Melbourne Heart young quiet achiever Konrad Machoy took time out over the weekend to talk to the hummel F-League
F-League: Konrad, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
KM: I’m 17 years old, turning 18 and I first started playing futsal when I was 13 and was selected to represent Victoria in the national school’s futsal championship. I joined the Victorian youth team when I was 15 and my passion for futsal progressed from there.
F-League: What has been your best moment on a Futsal court?
KM: The best moment would have to be playing in Spain, against some of the best clubs in the world. Experiencing futsal in a country with such an enthusiastic atmosphere made me see how diverse the game can be.
F-League: As this is you first season in the hummel F-League, what are your first impressions?
KM: The quality of the teams and the sport in general, is definitely much better than anywhere I have played throughout Australia. In my eyes this league lives up to its reputation. I’m happy to be apart of it and I look forward to playing in the years to come.
F-League: How do you think the team has been going after 3 Series?
KM: We have played some very good futsal, sadly this has not shown on the scoreboard, but I do believe that if the team stays to its game plan, we should gain some wins.
F-League: You appear to be the quite achiever of the hummel F-League, a regular on the score sheet and not saying much on the court, how do you think you have performed personally so far?
KM: Personally I believe I have done well and it won’t stop here. I am determined to not only keep up the good work, but to improve my performance throughout the series.
F-League: The brand Melbourne Heart is known in the A-League as being a community club, What is it like to pull on the Melbourne Heart shirt?
KM: It’s an honour to represent Melbourne Heart each time I step out onto the court as well as representing the club off the court. It’s also a great achievement to be apart of the team.
F-League: Series 4 is back in Victoria, what is it like to play at home in front of Family and Friends?
KM: With the support of family and friends, their encouragement and wanting to perform well in front of the most important people in your life will definitely boost our confidence as we head into a game.
F-League: Who is the funniest team mate in the Heart squad?
KM: I think the funniest team mate would be Callum Davies because he loves to joke around and thinks of creative names for every team mate.
F-League: How do you see Futsal currently in Australia, do you think the hummel F-League will help lift the profile of the game in this country?
KM: Futsal has become more popular over the past few years and it is continuing to do so. F-League has helped lift the profile of the game, as Australia needed it to do so. It has given players the opportunity to play throughout the year, not just during the summer.
F-League: Thanks for your time and Good Luck in the remainder of 2012 hummel F-League?
KM: Thanks. See you in Melbourne!
