The theme of Saturday’s football league hit is given by: Spicy return of Pavel Vrba to Pilsen in the role of coach of the Victorian hated Sparta. When the man who led Pilsen to three titles and three times to the Champions League sat on the Letna bench in February, Victoria’s supporters could not name him. Some in affect threatened to cut the willow that the coach had once planted at Doosan Arena. The tree by the stadium is still standing, emotions have subsided. However, it is in the stars how Pilsen will accept the previously adored coach …
“After the initial extremely negative reactions during the move to the bench of the most unsympathetic club in the Czech Republic, it is clear to me that it is simply a business, and Mr. Vrba simply nodded at the lucrative bait. Of course, he has a big share in the successes in Pilsen and I have no idea what the fans’ reactions will be. Personally, I think that part of the Pilsen stands will applaud him. “I would also applaud if he arrived on a bus other than the Letna bus,” says one of Viktoria’s rock fans, Luděk Hromádka.
“Beautiful titles, beautiful cups with Viktorka. But Vrbova gloriola is now getting lost in the red mist, “colleagues from the ranks of Pilsen fans wrote on kejo forums in February. Vrba and Victoria gave them golden times, world clubs Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City came to Pilsen. under the boiler traditional boiler backwards.
Now, when he cut it off in Letná this summer after advancing through Rapid Vienna in the preliminary round of the Champions League, he burned a lot of Victorians. Including club icon David Limberský, who ended his professional career after last season.
“This is a Pilsen celebration, let him do something different on Letná,” Limberský told Vrba in an interview with Sport.cz. “I completely agree with Limba. when the Spartans base themselves on them, “adds Hromádka.
While until recently the fights with Sparta were direct clashes for the title, currently Pilsen has completely different concerns. Its owner Adolf Šádek is looking for a buyer to whom the club would sell. “After ten years at the top, something like this could be expected. For me personally, nothing changes. Even so, I will be looking forward to every match, beer before the U Salzmannů matches or at Parkán. And for football discussions about how the match will turn out or who should play and who, on the contrary, has nothing to do in the line-up. So I have one big wish for Saturday. Players, show that it is still early to depreciate you. And give me a post-match view of the sour coach Vrba, standing near the Pilsen substitute, “concludes Hromádka.
