Falk: We must play even better
F.C. Copenhagen's Rasmus Falk says the team needs to play even better despite the 3-1 win at Aalborg over the weekend.
Falk started the match in Jutland and was instrumental in the Lions' build-up play to their first two goals.
Now he has eyes on Viborg this coming weekend, and the Dane says the team is ready for another tough encounter.
"It is always important to get on the board in terms of points, and we also had good sequences in our game, especially after the break," said Falk after Wednesday training.
"We know that at the start of the season things can fluctuate, but we also know that we have a few more gears to move up in terms of play. We showed that towards the end of last season and we have to be even better – as team and as individuals in upcoming matches.
"We have an ambitious and bold style of play, which demands a lot from us, but it is also very motivating to make the team succeed with this style."
Build with Viborg win
Falk and his teammates will head back to Jutland for Sunday's encounter at Viborg. And the playmaker is wary of what the hosts will bring to the game.
"Viborg have really done well, and they have also played in Europe with success so far. It's gone really well for them," says Falk.
"We didn't take things lightly against them last season, so the game on Sunday will demand a lot from us. But we also demand from ourselves that we take control and dominate the game.
"I think that we found part of our rhythm in the second half in Aalborg, and we have to build on that in Viborg. We know that we have a really strong team with many talented players."
Heading in the right direction
Falk also feels himself improving after he suffered a minor setback right after the Lions' training camp in the Netherlands.
"I've had a really good preseason, but felt so bad after our match against Club Brugge," he explained.
"I started against Horsens and built on my fitness against AaB, so I'm clearly on the right track. We have a bit more time between games than we usually do at this time of the season, and I'm using that to build myself up right, so I'm ready for the programme that awaits us."
