In the opening round of the new season we welcome AS Trenčín
We will start the new league league of Fortuna with a match on the home pitch. The opponent of our footballers will be AS Trenčín.
The summer break is short, no two months have passed, and the Fortuna League will reopen its gates. Thanks to the great second part of the season, we have achieved our goal perfectly - stayed in the league. Even this summer, we have not avoided changing, whether by player or coach. In the new season our team will lead Michal Ščasný. “I see it positively given the fact that another interesting first league offer has come. It pleased me. As I said last time, I look forward to working with guys,” said the new coach FK Senica.
We will start the new league season on the home pitch as well as last year. AS Trenčín - the team, which was somewhat surprisingly stayed in the Fortuna league thanks to the play-off. Can we expect “new” Trenčín in the new season? “I think yes. They knew where they had a problem last season and strengthened those positions. Because of this, they played for the rescue last season. Good reinforcements have come, whether David Depetris, who is a goal striker or Ryan Koolwijk, who can give the game an idea. We have to fight with them in the way, that we want to win this game,” explained 40-year-old coach FK Senica.
Last season, thanks to the new league playing model, we met four times against the team from the “Čakov” castle. Two times our opponent rejoiced in the win, two times does same our team - we won against them two times in superstructure part of the league. In the last home confrontation we won 4:0.
“It´s a new season, Trenčín has strengthened. We also have new players in the team who are of good quality. I believe we play a good match and manage to score again. A quality trainer who knows our strengths came to the team. We work hard on our goals on the training,” Frank Castaneda said before the game against AS Trencin.
To date, we have recorded the arrival of eight summer strengths in our team. Tomáš Košút, who came to us from Spartak Trnava, should give his experience to the team at the position of centre-back. An interesting player is Joss Didiba. The Cameroonian footballer can played on several positions in the lineup. In the new season, we will also rely on the experience of the Croatian midfielder Lovre Cvek, who has played more than 150 matches in the highest Slovenian competition over the past five years. Many fans of the club also enjoyed the return of our academy player Denis Baumgartner, who will wear the FK Senica jersey again after more than five years. The talented midfielder Luis Ramirez came from Venezuela, while the fast-moving Nigerian pair of footballers Tenton Yenne and Eneji Peter Moses will be on the wings. In the attack, Sadam Sulley, who knows the Fortuna League from two years in the MFK Zemplín Michalovce team, should help his team with his goals. The Czech goalie Vojtěch Vorel - AC Sparta Prague´s main player will continue in the club.
The match will be led by three referees: Ziemba - Tomčík, Ádám.
