Alexander Grigoryan: “I wasn`t going to keep the players back”

 

At the post-match press conference, the head coach of "Anji" Alexander Grigoryan told the details of the Ural game.
"The forced sub of Bryzgalov, who received a microtrauma, that’s greatly affected the selection in the support zone, has strongly affected the outcome of the match," Grigoryan said. - Nevertheless, during the match we led with a score of 2:1. In the second half, we were able to do a lot in the attack, but we made a number of gross individual errors, including an own goal, and also conceded the last-gasp goal, as a result of the Zhirov’s mistake, who generally showed well. Of course, you can welcome that attacking impulse and the desire to win as a whole, but you need to be a little more practical and understand that every point is worth and to play today's match in a draw wouldn’t be shameful. The team's error is that they revealed in the end and pushed forward. On the other hand, I did not intend to restrain players, because it would be wrong to play defense against a rival who was available. Well, let's just say, the opponent was very effectively played by two forwards, who decided the outcome. I won't regard the issue of refereeing. Although in the fifth minute the opponent had a hand in his own penalty area, and this, as we understand, is a penalty. But nevertheless, I don’t want to comment on these things, because today nobody prevented us to achieve a victory. The opponent gave us chances and did not play concentrated from the defense. Today we created enough moments to win. Therefore, there is no point in talking about judicial mistakes today
