Miroslav Đukić on EL draw:
– I think it`s a pretty even group with all teams capable of reaching next stage.
– I hoped for one top opponent so that we can see where we stand against such teams. But, we got three almost even teams and they all deserve great respect. It`s on us to get ready for group stage the best we can. We`ll analyse all our opponents and I`m sure we`ll play to win each and every game. We got big burden off our backs qualifying for group stage and I hope we can show full potential. Two seasons ago, we were minutes away from reaching last 32 of EL.
– We hoped we could draw someone like Arsenal but I would say this is a good draw for us as I believe we can stand up to all three of our opponents. I think we stand good chances of progressing through.
– It`s a good draw and we can stand up to all of them if we are fully focused and if we play as we did in Hungary yesterday. Such approach and attitude from the go means we shouldn`t have any fears.
