Eitan Tibi, the Yellow & Blue central defender spoke to the Club’s Official Website prior to heading for Slovenia and a second leg date on Thursday night at 19:30 against Gorica. He discussed taking more of a leadership role, Carlos Garcia and his feelings heading into this week’s match:

“We certainly have an advantage after the last match but we are coming into this contest to perform well and not to be complacent. We have to make sure we show up and not think about the potential next match but concentrate and focus only on the game against Gorica. That way everything will be ok.”

About the opponent:

“There were definitely times when Gorica had some opportunities to hurt us and we have to make sure that this won’t happen on Thursday. Like I said before we can’t be complacent.”

Carlos Garcia leaving the Club:

“On a personal level Carlos leaving was not easy especially after playing with him the last four seasons. It was a lot of fun to play beside him but in football it’s not always in your hands. He decided to move on and I wish him a tremendous amount of success.”

Taking more of a leadership role:

“It’s definitely positive pressure for me which I enjoy and I hope that I’ll do it the best that I can.”
