HJK's and head coach Mika Lehkosuo five years ago, started cooperation is coming to its end.
Three league titles, two Finnish cup win and the European league group place in the Club as a coach reached Lehkosuo did not hide their own goals. He wants to move to coach abroad.
– Good when the player reinforcements, even if they come just before the start of the series. I take it as a challenge to myself and the coaching team to me that this is normal in european football. This is a great workout that my next life, 49-year-old Lehkosuo's thinking.
And if the next life begins after this season, Lehkosuo and HJK will want to decide on marriage out with a bang.
– Seventh of January was set for the objectives: the Finnish cup, Finnish veikkausliiga win and a group stage in Europe, Lehkosuo list.
the group stage of a goal before the start of the season is the only time-even HJK.
– it was agreed to coaching with the team, that now don't ask others, but now this goal is set.Cup bloomer
Objectives first will remain unfulfilled. HJK fell to Finnish cup for the winter games after. It is the club's player budget and expectations in relation to very poor performance.
Lehkosuo however, does not seem very worried.
– a Couple of bad results. The couple did not even such a bad game. Lost 0-1 Inter Turku and we were the better team, but Inter scored in the second minute, and obtained good places to in. Honka against lead was 2-0, and we somehow managed to screw it. Not played the mature way and killed the game.
– Always poor results annoying, it is clearly the case. I really solution-oriented people. They were treated and those things then work out. They are already pretty far in history.Reinforcements
Very far in history, however, are not the key players acquired foreign confirm the arrivals.
HJK contracting Nigeria world cup gamblers Elderson Echiéjilén left a paki, hmm 9. march. Norwegian average field man and Harmet Singh incoming 15. march, and the mexican striker Marco Bueno six days later.
All come in the last minute of the new season on the doorstep.
– Aggressive exploration of these three game day starts already mid-October or thereabouts. It took five months, and it is, of course, a little too long. They found good players, but for one reason or another they do not, however, come to us. That's why we're in this situation, Lehkosuo times.
the Size of HJK's success may depend on the above-mentioned trio.
They are three question marks. If they turn out to be for us a clear set watch, so I think we have a very team my six-year HJK-during Lehkosuo blow.HJK's new triad
head Coach Mika Lehkosuo presents HJK's new foreign reinforcements.
"is Able to play left back and wing backs. Left-footed, the ball sure, taiwomainen (Taye Taiwo played for HJK in 2015-2016), calm. The player, who has played at a very high level. Experience in big games."
"the midfielder, who is completely ready to play. He's a tough contender for our young midfield duo of Kaan Kairinen–Sebastian Dahlström. Most will be to play in such a way that two of them are in the ring at the same time."
"a Very good football player. Use well body protection and makes the real-time movements. Read the game well and knows where to move. The bigger question mark is, what's in the box event. He is not physically similar to the cannon than, for example, Alfredo Morelos was. I expected a lot."Young people in
HJK:ta has for years been criticized for the fact that the most talented young people do not get enough responsibility for the representation in the team.
Last season the comet's Lassi Lappalainen rose to stardom only loan RoPSissa, and in march, the 20-year-old pier to see the field A national team qualifying match against Italy.
Now Lappalainen is more responsibility, the last HJK-season before the transfer abroad.
I Waited Lassilta power. It need not always be in the paint supply or paint, it can also be a good attack to start or decisive actions break-in stage. Of course I also expect good defense, Lehkosuo ripping apart.
This season's rising promises to be a 20-year-old put on defensive Kevin Kouassivi-Benissan midfielders Ollis (18 years) and Santeri Väänänen (17).
the Big, 19-year-old Eetu peer to is already envisaged a significant role in HJK's attack.
– the beginning of the Season to see the "Epa" field in one role or another. Your game performances in relation to other look how much minutes, Lehkosuo line.Eetu no match has the potential to rise to HJK's number one aggressor. Matti Raivio / AOPValmentajaputki
