Adama Keita: 'A real physical challenge'
On Sunday afternoon, Paris Saint-Germain Handball defeated Holstebro in the last match of their Danish tour (28-34). Jesus Gonzalez, Rodrigo Corrales and Adama Keita spoke about Les Rouge et Bleus' victory.
Jesus Gonzalez (Paris Saint-Germain Handball assistant coach):
"It was a good game to try things. The team we were playing against are very good and were in the Final4 of the last EHF Cup. The first half was very good, especially in defence. During the second half, we lost our concentration and our opponent came back, but we were able to increase the intensity and win."
Rodrigo Corrales (Paris Saint-Germain Handball goalkeeper):
"We knew that Holstebro are a team that like to run and are very fast. We did a very good job in defence and attack, with 23 goals scored. After that, we got a little tired, which is normal during pre-season. We are happy with our games, even though we lost in Kiel."
Adama Keita (Paris Saint-Germain Handball left-winger):
"We played against a great team. We had a good first half and we were well ahead at the break. The second was more complicated, especially in terms of shooting efficiency. But we fixed that and made sure of the victory. This kind of game allows us to get in shape. There was a real physical challenge. We can therefore prepare in the right way for the next rounds and the Champions Trophy."
