Former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United star, Norwegian Henning Berg, is about to make a soccer sensation in Hungary. Next weekend his Videoton has the chance to take over the top in the Hungarian soccer league.
On Saturday, Debrecen was beaten 1-0 away on a fierce and frozen pitch.
- It goes well here, and it was important for us to win this match. It has taken some time for the players to get used to a new style, both in defense and attack, says Berg.
One match remains before the winter break. Videoton fell as much as 18 points behind champions Ferencvaros last season. After a few months with Berg at the helm, the situation is turned upside down and is called a "revolution" by Hungarian football experts.
Videoton is in 2nd place, just one point behind the leading team Vasas. The distance down to Ferencvaros is four points.
Berg had success in Legia Warszawa where he won three titles in two years in the job.
Only a mistake by an administrative official in the second leg against Celtic, ruined the chance of securing a place in the Champions league's group stage just over two years ago.
But after the switch to Videoton, Berg is happy, and he believes Videoton will take over the top of the table.
- I am very happy, and we had put our chances in line with the style of the games, we would have lead the league by now, says Berg to NTB.
