Each phrase from Eidevall’s pre-Juventus presser | Press convention | Information

Jonas Eidevall spoke to the media forward of our newest Girls’s Champions League check towards Juventus on the Allianz Stadium on Thursday night.

The boss fielded questions on our nice begin to the European group stage, what the crew realized from our loss towards Manchester United and Beth Mead’s ACL harm.

on whether or not the variety of vital accidents in our squad would require a shift…

I believe you possibly can’t take issues as a right. I believe one in every of my greatest reflections on the Man United sport was that. Whenever you change gamers, you are not solely altering one participant; you are mainly placing out a brand new crew. And that signifies that in all the pieces you do, it’s important to begin from the fundamentals. You may’t take as a right that simply because we did one thing three weeks in the past, that can mechanically occur once more.

So that is what we have to work on: to not neglect the fundamentals. So we’re constructing block by block. I believe I made a mistake earlier than the United sport with that, given that point was brief. We’ll put that proper.

on whether or not an absence of rotation contributed to Beth Mead’s harm on Saturday…
It is a good query. It is exhausting to reply after all as a result of you do not know all of the variables. Participant loading and fatigue are clearly issues that we continuously monitor and we’re involved about, so if that had been apparent to us main as much as this sport, we would not have performed her.

However then it nonetheless can occur which makes it so troublesome for us. Whenever you see the participant’s schedule of video games, particularly for gamers taking part in tournaments, it does not assist the harm scenario.

on how the membership is supporting Beth…

The crew and all of the folks across the membership have been so supportive. We’ll look after her and do the perfect for her throughout a troublesome time like this.

on whether or not Beth’s harm provides extra strain to the remainder of the squad…

The accountability within the crew is all the time shared. In a crew sport, it is by no means a person’s output that’s measured. It is all the time the crew that can have an output. I clearly want to pick out the crew that may create pretty much as good an output as attainable collectively. That is the problem that we’ve in entrance of us right here

on the duty of going through Juventus…

They seem to be a very aggressive crew. I believe Juventus as a membership within the Girls’s Champions League have constantly proven over the previous few seasons that they’ll compete with any crew in Europe. They have been doing very effectively so we’ve plenty of respect for that. We perceive and we’re totally conscious that it’s going to take an excellent efficiency from us tomorrow to ensure that us to get the outcome.

on how Serie A compares to the Girls’s Tremendous League…

I see large development in Italian membership soccer on the ladies’s facet. I believe there are numerous groups which are aggressive. I see thrilling video games once I wish to watch the Italian league. You can too see within the league desk that it’s totally aggressive there now, with the highest six groups that may qualify for the second spherical of the season. So it is positively one of many leagues in Europe that’s most quickly enhancing.

on how necessary it’s to keep up our momentum from the primary two group video games…

That is what we’re right here for. To do our highest to attempt to obtain that. Soccer is quick in each instructions, each once you win and once you lose and we wish to have a very completely different efficiency as a crew than we had towards Manchester United final Saturday. In order that’s a very powerful factor for us and it is a wonderful alternative to get this proper right here tomorrow.

on the Juventus participant he is most excited to see…

I all the time prefer to see my previous participant play: Sara Gunnarsdottir. However I heard that she’s not accessible to play tomorrow. I nonetheless hope I will meet her. However I additionally look ahead to seeing her play once more. I believe she is a good aggressive participant who embodies that spirit and numerous the issues that I consider are necessary in soccer.

on Lina Hurtig lacking the return to her former membership…

Nice expertise, Lina. I believe her harm got here at a extremely unhealthy time – if an harm ever can come at an excellent time. This was a extremely unhealthy time as a result of I felt like Lina constantly was beginning to put collectively some actually good performances in coaching. And once you see that, you realize it is solely a matter of time earlier than you possibly can see them shine by way of in matches as effectively.

So I felt that momentum was constructing and I used to be actually wanting ahead to seeing her play extra for us. Then the harm got here and now we hope she will be able to get again as rapidly as attainable once more, to start out constructing once more.
