Turkey has come to Podgorica to continue to represent and establish a recognizable system of play, Mirčea Lučescu on Vijesti on March 26, 2018.
On Friday, the Turks defeated the Republic of Ireland 1:0 in Antalya by the goal of Mehmet Topal, and Montenegro shows respect before the tomorrow’s night duel under Gorica hill.
"I know that Montenegro is a good team, but I do not think that they reached their best form yet and they will be better in the future. Our opponent has a young team, and in the next two years, I expect the best results of the team,," Lučesku said.
He’s not hiding – he expects a spectacle in the stadium.
"I believe there will be a real match, a spectacle. I'm also certain that both teams will change in comparison to the previous matches, but I am sure that this will not ruin the match," said the experienced Romanian coach.
Turkish journalists were mostly interested in the atmosphere inside and around the national team and did not care much about the match with Montenegro. Lučesku answered patiently.
"Everyone wants to play for the national team, and everyone thinks they deserve a place, but they can’t all be here. We are in the process of creating the best team, a recognizable game and system in which we will not care much about our opponent, but we will try to dominate. I am sufficiently experienced to know how this is done, but the national team and club play is not the same - we all have to know that, " Lučescu said, and added:
"And against Montenegro and all rivals, I want to see the enthusiasm on the field when it comes to my team. I know we have good players, but we need to create a compact team," said former coach of Galatasaray and Besiktas, who was at the stadium in 1990 in Podgorica. He led Dinamo Bucharest against Partizan.
Jengiz Under, the star of Roma, is questionable for tonight's match.
"Whoever plays will give the maximum," underlined Under and mentioned the current season in Roma:
"The start was hard, mostly due to the lack of knowledge of the Italian language. Now everything comes into its place," said a 20-year-old winger.
