FTC went by two goals, yet suffered a defeat from Slovan Liberec.
Ferencvaros played its second training game in the Spanish training camp Saturday afternoon. After playing against Rapid Wien, Thomas Doll’s team encountered Slovan Liberec from the Czech Republic. Our team dominated during the first half and our new signing, Moutari took the lead for Ferencváros in the 40th minute. Right after half time ours extended their lead by Böde’s header. Following some substitutions Liberec closed up in the 65th minute and then equalized in the 79th with a penalty. One minute later the Czech team even turned the result and won the match.
“As the trees of Kosztolányi, so belonged I to Üllői Street. My foes might have said: Albert loiters on the FTC pitch like the trees from Üllői Street with a slight difference; they don’t have their arms on their hips. Well, I was indeed loitering; what’s more, sometimes with my arms on my hip, but between two loitering, I performed some tricks, scored some goals and pleased a few hundred thousand football friends. For me, the FTC stadium meant everything: I, the lad from the countryside, could have become and became somebody there. MY FORTUNE LEAD ME THERE SINCE SOMEWHERE UP IN THE SKY IT HAD BEEN DETERMINED THAT MY LIFE WOULD BE FERENCVÁROS.” - Flórián Albert
