Metz star confident ahead of EHF Cup final first leg
Liščević: "We are stronger than anyone at home"
The best young player of last season’s Women’s EHF Champions League, Kristina Liščević, has continued her good performances this season with Metz Handball.
“A new deal is signed with mutual satisfaction. I am happy in Metz with the way of living and of course with my team and individual progress.
eurohandball.com: France became the perfect place for the Women's handball and transfer by transfer probably the best league in Europe?
Kristina Liščević: I spoke with the people about that. If you follow the championship, you can see that there are no unbeatable teams.
eurohandball.com: Metz HB is still in the game for the “triple crown“ – domestic Championship, National Cup and EHF Cup?
Kristina Liščević: We finished regular part of the Championship at the first place. We played very well during the whole season, especially at home, where we didn't lose a match. Our sold out arena is one of the most important reasons for that success. We will play the cup final against Dijon on May 25 in Paris “Bercy“ and yes, we have a good chance to celebrate a “triple crown“ at the end of the season.
eurohandball.com: As the Women’s EHF Champions League 2011/12 best young player, your wish is probably to play Europe’s strongest competition again?
Kristina Liščević: Champions League is a dream of every player, no matter how old or young they are. There are no proper words to express what winning the competition would be like.
eurohandball.com: Before that, you have a chance to win a trophy in the EHF Cup against Danish side Team Holstebro on 5 and 12 May. What are your expectations?
Kristina Liščević: That would be the most important matches in the careers of the majority of my teammates. Most of the players don’t have that experience of the big final on their CV.
