Brazilian line player Dara Diniz speaks about her and Hypo's ambitions ahead of the new campaign in the EHF Champions League
Every change needs time
Next Monday Austrian champions Hypo NÖ will start their preparation for the new season. One part of the players will start in Südstadt under second trainer Feri Kovács, whilst the eight Brazilians will prepare in their native country under supervision of new coach Morten Soubak.
In the Group A of the Women's EHF Champions League 2013/14 the reigning Cup Winners's Cup holders will take on the defending champions Győri Audi ETO KC, German champions Thüringer HC and the qualifier from Group 3.
Hypo NÖ´s pivot and one of the Brazilian contingent Fabiana "Dara" Diniz gave us a summary about last season and she also reveals about this season´s goals and life in Austria.
Last year the club did not get back to the elite top eight in the Champions League but won the Cup Winners' Cup which already shows some progress. I believe this year the club can go a little further, as being among the eight best teams in Europe.
Getting a great result with Brazil at the World Championship in Serbia would be another task. We have to work hard to achieve those goals.
The head-coach of the Brazilian women national team Morten Soubak is replacing András Németh at the coaching position. Should this be considered as an advantage since Hypo’s squad is composed mostly of Brazilian national team players?
Since 2012 you are a player of Hypo. How hard is for you and the other Brazilians in the team to adapt to the Austrian style of life?
