This weekend will be played the first matches of the Superior Category for 2021. No surprises are expected, as the teams will have their attendance, with some changes brought by the winter market. Of course, this week's uprising is between Vllaznia and Teuta. The people of Shkodra are at the top of the ranking and want the next success, but this time they have a hard time because Teuta is a "strong bone". Meanwhile, Vllaznia has made an important approach in the market, approaching a player who was previously from Tirana. Even the footballer himself has expressed irony towards the white and blues, believing that he has chosen the right team and that he has come to Shkodra to win the champion title. Thus, after it was made official by the sports director Matko Djarmati, Albion Avdijaj appeared at the press conference presenting them as the newest approach of Vllaznia. Former national team striker Shpresa has emphasized that he has been in contact with Shkodra for 3 months and that he chose Vllaznia due to very good relations with coach Brdaric. "I have nothing to say about what happened in Tirana. I have closed this chapter and I do not care anymore. Let's look ahead! I have seen the team play and I have to show myself. I have been in contact with Thomas for two or three months, I had a professor in the second team of Wolfsburg. So I have confidence and I have nothing more to say just to show it on the field. I do not make promises for goals. I am confident that Vllaznia can win the title because I know how the professor works and I see that they are a team, that all together want to achieve something ", said Avdijaj.
Berdaric: Everyone wants to overtake us, but us fast
The coach of Vllaznia, Tomas Brdaric is aware that the expectations of Shkodra have increased and that the team already has the task to defend the first place this year. In the pre-match conference with Teuta, he explained that now everyone was looking to get his team to the top and that made the job harder. "We started the year by filling the team with a good striker and we are always looking forward to what has passed. We are a team that will improve and continue its work and dedication. We want to show appearances like last year. We are in a position where everyone has to catch us and beat us, we are in the first place and we have to protect her and we will show it to Teuta tomorrow. We know Teuta, we have seen how they play and we think that we have good chances in our field and we must do our best to beat Teuta. It is a very strong team, it has an experienced coach, Cup winner. "I think the team has a lot of motivation to show that we want to win, it will be a strong match, we must be focused and hungry to win against Teuta", said Berdaric. Furthermore, the German coach of Vllaznia spoke about his team, saying that he has worked with dedication so far. "We started from zero in the summer and I think we have shown everyone in the city that with this dedication and effort, the team is suitable, it is competitive. We know what to do with Matko and the technical staff. Of course the players too, we are a team and I think we are in a situation where when a player is going to leave, we have to approach others and they have to be suitable for the team. This is how the decision was made for Albion. He has character, is a player I know and we made the decision together. "We have to show in transfers not only the ability of the player, but also if he is suitable for the team and that is crucial", he further underlined. In the end, Berdaric spoke about the market, emphasizing that they are not in a hurry to make moves. "We have given many gifts these 6 months. We are not in a hurry to approach players. If we find good players for this club and can pay salaries, we can do something. There is nothing special to talk about at the moment. "When we have something, we will talk," Brdaric added.
