He has hundreds of matches behind him, but when, after nineteen years, an experienced hockey player in a Motor jersey appeared in the Budvar arena, he was overcome with a slight nervousness. “At first yes, but then I thought I would enjoy it. I had a lot of respect for it, to jump from the regional league to the extra league, to such a match. I don’t want to cheer, but I think a lot of people would I hope that I helped the boys at least a little to three points, “said Novotný on the website of the České Budějovice club.
The move four competitions higher simply had to be known. “The transition was extremely difficult. But it’s a lot about setting up in my head. I’ve been to a couple of trainings with the boys, but training is completely different from the match. The next match is waiting for us on Friday, now we’ll rest will continue, “said the former representative.
What will the continuation of the Motor jersey look like? Novotny left that open. “We’ll see, I came to help because of the wretch, let’s talk and let everyone be surprised. My work in Switzerland still has an impact on the continuation (editor’s note – he works as a player agent at Global Management Group), it can be combined, but it’s not easy, “admitted an experienced player.
He could be excited about getting a lot of space from the coaches, he went to overpowering and weakening. “I was surprised, but I had huge reserves in the defensive zone and for bulls. But it was to be expected that I would not lead it, but it was not bad. I was short of breath, I knew at my feet that it would not be anything extra. He played I was as best I could, “commented his performance Novotný, whom his loved ones came to support for the match.
“There was a family, a mother with a father, my son, who could see me after a long time. He didn’t make sense of it before, he was small, I’m very happy for that, and that was my driving force,” Novotný added.
