Ståle: Variations in quality from first friendly

F.C. Copenhagen manager Ståle Solbakken admits there was plenty of variation in quality as the Lions drew 2-2 with OB in the first friendly same since the coronavirus lockdown.

FCK went 2-0 ahead only to be pinned back before the full time whistle.

The training game is part of preparations for the return to Superliga action on 1 June.

"Now we have been training together for a week and a half the physical form is excellent, but as you can see today, there is a lack of training," Ståle said.

"We started really well, but then dropped in level for a while. Throughout the match it was very fluctuating in quality.

"But there are several positive things that we can take, especially from the first half. After the break there were several who struggled, we generally saw that the players are at very different levels. Some didn't feel troubled so much, while others had a long 45 minutes on a big pitch.

We must use the next 10 days well
"There are still 10 days left until we play Superliga games again, and we have to use them well on the training ground. Fortunately we also have one more match on Tuesday.

"We have a slightly wider squad now. Before this match we only lacked Dame N'Doye and Nicolai Boilesen. Players like Jonas Wind and Robert Mudrazija have been out for so long that they still lack something to be in top fighting form, but that is what to expect.

"Viktor Fischer had to leave the field today as well, and we have to see in the next few days how serious he is, but even though there are more players who need to get into a fixed rhythm, we still have more choices than earlier in the season."
