Hajduk's captain Josip Juranović spoke to the media after the first championship match at Poljud in the new season, in which Hajduk beat Istra 1961 2:0.
"I would like to apologize for that defeat against Gzira and also to you media representatives for not commenting the game on Thursday. We were really down-hearted, I hope you understand. Apologies to everyone but after this victory, with the help of our supporters, we can get over that horrible situation. I can only promise that we will think only about each next game in order to restore everyone's confidence in us. We now have a new coach with new ideas and a new system, I think it will be an important additional impulse that will help us. He talked with us and tried to psychologically prepare us for the game. I think we could have scored another goal in the 20th minute already, we missed four great chances. With the right approach and behaviour, we can do many good things".
