The process has been on for almost a season and it will continue in global season 58. The rebirth of Mission Superliga Odense is on. A long time ago, Odense was a known as a sanctuary for worshippers of the Nordic god, Odin. Now Odense want to give Odin some new vikings with one mission only – To go and conquer the impossible!
Even though the project is still young, the long time club president of MS Odense Pierpaolo Scavo, is ready to talk about the long term process, to restart a team almost from scratch. 10 players with an age of only 17 years and some few days was brought to Odense to make a joint adventure towards and into 2016. An adventure to capture one of the most valuable trophies under HFA – The golden league trophy!
Almost one season has gone since the start of the project, and even though it hasn’t been successful on the field, MSO will continue to do what they did in the past season. “If you looked at the results it might not seem like a successful season for us, but it was” Scavo said, when we caught up with him earlier today. With 9 defeats, 3 drawn matches and only 2 league wins in one season. How can a dedicated manager like Scavo be please with the situation? “We expected nothing. Nothing at all, and that is why we are satisfied. We are by far the worst team in the league at the moment. But the squad is young. Very talented. It is a squad with a great future. We have no reason to be unhappy. We have scored 14 goals this season and we only have 17 defenders in the lineup. We should be celebrating. We have been the underdogs all season and we have won 4 and had 3 draws this season. much better than expected” he said.
The new season kickoff next week and it seems like the 7 league opponents will be the same once again. That don’t mean a thing to Scavo. “We can almost only disappoint next season because of the points we got this season, but we will continue the road to 2016 with out being shaken by bad results. Only injuries will make us consider changes. We have a very good group of talents and have decided not to spend big money on player without a long future in the club. That give us many defeats, but it also lower salaries and we can keep our money to pay the talents more when they get better. We do not need to win the golden league at this time. We do not need to promote to a higher league level and we have a plan and we intend to follow it all the way to the end”.
Now even though Odense might lose a lot, it doesn’t mean that you should stop following the rise of an old giant. “We have 10 good talents and a few of them is extraordinary talents. Guruskanthan Mukkamalla has done well so far. He is the team captain and has some very good and different skills. That goes for Alfred Postovoi too and Ali Kathem is a candidate for Kuwait U20. MSO will rise again and you haven’t seen the best from us yet”.
