Ilie Stan: “We need points”
Coach Ilie Stan says that the team is doing very well and hopes that the attitude of the players from training will be put into practice and the game. “It is an important match for both teams, we need points, and Steaua comes after two matches in which they did not win. I think a good game will come out, a spectacular game and the team that deserves it will win. The attitude and participation in training is superlative, but we fail to transfer this attitude from training to play. We need time, there are young players, players who do not yet have the experience of the 2nd League. Only by collecting as many points as possible and their morale will be much better “, declared Ilie Stan. For tomorrow’s match, FC Braşov also has some group problems. The match with Steaua is special for Ilie Stan, who worked for many years at Steaua, both as a player and in the technical staff. “It’s history, now I focus on what I have to do in Brasov and I hope that things will go the way we all want,” said Ilie Stan.
