His team once again suffered defeat against Zenit Kazan, but once more the players of VfB Friedrichshafen played a very good match. And they were very lose to “steal” at least one set from the reigning European champions.
“I cannot say that I am happy, because we lost, but I am satisfied with the way my team played tonight. We learned a very good lesson from this game, and if Zenit Kazan wants to play once again, I will readily accept the challenge,” said Heynen.
After the previous match between these two teams, Heynen had to buy a bottle of beer to every person in the gym, as his team won one set against Zenit. He made the same promise before this match, but VfB Friedrichshafen suffered a straight-sets defeat.
“I had to buy 2.5 thousand bottles of beer after the previous match. One bottle cost about 1 Euro. Today, I also promised that I will buy a beer to our fans for each set we win… Therefore, maybe it is good that Zenit won that second set by 40:38. At least my wife won’t kill me (laugh).”
