Jakov Blagaić, one of the youngest Hajduk players who joined a winter training camp in Turkey, played the first half in a draw with Grasshopper. This 19-year-old midfielder also had the best chance to score in the first half the opponent team's goalkeeper saved his attempt from 10 meters on Jairo's assist.
"It's important that we get into chances to score, this time I didn't manage to score a goal but next time I will and there won't be any problems" said Blagaić after the match and then he commented the match:
"This was our first game after we started these winter preparations 10 days ago, I think we did well, we managed to follow our coach's instructions and wishes. It's important that we start getting used to the new requirements, we work a lot on tactics and I'm sure that after a while we will additionally improve certain mechanisms in our game. There are many more training sessions before we continue with official games and three more friendly games, so i'm sure that by the end of this preparation period everything will look much better" concluded Hajduk's midfielder.
