The future of the Slovak coach Adrián Guľa on the bench of Pilsen footballers in the highest Czech competition is currently more than questionable. Victoria did not get the autumn part of the season and the day before Christmas she lost at home to the defending champion and league leader Slavia Prague 0: 1.
Pilsen is in the table up to the 9th position with the loss of fifteen points to the first place. “Ninth place is very, very bad and clearly does not correspond to the ambitions of the club and the quality of the players,” said Guľa after Thursday’s loss, according to the iDnes.cz website.
The head coach of Pilsen underlined that the results did not come despite the fact that his charges went to the maximum. “Already in November we handed out Christmas presents, but apart from Slovácko no opponent was better than us. We lost simple matches and easy points. It is very bad and I am responsible for it,” remarked Adrián Guľa.
It is currently questionable whether he will return to the helm of Pilsen after the Christmas holidays. The management of the club may soon remove him from office, he has been whispering about it for some time. However, the opposite may also be true. On Tuesday evening, Jindřich Trpišovský, the coach of the winning Slavia Prague, stood up for the defense of the Slovak coach. “I don’t want Pilsen to get too involved, but in general I would like to have more patience with coaches in the Czech Republic,” Trpišovský remarked according to iDnes.cz
Directly to Guľa’s address, he remarked: “Adrián is a top man, once we met on holiday, we spent some time together and talked a lot about football. He is extremely passionate about it, I have already watched his work in Žilina. I advise him among top experts. . “
Despite the abysmal point difference in the table, coach Slavia does not think that Pilsen is just out of the game for the title. “Last year we also won in Pilsen 1-0 and in the autumn we also led by 16 points and finally in the summer there was a difference of six points. I think that in winter they can be put together, it is definitely not decided yet,” added Trpišovský.
