With Pelt we sat down, but Jablonec not buy, says the head of the Dutch club

Adrianus Kruf does not possess Czech citizenship, but my second home wishes. Except the match with the Netherlands, though … “mutual matches with the Czech Republic have seen more, but unfortunately most of them where I was, the Netherlands lost. Maybe he good luck, “he laughs.

First, you have to say, how did it happen that you played with Pierre van Hooijdonk …
“It was the youth in Halsteren. It is a year younger, we knew only from football but also from school. Throughout the summer we had dug, practicing free kicks that made him famous when he won the UEFA Cup with Feyenoord. Even in youth, we then met as rivals, then went to Roosendaal, who advanced to the top league and I stayed in the third league. Then I went to Germany. Two years ago, I met him in Lisbon in the Champions League. We did not have much time, we reminisce on old times. We look a lot differently … (laughs)

You meet you on the field? You Přihrával his goals?
“Yes, it worked it well. I centered and he gave a goal with his head, it was not a mistake. (laughs) I’ve always played the middle of the midfielder until then my coach, who led the Dutch amateur representation, shifted to the right wing because I was fast. Then when I left during the war to Germany, where they had our Air Force base, the first time I started playing in attack. ”

How to develop your career in Germany?
“With the team we base our amateur team played against Bremen and I get together with another guy singled out and we started to train with them. This guy was Arie van Lent, which is then pushed in the Bundesliga (played for Bremen, Mönchengladbach or Eintracht Frankfurt – Ed. Ed.), And now does youth in Mönchengladbach. ”

You believed that in Germany the break through?
“I’ve experienced in the Netherlands, that the differences between the players were great, everyone knew how to dig. In youth I took about three years with Henk Vos, it was unbelievable how he scored. Then he played for Standard Liege, Sochaux and Feyenoord, talent is manifested with him more than with van Hooijdonk. Besides talent, it depends on other factors: if you have a coach in popularity, do you have a name. I paid extra to how they say … good life? ”

Your lifestyle?
“Yes, diet. (laughs) Maybe I did not come without apology to training and when it happened a second time, they said that’s the way it is. Then I played in Germany a fourth league three years I combined with high school football in Osnabrück, until I ended up in some twenty-three. I then started up again in thirty-seven in Černolice, it is a paradox. “(Laughs)

When you return to the Netherlands, you ask people often on Czech football?
“Actually, Netherlands Visit sporadically, only a few times a year. But the closest friends from high school course quiz, football is all interests. None of them knew Jablonec, but when we played in the European league, Ajax, I invited them and they watched as we were a match for him. Otherwise, how can I go to look at PSV Eindhoven, whose fan since I was seven years old. The local management already knows about us, asking questions, he reads them, Mr. Pelt. I can feel them interested in Czech football is still with us a good reputation. In the Netherlands played a lot of good players, whether before Pepa Chovanec, Galásek, Grygera or later Kalas, now there is Václav Černý. Eindhoven had an extra interest Pavel Nedved, but unfortunately it did not happen, he went to Italy. It is our great idol. ”

Red after Spengler: Referee whistle all here, not like us

You have defeated the Russian cities of Yekaterinburg, lost to Lugano and Canada. You say goodbye to your head held high?
“I think yes. Although we lost the Canadian high except for Spengler Cup we left a good impression. As we are on the ice, so our fans in the stands. I hope that next year again invited and we will do even a better job than this year. It’s great here, everyone would like to play a tournament. Full stadium, all around the same smiles, the party at the stadium, mountains, great cast of teams … Wow. The level of the game is close matches representation. I believe that the local tempo can also transfer to Extraliga. And until the new year, we will compete at home with Liberec that we will not have to substitute. ”

Now, to match with Canada. This indicates that the 1: 5 for the difference in strength of both teams, or not?
“Canada has a great team here. Result emerged from the first period, when we are just vlítli, we played a lot of weakness in which they twice struck. We suddenly had to push harder to finish, opening the game, trying to renumber. This resulted in errors in defense and then another goal in our network. ”

Canada played a third game in four days, you duel the third in three days. It’s the beginning of the game influence?
“Especially in the first period. They flew into it, we had a disqualification. Nothing we did not give up, second and third period, we filed a pretty good performance but lacked the goal. Play with Canada twenty minutes is not weakening, it can not win. The chances of another score but we have had. ”

In what was a major force in Canada?
“They are straight, are emphatic, pushing the goal, everything just shooting at the goal, that was the main difference.”

On the ice were also emotions, especially after a foul unpunished high stick on you, after which you bled from the mouth …
“Judge not exactly přehlídnul, but otherwise I think the whistle well. But the trend is there other than us. Here Judges assess each intervention as a foul poles, it is not easy to adapt to the snap of the fingers on another meter. We can take from that lesson home that will not stick at all to use and hopefully we’ll play less weakening in Extraliga and we will see thanks to better results. ”
