He actually played against the Korean team for the first time,” he said. “I think the Korean team is a team with strong defense. It feels good to win today, and it was nice to be able to save some stamina at the end.”
When asked if he felt restrained by Korean Air, Muchhalski said, “All teams try to stop me when they play against me. In the end, it’s a fight against themselves. If you win the fight against yourself, you win.”

When asked if he could play in the Korean V-League, Mushalski briefly replied, “There is no reason not to.”
