Istvan Kovacs: We really have to win

The midfielder knows the importance of Saturday's match at Ferencvaros.

"The most important league match awaits us on Saturday evening against Ferencvaros. For us to have a chance of defending our league title until the final game of this season, we really have to win on Saturday. A difference of 11 or even 8 points would be massive over the last 4 matches. This is why we have not been thinking about anything else but winning. We have shown this season that we know how to play against Fradi. We have won three and drawn one of our four games with them. Another advantage for us could be the Groupama Arena as we have played there several times this season. The pitch and stadium is no unfamiliar to us. When there is a real footballing atmosphere inside a stadium, we tend to pick up good results so I hope that there will be a great atmosphere on Saturday for the teams. We have not lost to Fradi for a year and a half and this is important from the point of the teams reputation. It is true that our cup runs means our fixture list is much more crowded than Ferencvaros, but we have never complained about this and having to play so many games. This will not be the case in the future either as our target is to go as far as we can on all fronts. That would mean us having to play many games. We played a league game against them in December just days after our EL match with Chelsea. We managed to win then and we are preparing to do the same now" - commented Istvan Kovacs ahead of Saturday's game.
