Partizan won Indjija 5-0 in a round 5 home league encounter with goals from Natcho, Zdjelar and hat-trick from Asano. We spoke to 25-year old hat-trick hero after the game:
-I`m always motivated and I didn`t lack motivation tonight. If there was something to additionally motivate me, I would use that all the time. I`m happy to score hat-trick but I know I can still improve my game, said Asano.
-What really means to me is great support from all my teammates and coaching staff. I heard my goals thrilled sidelined Soumah and Sadiq who was subbed before I bagged hat-trick. But, all the boys are right there for me and I feel like part of this family from the day one. I`m more relaxed now, everything is in place.
Partizan looks quite good performance-wise at home?
-We love playing at home as our pitch surface is really good and it means a lot when ball can be passed around easily. I`m used to away grounds now but I always prefer our home. We missed our fans but we all had to adjust to current status and I hope things will get back to normal at some point. The more responsible we are, the quicker the things will return to normal.
Partizan plays EL round 1 game against RFS midweek?
So far, everything we know about RFS is what Bagnack told us. RFS is not a resounding name but they are not a joke either. They won Olimpija and we should be more than cautious. We start thinking about them tomorrow and we need to put all our focus on Thursday`s match. Such opponents can be so dangerous and able to shock you. It`s a one-legged tie and pressure is even higher.
Three fingers up in the air?
-It was spontaneous, I didn`t know about Serbian symbolics. But, I`m pleased to score three goals and that number three has even more special meaning here.
