In a Polish interview, Estonian international Kostantin Vassiljev answered some questions about the upcoming clash with Ektraklasa powerhouse that is lagging behind the top spots: Lech Pozan, Kalju’s Summer opponents in UEFA Europa League.
The tradition of the clashes between Lech and Piast is favourable to the former, however Kostja doed not care. ‘History does not matter’ declared bravely the Estonian midfielder and drew a comparison with the shocking goalless draw in San Marino collected with the national team. ‘The players of San Marino did not look at the earlier failures,’ said honestly the 30-year-old international, as the tiny state broke a negative streak of 61 losses. ‘History does not give anyone an advantage in a particular match. It’s all about the very moment the game is played that could make history.’
Lech will certainly be an hard bite for Piast however they are just four points adrift from Gliwice club. ‘I know they have very good players who represent a specific high-level and certainly competing with them will not be easy,’ admitted the player who chose number 84 (his year of birth) at the Piastunki.
Kostja is optimist: ‘In Polish league, anything is possible, therefore, I believe that - despite the difficult conditions - we can achieve.’
