After the meeting, the coach of the Danish team, Jacob Neestrup, explained that he was satisfied with his team, although it could have created more chances. His statements were translated on an ongoing basis by the interpreter present at the conference, which … unfortunately he did bizarre error.
I was not calm at the beginning of the match. I believe the match should start 15-20 minutes later. And that’s because some things were falling onto the pitch. Here, UEFA should step in, delay the match and clean up to create the right conditions

Rakow Czestochowa – FC Copenhagen. Jacob Neestrup called for the game to be delayed
So one of the journalists decided to ask what objects we were talking about, because from the perspective of the stands no incident was visible. Then it turned out that there was a mistake in the translation, and the trainer it was a storm. “Is it on Twitter yet?” Jacob Neestrup asked jokingly, then added seriously:
I was afraid to go to the touchline because of the storm. I just wanted the match to be delayed 15-20 minutes before it started. In Denmark, we had several examples of football matches where players were struck by lightning. It doesn’t matter to me whether it’s amateur football or play-offs for promotion to the Champions League. The safety of the players is the most important thing. That’s what I’ve tried to say to the referees and I’ve said it many times
Trainer FC Copenhagen he also admitted that his team is in an excellent position ahead of the second leg.
– I am satisfied after the match. Not everything was as it should be, but we played well in the opponent’s half. We did not allow Raków to get into goal situations and we have a very good starting point before the rematch No, it wasn’t a happy victory. We played very well against a very good opponent. Raków had chances, but there were few goal situations – he said.
The second leg, which will determine promotion to the Champions League, will be played on Wednesday, August 30 at 21.00 at the famous Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.
