Vardar handball team coach Raul Gonzalez said that he couldn't be prouder of his team, after winning the first place in their Champions League group. On Sunday Vardar beat Kristianstad in the final match of their Group B 32:29.
"The opponent played well and was motivated. We were prepared for their fast pace ad we knew we'll have problems in handling them. I urged my team not to let go in the second half, knowing that Kristianstad will play with full force during the entire game. I couldn't be happier with the first group place. Now we can take a break and prepare for the coming games", said Gonzalez. Vardar now skips the first knock-out round and goes straight in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
