FCK 2-0 Viborg – Reaction

F.C. Copenhagen claimed a 2-0 win over Viborg on Sunday in Parken Stadium, with Roony Bardghji and Denis Vavro grabbing the goals either side of half time.

Roony cut in from the right to fire home just eight minutes into the clash, while Vavro scored another rocket akin to the goal he scored in UEFA Champions League qualifying action in midweek.

FCK head coach Jacob Neestrup said he was glad to get the Lions Superliga form back up and running follow last week's loss against Silkeborg.

"I am very satisfied with the whole match, because even though there were periods in both halves where we lost the initiative, we never lost control," said Neestrup.

"The only thing I can object to is just that we needed to make it 2-0 a bit sooner and close the game out with a third in the opening period of the second half.

"However, I think it was our best performance in the Superliga this season. We have changed a lot along the way, also more than we will probably do in upcoming games, because the European qualifiers were just so important.

"We may have lost our rhythm a little in some matches but today we didn't have any bad periods and we didn't give anything away at all.

"So I look back on a perfect start to the season in terms of results, even though we had a bad half-hour against Silkeborg that cost us the victory. We'll live with that, because we have won the other six games and we are first in the league, and we have reached the Champions League group stage."

Vavro's second long-range goal in two days – this time measured from 35 metres out – of course also got a few words from the head coach.

"Denis is doing everything a head coach says you shouldn't do. I had enough time to think "no" but then of course your emotions run all the way up the other end of the scale when you see the ball go in!" added Neestrup.

"He just has a hammer of a foot and it's probably very good that we have that weapon when our opposition is so deep. It's rubbed off on Kevin (Diks), who also had a classy long-range shot that hit the woodwork."

Many of the FCK first-team squad will now head off on national team duty during the international break. FCK's next class is against FC Nordsjælland on Saturday 16 September at 4pm.
