Roberto Parrondo – Vardar coach
Victory is the most important. We needed the points and we are satisfied. I am responsible for our bad game. After the difficult match against Kielce I wanted to rest my players. That is why we played with a combined team.
Marko Kizic – Vardar goalkeeper
It is always difficult to play against Metalurg. We were the favourites in this match and we were under pressure. We tried to give our best and we won at the end. I was preparing well for this match.
