showed how much he loves football. He wanted to know immediately why referees made such decisions in contested situations.
He didn’t go there with a bag or any lobbying, he just wanted an explanation. It’s not allowed, but even I went to see them several times in a lower competition. Even during the break. Mostly apologizing for how I behaved, but I also sometimes wanted to know why they whistled.
But I repeat again – it’s wrong, it’s unacceptable, he broke the rules, he must be punished. I also know he has a stake in West Ham United in London and I can’t imagine him doing this in the English Premier League. However, I emphasize again that the referee deserves the greatest respect for not hiding anything.
Slavia is invincible at home, even Olomouc, undefeated so far in the spring, who licked four goals, recognized this. It is analyzed why Slavia is not doing so well abroad. The problem with her is that she doesn’t have a quality pitch. He loves a nice flat surface, how is it not quite the same, he already struggles with it. He wants to play technical football, nice passes and actions, not just kicking balls and fighting. Let’s be happy that such a team is here, and I’m very curious to see how the derby will turn out.
Bohemka is not a surprise for me, I already praised her last season, but she is now walking in an incredible way. I don’t think the game room would be at that level, in some phases of the match it’s more combativeness and commitment.
However, it has decent players who know what they want to play and, above all, score points. Everything is working out for them now, but that is their merit. They have a coach who I said was pulled out of the pub, certainly not in a bad way, he understands football and knows how to work with players. She makes the fans happy and I wish her a lot of success and especially the new stadium.
České Budějovice stopper Lukáš Havel sent his teammates in Zlín to ten at the start of the match. The coaches always emphasize that he should have let the opponent have a chance, and there was also a goalkeeper there, the goal did not have to come. It’s still more playable to lose than to play the entire match weakened.
However, those who have not played football will not understand. The defender tries to prevent the chance as possible. After the match, everyone is smart, they calmly look at the situation on video and it is immediately clear what someone should have done. Even the player sees it. But at that moment he is solving something, it is ultimately a bad decision, but I understand him.
Even Teplice, weakened, played for a long time and kept mega-important points against Hradec. It is natural that the expelled team will die, if a little luck is added, it can even work out. Like Teplice now. And I don’t think that Hradec would underestimate the match, as sometimes happens with a team that is an overpowering team.
Hradec is well managed, I really appreciate coach Miroslav Koubek. The players do not have a big football name, but they give it a try and entertain the fans. I’m already looking forward to them playing in their stadium next year. They will become even stronger.
