Moyes struggles with Serbian problem


Manager David Moyes he has found it hard to check out TSC during the past weeks but knows they are a good team with a very decent record.

Speaking to the media at today’s presser he said: “It is a bit harder to get footage of them and get the levels of games you’d compare, but they are a side who have had a very good record.

They’ve done well at the start of this season too and we’ll get as much information as we can and give that to the players.

Getting information on Serbian team not easy

It’s not an easy thing to do, getting all the information on a team from Serbia, but it’s our job to do so and we’re looking forward to playing them and looking forward to going there [in November] as well.

It’s a compliment to them that they’ve got themselves into this situation [and into the group stage of the Europa League].

They played Braga in the Champions League qualifier last month and we’ve watched both games of that, which gives us a better idea of the levels of what we’re up against.

To be in the position they’re in [competing against Serbia’s traditional giants Crvena zvezda and Partizan] is very good.
