Even though he is playing his first professional season, the U.S. player Thomas Jaeschke has already made good results as a member of Resovia. The team from Rzeszow will play at the Final Four of the Champions League and in the finals of domestic championship as well.



Now, we will focus on the upcoming CEV Champions League Final Four that will take place in Krakow (16-17 April).

How would you rate your season in Resovia’s jersey so far?

We’ve obviously had our ups and downs. The start of the season was tough but since then we’ve been playing better and better. It’s my first season professionally and I am just grateful to have landed in such a good club” says Jaeschke in an interview for WorldofVolley.

What are the chances of Asseco Resovia against Zenit Kazan?

Kazan is a very good team so I think it’s really important we focus only on our side of the net. They have some of the best players in the world, and we have to expect those guys to make some good plays. It will be important to just take it play by play. Breaking the match down and just focusing on the next point instead of the whole match will help. We need to play very well but can definitely compete with them.”

What might be the decisive factor in this clash?

Like I said they have some of the best players in the world, Leon is arguably the best of them. We just need to expect him to have some big kills, but not let them affect us. We also need to manage his serving. Getting him off the service line will be very helpful. Also keeping our service pressure up will help a lot.”

Do you think that your fans could help Resovia beat the Russian team?

Of course our fans can help. We have arguably the best fans and I know the Arena will be packed and extremely loud. As someone who played there this summer but for the opponents’ team I know at first hand the energy the fans bring, it’s amazing. So yes of course they will help, I’m looking forward to a great match” concludes Thomas Jaeschke.
